For Chambers Bros., Time Has Come in a Big Way

Mike Gormley, The Ottawa Journal, 1 November 1968

The Chambers Brothers, Willie, George, Lester, Joe and non-brother drummer Brian Keenan have been creating electric earth tremors in clubs, colleges and concert halls, throughout the United States with an exciting blend of gospel, rock and blues. Their recent big seller 'Time Has Come Today' was hailed enthusiastically by both blues and rock exponents.
