Charlie Chin is an folksinger guitarist and banjo player. He was in group Cat Mother and the All-Night Newsboys who had a Top 40 hit in the Summer of 1969, reaching no. 21 on the U.S. Billboard Pop Chart, with the rock and roll medley "Good Old Rock'n'Roll" which included cover versions of "Sweet Little Sixteen" by Chuck Berry, "Long Tall Sally" by Little Richard, "Chantilly Lace" by The Big Bopper, "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins and "Party Doll" by Buddy Knox. The single and the band's first album, The Street Giveth and the Street Taketh Away, were produced by Jimi Hendrix.

The members of the band were Bob Smith on vocals, keyboards and drums, Roy Michaels on vocals and bass guitar, William David "Charlie" Chin on vocals and guitar, Larry Packer on guitar and violin and Michael Equine on drums and guitar.

They released four albums in all:

* 1968 The Street Giveth... and the Street Taketh Away - Featuring the above lineup
* 1970 Albion Doo-Wah - Added to the above lineup were Jay Ungar (violin, mandolin, guitar, & vocals), Paul Johnson (guitar), and special guest Lyndon Lee Hardy (vocals on two songs).

Chin left the lineup soon after the 1st album was released, and in an attempt to also sever ties with manager Michael Jeffrey, the remaining bandmembers traveled to San Francisco to record the follow-up, 1970s Albion Doowah.
