Biography

Brighter Side of Darkness was a short-lived American R&B/soul group from Chicago, Illinois. Their lead singer was 12-year-old Darryl Lamont; the other members were Ralph Eskridge, Randolph Murph and Larry Washington. They formed in 1972 and released the single "Love Jones" that December; it was a major hit in the U.S. (Hot 100, #17; Hot Soul Singles, #3) and was certified gold by February 9, 1973 by the R.I.A.A. They released an album the next year, but their second single, "I Owe You Love", was less successful, and the group disbanded in 1974.

"Love Jones" was parodied as "Basketball Jones" by Cheech and Chong in 1973.
