The Brothers Johnson--I'll Be Good to You" (1976)

     Happy 58th Birthday to George Johnson of The Brothers Johnson....

     George and Louis Johnson had been in bands backing The Supremes,  Bobby Womack, then full time members of Billy Preston's band. After joining Quincy Jones in the studio and then a tour of Japan, he produced, "Look Out for No.1" in 1976. The first single, "I'll be Good to You" topped out at #3 which was the first of three top 10 hits. They did even better on the R&B charts topping out at #1. In 1990, the song reached No. 1 on the R&B charts again as Chaka Khan & Ray Charles sang on Quincy Jones' album, "Back on the Block"
