180 gram exact repro reissue, originally released in 1974 and recorded during the same session as James Brown's The Payback album. Fred Wesley was a long-time director of Brown's backing band The J.B.'s -- and essentially was responsible for a lot of Brown's drug-addled ideas coming to fruition, having even written classic songs like "Doin' It To Death" and "Papa Don't Take No Mess." Damn Right I Am Somebody and Breakin' Bread contain classic Wesley-Brown proto-funk cuts, and this album includes covers of Marvin Gaye's "You Sure Love To Ball" and "Going To Get A Thrill."
