Jimmy Barnes performs the Isaac Hayes and David Porter soul ballad 'When Something is Wrong With My Baby' with his brother John Swan at a New Year's Eve concert in Port Adelaide. 

Jimmy had recorded the song with John Farnham in 1991 and released it as the second single from his album Soul Deep; it reached number three on the Australian charts. 

Live concert editing needs to match the mood of the song and the direction excels at this. Slow pans and zooms onto Jimmy and his brother effectively telegraph the bond between them with few cutaways to band or audience to distract us.
