This is a Johnny Otis related record from California. Despite the rumors (and the fact that Funky Delicacies put it on an Eddie Bo comp) Eddie Bo had nothing to do with it.

Based on the reference details, Carnival 549, the correct flip side is "Clap and Stomp". The Complete artist information as listed on the record is Wilbur Bascomb and the Blues Zodiact (this is how it's spelled on the record, but it's probably a misprint). Bascomb wrote and produced the record. If you're looking at the B side to Carnival 555, "Take Me Back" is listed as a record by a group called The Three Reasons. Bascomb, a bassist, has two nicknames, "Bad" and "Dud", and in the past he has collaborated with James Brown, Galt MacDermott, Reuben Wilson, Idris Muhammad and Bernard Purdie. Another title he is known for is "Black Grass". Bascomb, one of the top session players of the 1970s, also released an album in 1977 on the H and L label called "Wilbur Bascomb and Future Dreams".

The Believers on BrownStone 45

Aug 21 2002 11:31AM by J R Mullett
This is the same record as 'Across The Tracks' by The Believers, on Brownstone, and is a James Brown production. Its not clear if Contempo (a UK label) had proper authority to release it, which might explain the name change. Strange one for them to release over here because it wasn't a hit, and Brownstone originals are now rare and very expensive.

Mark the 45 King made this break infamous. Another James Brown Production that funks at an unreal pace.
