Listen to Chocolate Milk and other great artists on exclusive Spotify playlists.
A New Orleans funk and soul ensemble who enjoyed moderate success in the mid-'70s, Chocolate Milk recorded for RCA from 1975 to 1983.
Their roster included lead vocalist Frank Richard, saxophonist Amandee Castenell, trumpeter Joe Foxx, keyboardist Robert Dabon, guitarist Mario Tio, and drummer Dwight Richards. Their best songs were up-tempo and/or light dance/novelty numbers such as "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" in 1975, "Girl Callin" in 1978, and "Blue Jeans" in 1981. All were Top 20 R&B hits; they also tried ballads and heartache tunes, but Richard wasn't as confident or effective on those. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi
