THE KELLY BROTHERS - HOW CAN TRUE LOVE BE THIS WAY b/w IF THAT WILL HOLD YOU


The Kelly Brothers were made up of three real brothers (Curtis Kelly, Andrew Kelly, Robert Kelly), along with T. C. Lee and Offie Reese.

Beginning as a gospel family group in Chicago in the fifties, the Kelly Brothers spent most of the sixties recording secular material that is deeply rooted in the call and response of gospel music.

This release shows that the group was equally adept at ballads ("If That Will Hold You", written by Curtis Kelly) as well as all-out r&b stormers ("How Can True Love Be This Way", written by Robert Kelly) with sublime vocals.

from 1966...
