The Players were comprised of Herbert Butler, John Thomas and Otha Givens. They first began recording when they were still young. Their average age was only 21 and their voices blended exceptionally well together. They combined their Chicago Blues roots with Doo-Wop and Rhythm and Blues to lay down some of the most soulful tracks you'll ever hear.

  • 1.Get Hep To Love
  • 2.He'll Be Back
  • 3.I Love You A Thousand Times
  • 4.I Wanna Be Free
  • 5.I'm Glad I Waited
  • 6.Peace Of Mind
  • 7.Since I Don't Have You
  • 8.Sunny
  • 9.There's Got To Be A Way
  • 10.When A Man Loves A Woman

Product Description:

Unknown Contributor Roles: Herbert Butler; John Thomas .
Arranger: Riley Hampton.
The Players -- Tony Lee Johnson, Herbert Butler, and Otha Lee Givens -- were a sweet singing trio that sounded similar to the pre-Cuba Gooding Main Ingredient, when the late Don McPherson sang lead. Minit rushed this album onto the streets to capitalize on their R&B hit "He'll Be Back," a tearjerker about a girl lamenting because her fellow is serving in Vietnam. The follow-up, "I'm Glad You Waited," was better but slightly less popular; it was an answer to "He'll Be Back," in which the soldier returns home and thanks his lady for waiting patiently. A remake of the Platters' "I Love You a Thousand Times" doesn't compare to the original. Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman" gets a strip-down also, as none of the grit and guts displayed by Sledge is evident on the Players' rendition. The rest of the songs are classic filler; they're all right, but lack fire. ~ Andrew Hamilton

Rating 4.0 He'll be Back Music Lover: from Mix Masters Hammond,IN Chicago,IL -- March, 21, 2009

Maybe I'm sort of biased being a D.J. from Chicago but the track He'll Be Back always moved my boys from the Southeast Side of Chi - Town. Excellent Track! I recommend this disc on that rare track alone.
