Mr Oscar Brown, Jr. Goes to Washington
In 1964 Fontana Records signed and recorded Oscar Brown, Jr. live while appearing at the Cellar Door. In his open letter to the US government calling for reparations to Blacks for slavery, “40 Acres and a Mule” is swinging, humorous, cutting and incisive. Most of the songs deal with more universal and timeless topics including love and relationships and the pressures endured when living double, in “A World of Trouble. Nothing is more tender and jolting than “Muffled Drums,” Brown’s reverent tribute to “fallen chieftain” John F. Kennedy.
