Bobby Byrd - Sayin' It And Doin' It 
Soul Brother Number 1a, Bobby Byrd is best remembered for being James Brown's right hand man during his peak years and for his own scintillating early 70s sides "I Know You Got Soul" and "Hot Pants I'm Coming I'm Coming I'm Coming." 

Sayin' It And Doin' It collects tracks from his comeback in the early 90s when he hooked up with the German Soulciety label at the height of the acid-jazz movement.  The fifteen tracks show Byrd and band in fine form, performing with an intensity and reverence for the old school that meks them precursors to the deep funk phenomenon.  "Back From The Dead" delivers a message to those who had written him off, while "The Way To Get Down" and "Never Get Enough" display the fire that made him a legend.
