    This is some sad news for psychedelic R&B fans. This was a truly rockin' group.

    This is unreal. They KILL it. Right up there with the original, IMO

    Always loved these guys. Their version of "People Get Ready" is my favorite of anyone's. The harmonies are beautiful. Rest in Peace, Pops. Thank you for your music.

    They really had a unique sound. A truly rockin' R&B sound with unmatched harmonies.

    RIP. The full length version of "Time Has Come Today" is the essential version of this song. Along with Sly and the Family Stone, The Chambers Brother are my favorite of 60s/70s R&B music bands with psychedelic leanings and funk.
