Cornelius Brothers And Sister Rose (United Artists)
Wayne Robins, Creem, November 1972
BASICALLY, THERE ARE two Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose (CB&SR) sounds. One is the basic, upbeat piano sound layered with tight, spiraling harmony, as in Treat Her Like A Lady, their 1971 summer hit. The other is the smooth, nice 'n' easy soul sound so popular in the summer of '72, what with the Stylistics, Chi-Lites, reemergence of the O'Jays, Al Green, and CB&SR's own Too Late to Turn Back Now.
