Underrated Classic On CD For The First Time, With Bonus Tracks!

The result, I Am My Brother's Keeper, produced the hit single "Stand By Me," and a stack of incendiary, soulful duets. Available at Hip-OSelect.com via its Motown Select imprint, it's now on CD for the first time.

Beautifully remastered, this special collector's package also includes two unreleased bonus tracks: "You're What I Need (Not What I Want)," a previously unheard composition from the album sessions, and an alternate mix of "Stand By Me," which was overdubbed with fake live ambience for the record. This "Brothers Mix" is presented without the overdubs, making for a more intimate experience spotlighting the interplay between brothers Jimmy and David.

A 16-page booklet includes a new essay, rare photos - including a previously unpublished alternate album cover - and detailed track annotations.

1. He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother

2. Stand By Me

3. When My Love Hand Comes Down
