The Chambers Brothers - Voice Your Choice

With the exception of drummer Brian Keenan, who sadly died of a heart attack at the young age of 42 in 1985, the rest of the band were, in fact, the Chambers Brothers. They were from Lee County, Mississippi. It's not hard to tell in the picture who Brian Keenan is. :-)

Interestingly, they all shared vocals, both lead and background. Pretty impressive. George played bass; Willie,   and Joe played guitar; and Lester played harmonica.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents The Chambers Brothers with two of their hits for your votes. Would you like me to play Time Has Come Today or I Can't Turn You Loose? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice Page. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of the Mother's Day Special.
