Covers: Prisoner of Love
Here’s another song covered by James Brown. The original version of “Prisoner of Love” was recorded in 1931. Brown’s version was released in 1963.
I am not a big fan of ballads but I love James Brown’s version of “Bewildered” from 1959. The original version was by Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra from 1938. I also know the cover by Amos Milburn from 1948.
