Without a doubt, The Chambers Brothers biggest hit was "Time Has Come Today", and deservedly so! That song is on this CD in its full-length version as well as the well-known single version (in the bonus tracks). "Time has come today" is certainly one of the best songs of the sixties and, in comparison to some other 60s era hits, this song is as powerful today as it was then. However, this album is NOT a psychedelic album, it is a decidedly Gospel sounding album with some 60's rock elements. The fact is The Chambers Brothers were a great Gospel group, one of the best, and the group (and this album) is still much underrated in both rock and Gospel history. Oddly enough, "Time Has Come Today" was in many ways a departure from their usual style and gave a false impression of what the group was really all about. For those who come to this album without the expectation of hearing psychedelic music throughout, they will find a very wonderful and imaginative Gospel group.
