The Winstons

A Washington, D.C.-based soul act led by Richard Spencer, the Winstons signed to Curtom in early 1968 and lasted there for one single, the rousing "Need a Replacement." They had a sound that was somewhat similar to the Impressions, but were unfortunate enough to have signed with Curtom before the label had national distribution, and the single never got the play it should have. A year after leaving Curtom, they hit for the Metromedia label with a huge single called "Color Him Father," which became a Top Ten R&B and pop hit, just missing number one on the R&B list, and also earned a Grammy for Best R&B Song. It was both a great tribute number and outstanding lead vocal from Richard Spencer, along with Ray Maritano, Quincy Mattison, Phil Tolotta, Sonny Peckrol, and G.C. Coleman. Mattison and Coleman were veterans of Otis Redding's band. The Winstons eventually toured as the backup band for the Impressions, but never again made any noise on the charts. ~ Ron Wynn & Bruce Eder

The Winstons...m u s i c is in your debt for creating the Amen Break, aka the break that founded all of electronic music and gave hip-hop a favored beat to sample. The Winstons deserve a lifetime acheivement award from pretty much everyone.

This is a great song for all those "Unsung Dads" who society continues to ignore. Keep up the good works .

One of the best, more positive soul songs of all time. Still brings a tear to my eye 30 years later.

Check out "Amen Brother" by The Winstons -- you just might have heard it before... or more likely a sample of the track's signature break. It's the B-side to the 1969 single "Color Him Father."
