James Brown's Original version of "Mother Popcorn"

Here is the original version of James Brown's number 11 Pop hit, Mother Popcorn (You Got to Have a Mother for Me). This version is called You've Got to Have a Mother for Me. It was planned for release in early 1969, but shelved for I Don't ant Nobody. It was released later that year but under a new name and music.


The tune would show up later own down the road. Most JB fans probably recognize the background track as it was used for Bobby Byrd's Hit I Need Help, the James Brown Bands tune Use Your other and other artist in the James Brown Revue.

I heard this a couple of years ago and downloaded a snippet but it didn't have the lead guitar in the background. It did have the rhythm guitar though. I loved this version minus the lead though. I always thought this was Bootsy playing bass.

Here is the version with the lead guitar out in front. It's called Use Your Mother

That track was first released on the 1988's "Mother Lode" compilation on Polydor, a highly recommended release.
