For three decades, the Commodores have remained a force in the music industry. "The Legends of Motown," "The Mighty, Mighty Commodores," "Hit after Hit after Hit," "All The Excitement, All The Emotion." If you haven't seen them live, you haven't seen the Commodores. Just like their hit song "Brick House", the Commodores have created a foundation that just won't budge.
After being discovered by Berry Gordy in 1974, the Commodores went on to sell over 60 million records for Motown. With 26 Top 20 hits like "Machine Gun", "Sail On," "Easy," "Three Times A Lady," the Commodores became proven artists. They proved it then. They proved it again in 1986 with "Night Shift," and now they are ready to move again.
Unlike many other groups, the Commodores haven't rested on their early hits. Quite the contrary, the Commodores have continued to put out quality work. With the creation of their new label, the Commodores released Commodore Hits Vol. I, Commodore Hits Vol. II, Commodores Christmas, Commodores XX-No Tricks, and the latest album "Commodores Live" recorded during the bands '96 US tour. The Commodores believe in their work, but they are not the only ones:
"Seventies phenoms return with a self produced album filled with some great music. The Commodores look set for a fantastic return.... BRE Music Report
"Venerable pop/R&B band issues it's first single in five years engaging vocals woo with warmth and restraint." ... Billboard
The successful Commodores of the present have not only produced five new albums, and embarked upon a world-wide tour, but have created their own record label, Commodores Records and Entertainment. Today the Commodores stand not only as talented and successful musicians, but artists, determined to continue their success into the future.
