5.0 out of 5 stars Top(s) Of Their World, 17 Dec 2012
This review is from: Backbeats Artists Series: Chairmen of the Board - Executive Group (Audio CD)
Take a slew of ex-Motown writers/producers, combine with three excellent soul voices and what do you get? Yep, the Invictus label's early 70's answer to The Four Tops (as General Johnson is easily up there with Levi Stubbs on heartache and angst vocals).

The best Chairmen Of The Board compilation is actually the 4CD Finders Keepers anthology BUT it's hard to get now and very pricey. This, then, is the next best thing - a single CD that has all the brilliant singles and a few album tracks thrown in. Their first three hits - 'Give Me Just A Little More Time', 'You've Got Me Dangling On A String' and 'Everything's Tuesday' are amongst the best singles EVER of any genre. There's a wistful version of 'Patches' (a hit for Clarence Carter in the UK) and some of their later, more funkier, tracks such as 'Skin I'm In'.

Towering above them all though is 'I'm On My Way To A Better Place'. It's both poignant and uplifting at the same time - General Johnson's vocals ache with an almost religious fervour. Awesome! All in all then this is a VERY worthwhile purchase.

I loved every second of this album, which brought back lots of memories. I have bought a few Backbeats albums and they have all been phenomenal value for money.
