James Brown was the singer, songwriter, bandleader and dancer who indelibly transformed 20th-century music. Through the early 1970s Mr. Brown’s songs filled dance floors. His self-described super heavy funk gave him No. 1 R&B hits and Top 20 pop hits with Give It Up or Turnit a Loose and Mother Popcorn in 1969, Super Bad Pts. 1 & 2 in 1970, Hot Pants and Make It Funky in 1971, Get on the Good Foot Pt. 1 in 1972 and The Payback Pt. 1 in 1974. An obituary yesterday about James Brown misidentified the Georgia city where he took part in an annual Christmas toy giveaway on Friday. It was Augusta, not Atlanta. It was 1988, not 1987. John O’Neil contributed reporting.
