Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose was a family soul singing group from Dania Beach, Florida that attained brief popularity in the early 1970s. The original members were the siblings Carter Cornelius, Eddie Cornelius, and Rose Cornelius. Their sister, Billie Jo Cornelius, was added later.The group hit the pop charts in 1971, with the single "Treat Her Like a Lady" (US R&B Top 20, Billboard Hot 100 #3) and hit again in 1972 with "Too Late to Turn Back Now" (US R&B #5, Hot 100 #2) both written by Eddie Cornelius.However, the group failed to find any further success on the scale of their first two singles, although two releases, "Don't Ever Be Lonely" and "I'm Never Gonna Be Alone Anymore" reached the Billboard top 40. Their final charting single was "Since I Found My Baby" in 1974, from their third and last album. Their records were all produced by Bob Archibald at The Music Factory in Miami.The group broke up in 1976 when Carter joined a black Hebrew sect in Miami and adopted the name Prince Gideon Israel. He wrote, recorded and mixed the sect's music and videos for the next 15 years. He was working on a comeback song to return to the pop field when he died of a heart attack in November 1991.Eddie Cornelius became a born-again Christian and later an ordained pastor. He still continues to sing, produce and write music that reflects his faith in God.1972\1. Too Late To Turn Back Now2. I'm So Glad (To Be Loved By You)3. Let Me Down Easy4.

hey, thanks a lot for this one. it's great.
Thank you so much. This was a very underrated group. It's a shame their popularity waned so quickly. They had a unique sound.
was lookin for this for a while but no more.....Thx
What the password to this album?In my oppinion Cornelius Brothers is the best black music group of the century. Of course there's a lot of others great black music stars as Chi-lites, Manhattans, Stylistics, Blue Magic...many others, but Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose is the landscape (photografy) of my childhood's place. I remember all the time when I was young, and Cornelius Brothers really got to the top hits parade in BRAZIL for a long, long time. I got the two albuns of them called Cornelius Brothers I and the Big Time Lover II albums but I need these it again to download.Thank you all for help!
great album and info thanks
Thanks Dr. I love this album
Great album, thank you
