Chairmen Of The Board

Chairmen Of The Board

Profile:
American soul music vocal group, active mostly in the 1970's and still touring.
When Holland-Dozier-Holland left Motown in 1967 to establish their own Invictus/Hot Wax (4) group of record labels, General Johnson was teamed with Eddie Custis, Danny Woods (3) & Canadian born Harrison Kennedy as the new company's flagship act, under the appropriate name "Chairmen of the Board". Custis left the group after their second album.
Although they all had a turn at lead vocals, Johnson's voice is lead on their biggest hit, "Give Me Just a Little More Time", released in December 1969, with one million sales confirmed in May 1970. Johnson's quirky hiccup-laden style and his songwriting became increasingly showcased into the 70's, although the band's second biggest hit, "Pay To The Piper" featured a lead vocal by Danny Woods.
The Chairmen of the Board were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 1999.

Chairmen of the Board: Holland and Dozier uniting with General Johnson created some of the most influential sounds in soul music ever recorded. Their first two albums "Chairmen of the Board" & "In Session" are in my constant rotation of all time favorite albums. "In Session" is my favorite album, being just marvelous from start to finish. It's Contains so many hits like, "Chairmen of the Board" "All We Need Is Understanding" "Patches" "Hanging on to a Memory" & "Children of Today". Every song by Chairmen of the board is at least a 3 star hit with well over 80% being 4 or 5 stars. All things stated are of course my opinion but if you haven't heard "CotB" you will not be disappointed. A+ 5/5 "It's gonna be alright, with a little more understanding, cause things go bett-er with love & understanding" -Chairmen of the Board
