John Brothers - I just wanna be free 1980


I don’t know many info about “The John Brothers”. In 1979 Keith and Kevin sang for “Instant Funk” a funky track entitled “Witch Doctor”.


In 1980 they participated on the album of Bunny Sigler as “Assistant producers”.



At the same time the John Brothers released a single entitled “Try to walk a mile / I just wanna be free” on RCA label in 1980. Produced by Bunny Sigler. The former was writen by Jimmy Singler and the latter by Bunny Sigler .



Note: The John Brothers (Keith and Kevin) are the sons of the Late, Great, Little Willie John.
Keith John is a fantastic singer in his own right and has been traveling and touring with Stevie Wonder for more than twenty years.
Thanks for info (Kajun58)

I Just Wanna Be Free is a hard to find single.

Listen to the a side: "Try To Walk A Mile In My Shoes"
