James Brown, Night Train/Why does everything happen to me


James Brown was born on May 3, 1933 and died on December 25, 2006. “Night Train” is one of his few instrumentals; the band is really great. Mr Brown does put in an appearance during the recording, as a railway attendant! The track is taken from a 1962 LP called James Brown presents his band. The date does not appear on the UK Sue single. The recording, with the same B side, was originally issued in the UK on EMI Parlophone R 4922 in July, 1962. It is thought that the original song writer of “Why does everything happen to me” was Roy Hawkins.
