It's hard enough making sense of the number of records James Brown put out under his own name, let alone the number of records he "produced".
But that's not going to stop us from highlighting some of the best ones.
In this case, the recordings of Miss Yvonne Fair.
Sugar Pie DeSanto, Bea Ford, Marva Whitney, Tammy Montgomery, Lynn Collins, Vicki Anderson, Anna King . . . they all served in that vaguely creepy spot as James Brown's opening "girl" act and occasional duet partner. But none of them produced records I love as much as I love the ones JB concocted for Yvonne Fair and her weird little shrill "ow"'s. He seems to have lavished extra attention on them, or at least extra organ - maybe Yvonne got lucky that JB was working out his organ playing (not to mention his brand new bag) in the early 60s when he cut her best sides.
Speaking of vaguely creepy, this has got to be the eeriest and least textually convincing version of "You Can Make It If You Try" ever laid down. Sounds like the aforementioned Ike Turner's "Sinner's Dream" or something.
