The smooth, sweet, romantic and harmonious sound of The Brothers Of Soul was born paradoxically out of the violent and angry racial/political conflicts of the late '60s. The group scored many regional hits and had a national hit with "I Guess That Don't Make Me A Loser", all of which are included here. They last recorded as a group in 1971 but each member has continued to produce and write for other artists.

Fred Bridges, Richard Knight and Robert Eaton were the Brothers of Soul, singing separately in various ensembles until 1967, when they united mainly as a writing team. They turned out hits for Chicago producer Ric Williams, notably with vocalist Ruby Andrews ("You Made A Believer Out Of Me"). They very quickly moved on to recording their own songs on Williams' Zodiac and Boo labels. They were always big in Chicago, but never really broke through to the national level. This is unfortunate, because their songs are beautiful examples of well-crafted smooth Soul. Their lush arrangements were devised by the team, with Mike Terry translating to the written page for the orchestra.
