Out Of Sight

Album: Out Of Sight (1964)
Charted: 24
  • In 1964, Brown and his agent formed Fair Deal Records and began leasing new recordings to Smash Records. When this was released by Smash, Brown's old label, King Records, sued him for breach of contract. While the lawsuit was percolating through the system, this reached #24 on the singles charts, and Smash readied "I Got You (I Feel Good)" for release, which it did in the summer of '64.
  • In October 1964, a judge ruled that Smash would be allowed to issue only instrumental recordings by Brown, and all masters of his vocals would become property of King Records. Distribution of "I Got You (I Feel Good)" was halted upon the ruling.
  • This was King Record's third Smash single, after "Caldonia" (a big-band version of Louis Jordan's classic hit) and a cover of Guitar Slim's "The Things I Used to Do."
  • Brown recorded this with his band, The Famous Flames. >>
