Formed in 1971, this group scored multiple hits such as "Three Times a Lady," (released when Lionel Richie was frontman,) and "Nightshift." 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 Commodores Hits Vol. I, Commodores Hits Vol. II, Commodores Christmas, and Commodores XX - No Tricks. The successful Commodores of the present have not only produced new albums and embarked upon a world-wide tour, but have created their own record label, Commodores Records & Entertainment. Today the Commodores stand not only as talented and successful musicians, but as artists determined to continue their success into the future.
