... I have a 300 plus something single collection. Strictly 7 inch 45s on vinyl by James Brown, Fred and other J.B. related artists. The J.B.'s had - for some odd reasons - a bunch of different names. For instance J.B.'s Wedge, The Progressors, The Devils, A.A.B.B. and others ... I found eight singles that read "Fred Wesley & The J.B.'s" and two are introducing "Fred Wesley & The NEW J.B.'s". The latter two are the same, just issued by different European countries. ... I have made color copies from the singles and will decorate the church hall or the front of the stage with these covers, so the people can catch the feel of the time when the records came out. ...
He was kind enough to share the following images and information, which we're now sharing here. Enjoy!
