Information

In the early 1960s, The Chambers Brothers, four brothers from Mississippi, Joe and Willie on guitar, Lester on harmonica, and George on washtub bass, started to venture outside the gospel circuit, playing at coffeehouses that booked folk acts.
They were introduced to Pete Seeger, who helped put the Chambers Brothers on the bill of the legendary Newport Folk Festival.
The group became part of the wave of new music that integrated American blues and gospel traditions with modern psychedelic and rock elements, spawning a heady mix integrating all these factors.

Based on their Southern roots, the brothers brought a raw authenticity to their recordings and live performances.
The Chambers Brothers are best known for their 1968 hit record, the 11-minute long epic 'Time Has Come Today'.

Reviews

  • Barry Brown - Blackman should never turn his backBarry BrownBlackman should never turn his back

    Barry Brown roots produced by Ripton "Eek-A-Mouse" Hilton in the mid-seventies. Very rare tune to find but no re-issued by Gaffa Blue. Nice dub piece on the flipside of the same tune.

  • Wailers - Guided MissileWailersGuided Missile

    Drum machine led roots. There is a strong Lee Perry influence on this one. Not quite as over the top as Scratchs productions but never the less a good tune.
