"Love, Peace And Happiness" by The Chambers Brothers (1969)
The Chambers Brothers "Love, Peace And Happiness"  1969 (USA)
The Chambers Brothers were four brothers from Mississippi who wound up starting a folk and gospel singing group in Los Angeles in the 1950's. In 1965 they made a splash at the Newport Folk Festival at the same time Bob Dylan was electrifying and "inventing folk rock". Their biggest hit came a couple years later by which time they had become more of a psychedelic soul garage band: the original album version of "Time Has Come Today" was a masterful 11-minute psychedelic freakout which didn't make the charts until they chopped it down to a 4-minute single almost a year later. They never scored another hit anywhere near that big, but recorded plenty of great tracks in the late sixties. Their most ambitious release is this week's classic album: a double elpee with one live concert record and one studio record, half of which is the titular track which takes up a whole side of the record and is their longest epic (16 minutes of groovy psychedelic soul.)
