The Chambers' Brothers "Time Has Come Today" has been used and overused as a commercial cliche but the song still does not lose its power, originality and experiemental energy. And it is long; very long, and inspires attentive listening, because it is nigh unto impossible to dance to. The rest of the CD is good solid 60s soul, but nothing as wonderful as their one big crossover hit.

While I agree with most of the other reviews concerning the music quality of this album, I thought I'd mention - for the truly picky - that the sound quality is not consistently good. It sometimes seems that this disk was produced on the cheap, and probably not from the original masters. Even for the time when they were made, I reckon that the master recordings should be in better shape than some on this reproduction. (I'm anxious to hear these tracks on other Chambers Brothers albums to confirm my suspicions.) The sound is sometimes murky, often distorted more than most from that era, and the frequency range is typical of mass-produced LPs of the day - not as good as many masters of the time. So I guess that this is a mediocre transcription.
Nevertheless, I agree that the songs range from fair to inspired, powerful, and sometimes downright beautiful. It's unfortunate that the mastering could likely do them better justice. Still, this is nitpicking. The music rocks - and usually makes me forget my yen for better transcriptions.
(Incidentally, those who appreciate the more psychedelic throes of "Time Has Come Today" might check out Vanilla Fudge's first album, "Vanilla Fudge." The music - and, unfortunately, the sound - are much in the same vein.)

This CD has all you need to know about the Chamber's Brothers.
The mix is right on the money: Time, Can't Turn You Loose, and my favorite version of People Get Ready - no one does it better.
The Time has Come Today Album was indeed a better release, however, this one is good and has all of the Chamber's Brothers goodies. This music never goes out of style!

Everybody knows "Time Has Come Today," but how many remember the Chambers Brothers' deeply moving version of Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready"? That song alone justifies the price of this CD! But there are a number of other fine, funky tunes on this CD as well, such as "Please Don't Leave Me" and "All Strung Out (Over You)." And the Brothers' version of "In the Midnight Hour" surpasses even the great original hit version in its power. In short, this CD has more harmony and soul power than 99.9% of the other pop albums you or I own!

I love the Chambers Brothers but this down load is of such poor quality...very cheap and tinny very little base tones. I tried to enhance it with a couple of music programs , instead found a much better version on I Tunes and purchased it there...

The Time Has Come: The Best Of The Chambers Brothers is a much better deal. It contains all but one of these tracks (Funky) but it has a total of 16 tracks. Some have pointed out inferior sound on this release. Can't say I've noticed this on the collection I mentioned above. That said, I do know that the masters for LOVE, PEACE AND HAPPINESS were lost so any recording from that collection is a later generation recording. That may explain the problem. For stars here because of the more recent collection that makes this collection obsolete

this Band should be far more known.everybody knows "Time Has Come today" but this Band was far more than a Commerical or Catch Phrase Group.they Blended Many Styles&were right there with Sly&The Family Stone,Jimi Hendrix,etc... at Fusion&Adding many styles into there work.History hasn't done this Band Justice at all they have Meant to Music as we know it.check this Out&Hear Music without a Label.

This is a great compilation of the band that truly exemplified the genre Psychedelic Soul. If you dig The Temptations, and Sly And The Family Stone than this is a must have. Raw Funky Soulful jams that are truly infectious. Songs from this album can be heard in samples on alot of hip hop tracks. Buy this album for sure/
