    Curious to know who is playing bass with James Brown and the J.B's in this clip from 1978. Ferocious speed, and very funky with that disco hi-hat thrown in. Absolutely love it.

    I'm guessing Baroy Scott

    Thanks. I think David Weston toured with him in '78. Whoever it is, they're putting a nice groove into the song, particularity at that tempo. The latter half of the gig gets a bit frantic though. I'd rate this as one of his best concerts, alongside the Paris Olympia 71. Bootsy is on fire all through that set!
