Chairman of the Board: In Session (Invictus)

Dave Marsh, Creem, March 1971

THIS IS REPUTEDLY a live set, recorded in Harlem at the Apollo but I doubt that. But regardless of that little caveat emptor, the Chairmen of the Board are the most listenable of the black rhythm and blues groups on the scene this year. General Johnson's voice, with it's Billy Stewart tinge, is unquestionably fine and all in all these boys can shore sing pritty.
