1966: James Brown records "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" at Bob Gallo's Talentmasters studio in New York. The song would top the Billboard R&B chart and reach #13 in the UK. The song was originally called "It's A Man's World", but Brown added the extra words to the title as a reference to the 1963 hit comedy It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
