Showtime is the seventh studio album by American musician James Brown. The album was released in April 1964, by Smash Records. It was the transition album from King Records to Smash Records, however, handicapped by contractual obligations with King Records, Brown released an album of remakes overdubbed with canned applause.
James Brown's contract with King Records had a few more legs, and the Godfather of Soul was handicapped in what he could wax for Smash Records, his new label. Hence, an album of remakes enhanced - or marred - by overdubbed applause. Some apparently don't have a problem with overdubbed applause, judging from the lofty prices record collectors ask and get for a copy.

This record in particular is noteworthy because there aren't any JB originals on the album, unlike the other Smash releases. The album is set up like a live show, but the crowd noise is clearly dubbed into the record. Perhaps it may have fooled a hopeless JB teenage groupie back in the day?! Reply Notify me 2 Helpful.

One night farmer Brown was takin' the air And I locked up the barnyard with the greatest of care Down in the hen house something stirred When he shouted, "Who's there?" This is what he heard. There ain't nobody here but us chickens There ain't nobody here at all So calm yourself and stop that fuss There ain't nobody here but us.
