This is the first overview of the essential recordings of Oscar Brown Jr. on Columbia. This 23 track compilation includes tracks from all four of his Columbia albums, including seven tracks from his first, "Sin And Soul". Oscar was a pioneer of protest songwriting and he was a key figure in the early civil rights movement, as reflected in his lyrics. Many of his songs are famous in their own right - with mod and R&B clubbers especially fond of "Humdrum Blues" - and his songs "Work Song" and "The Snake" have become standards (this CD includes the original, superior versions). Of his four albums, only one has been reissued and this album sees 16 tracks released on CD for the first time.
