Part of Sylvia Robinson's stable of artists at All Platinum, Brother to Brother was one of her few acts not to come from New Jersey.  Michael Burton, Billy Jones, Frankie Prescott and Yogi Horton came to Robinson via St. Louis, where they honed their chops.   Signing to Turbo, the band got an immediate hit with a version of "The Bottle," busting into the top 10 in 1974.   The very tasty "Chance With You" was their only other hit. Frequent lineup changes kept them from developing any consistency.

Brother to Brother's Deepest Grooves

In the Bottle (Turbo, 1974)

Let Your Mind Be Free (Turbo, 1976)
Probably their best album but still with flaws. The low-level classic "Chance With You" gets a big assist from Bernadette Randle of the Rim Shots working her magic on the keys.  There are a few  decent songs here, but at their worst, they sound like a bad approximation of KC and the Sunshine Band.  

Shades in Creation (Turbo, 1977)
