Biography

The Chambers Brothers

The Chambers Brothers began as a gospel group that migrated to the burgeoning folk music movement in the early 1960’s. They played at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival where Bob Dylan “went electric,” which they began to do following the event as well. They scored their biggest hit in 1968 with, “Time has Come Today,” which was an 11-minute tripped out drum-driven song, which also had a shortened version living just outside the Billboard Top Ten for 8 weeks. The song contains the immortal line, “and my soul’s been psychedelicized.”
