Music from Our Tube; Oscar Brown Jr. “Brother where are you?”

Had heard this beauty on KCRW a couple of times already, but only now managed to capture artist & title; Oscar Brown Jr. with the live-version of “Brother where are you?”

Oscar Brown Jr. – Brother where are you? (Audio)

The album-version is radically different; I feel it is over-arranged in sixties soul-style (it is sixties soul after all), rendering it less powerful, less haunting. There’s also a Matthew Herbert remix of this live-track (might even have been that one on KCRW) and I like the female background-vocals, but I still prefer the original live version really.
