The Chambers Brothers – I Can't Stand It
"I Can't Stand It" is a stand-out track from The Chambers Brothers' 1967 release, Time Has Come. This is the album where the Brothers' Chamber came alive. They had been moving through the folk scene gaining notoriety (even singing back-up for Dylan on some unreleased tracks), but with Time Has Come, the boys electrified and funkified.
This radio-ready single is usually overlooked since this album also contained the Brothers' biggest hit "Time Has Come Today". The guys were often called the East Coast Sly Stone, and you can hear that in this one. I like the big cavernous drums, harp breakdown, and The Who-sounding high harmonies. Bangin' track, guys.
