A chronicle of James Brown's rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians in history.
Just before James hits the stage on the T.A.M.I. show, there's a shot of two of the hosts, one dressed as a fire fighter, ready to introduce James and the Flames. It's actually footage from the 1964 broadcast of the T.A.M.I. show. The 2 people are Jan and Dean (Dead Man's Curve).

At the beginning of 1965, Ben gives James a chauffeur-driven black 1967 Cadillac.
