    Description

    James Brown Stage-Worn Sparkling Cape. A sparkling, periwinkle-blue full-length stage cape with blue satin lining, worn on stage by James Brown. The Godfather of Soul was known for his flamboyant stage attire nearly as much as he was known for his distinctive voice, hit songs, and incredibly tight band. This cape is a perfect example of the opulent garments he wore throughout his career. Given to Roosevelt "R.J." Johnson by Brown. Roosevelt was called "the Right Hand Man of Soul", as he was a close friend as well as the personal assistant of James Brown. In Fine condition.
