Showtime is the seventh studio album by American musician James Brown. The album was released in April 1964, by Smash Records.

Some apparently don't have a problem with overdubbed applause, judging from the lofty prices record collectors ask and get for a copy.

One night farmer Brown was takin' the air And I locked up the barnyard with the greatest of care Down in the hen house something stirred When he shouted, "Who's there?" This is what he heard.
