1971

I'M A GREEDY MAN * JAMES BROWN * POLYDOR 14100 * USA

James Brown's third for the major Polydor label and he's in a familiar didactic mode, this time it's about his appetite for carnal pleasures. The gist of his lesson is look after your partner least he, or somebody else, looks after them for you! 

It's a familiar sermon in recorded music and goes, at least, back to 1933 and Bessie Smith singing Do Your Duty.
