The Shades of Brown LP Cover | AllMusic | tc230
Originally recording for ABC under the name The Mentors, The Shades of Brown were Bill Brown, Charles Scott, Earle Roberts and Christopher Allen and adopted their new name on signing for Cadet. Cadet hoped for a “Temptations” “psychesoul” style of sound. They issued one album from which a few singles were drawn. The group split up shortly afterwards.
