THE CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD Give Me Just A Little More Time - Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales (Invictus, 1971)

"Give Me Just a Little More Time" is the debut single for Chairmen of the Board, released on Holland-Dozier-Holland's Invictus Records label. The song was written and produced by Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland.

Because of then still pending lawsuit against Holland-Dozier-Holland from their former employers, Motown Records, the trio credited themselves with the pseudonym "Ron Dunbar & Edyth Wayne" for this song and many other early Invictus/Hot Wax releases. "Give Me Just a Little More Time" features Chairmen of the Board lead singer General Johnson as the narrator, begging a lover who rejected him to reconsider and give him "just a little more time".

The song was very similar to a Motown recording in more ways than one. Not only was it written and produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland, but the instrumental track was performed by members of The Funk Brothers, Motown's in-house band. Wikipedia
