This single is available in this CD collection: The Singles Volume 1: The Federal Years 1956-1960. It’s also available in this MP3 collection: The Federal Years: 1956-1960.

Early release from James Brown and the Famous Flames.  These Federal singles had every type of groove going on. These are the elements that would be the recipe for FUNK music in the future.

Can’t Be the Same is a rock & roll groover. Gonna Try has a gospel blues feel.
