James Brown Month: Fans of James Brown

Malick Sidibe's photographs of dancers, partiers, stylin' youngsters, and vinyl culture in Bamako, Mali in the mid 60s are some seriously inspirational and funky viewing material.  Great galleries of his stuff are all over the internet, especially this one and this one.  

This photo is called "Fans of James Brown 1965" although I doubt that date is accurate, considering Live at the Apollo Volume II wasn't even recorded until 1967.

Still - killer photo!
