A nice copy of a rare (and very good) Chambers Brothers LP.

Background: Released in late 1967, The Time Has Come was the debut LP by the rock/R&B/psych band the Chambers Brothers.

The album reached #6 on the U.S. album chart, helped by the #11 single “Time Has Come Today.” gave The Time Has Come a 4 1/2 star review:

This, the Chambers Brothers’ coming-of-age record, was a well-timed and even better executed exercise in modern record-making. …Having demoed a slightly demented song that year called “Time Has Come Today,” the group entered the studio with producer David Rubinson, who was fresh from some critical acclaim after recording Moby Grape. The resulting album and subsequent title track hit were huge successes, especially on FM radio. The rest of the album shows the brothers not just embracing the psychedelic trends, but also redefining their R&B leanings.
