"This Old Heart" is a song written by James Brown and recorded by Brown and The Famous Flames. Although they performed it in a rhythm and blues style, it originated as a country song.[1] Released as a single in 1960, it charted #20 R&B and #79 Pop.[2] It was the group's last release on Federal Records before they switched to its parent label, King. It was also one of their first songs to be released in the United Kingdom (by Fontana).[3]
