Formed in the late 60s in Detroit, Chairmen Of The Board were a soul outfit using vocal harmonies and catchy funky melodies. Their first single "Give Me Just A Little More Time" was an instant hit and established the group as one of the most important soul acts of the early 70s. Lead singer (and main songwriter) General Norman Johnson's instantly recognisable high register, trembling vocals gave them an identity all of their own. This fifteen track compilation includes all their hits from the early 70s before disco came along and they were no longer needed.
