Two Versions of a Great Song ...

I just found this video on ALL SOUL AND FUNK. Definitely a great cover of the immortal Bill Withers tune -- but somewhat dull, in my opinion. If you close your eyes and just listen, this rendition definitely lacks in emotional depth. The visual effects fill in the needed intensity.

My favorite version: this guy credibly conveys what is going on inside him when he notices the little signs betraying infidelity ... Psychedelic music required a special kind of artist to accompany the already intense sound.
The group consisted of two male singers and three females. Unfortunately, I don't know who the lead singer was on this song.

The original by Bill Withers from his 1972 album Still Bill (Sussex Records)
