Everybody's Doin' the Hustle & Dead on the Double Bump (JB's 41st studio album,  originally released in 1974) found James Brown making more of an effort to connect with current musical trends and create coherent song structures than he had on the previous Sex Machine Today. The album, in essence, consisted of Brown's two successful R&B singles of the period, "Hustle!!! (Dead on It)" and "Superbad, Superslick," with a collection of songs and re-makes that reflected the time . The version of "Papa got a brand new bag," is noteworthy. The reliance on keyboard textures was new for Brown, and he sounded more enthusiastic, especially in interplay with saxophonist Maceo Parker, than in recent efforts.
