Playing the groove is life for us. It’s our breathing. It’s what we’re all about
Brown recorded "Give It Up or Turnit a Loose" again with The J.B.'s for his 1970 double album Sex Machine. Over five minutes long, this later recording used a substantially different instrumental arrangement, with an added organ riff and a florid bassline, as well as different lyrics. A remix of this recording by Tim Rogers appears on the 1986 compilation album In the Jungle Groove. The remixed version has been extensively sampled.
