James Brown is forever linked with the sound and image of the Famous Flames vocal/dancing group.

They backed him on record from 1956 through 1964» and supported him onstage and on the King Records label credits (whether they sang on the recording or not) through 1968.

He worked with a rotating cast of Flames in the 1950s until settling on the most famous trio in 1959, as the group became his security blanket, sounding board, and launching pad.
