Just read critic David Denby's rave review of the new James Brown biopic in the New Yorker. One of the most fantastical, intriguing, and baffling figures of 20th C music. I'm very keen to see this... Novelist Jonathan Lethem's 2006 profile of Brown for Rolling Stone is a must read. And I highly recommend R.J. Smith's full scale biography of the singer, "The One".
