Negron was born on June 8, 1942, in Manhattan. He grew up in The Bronx, where he sang in local doo-wop groups and played basketball both in schoolyard pick up games and at William Howard Taft High School. The latter talent let to his being recruited to play basketball at Allan Hancock College, in Santa Maria, California; later, he played at California State College in Los Angeles. 

In 1967, singer Danny Hutton invited Negron to join him and Cory Wells to  found the band Three Dog Night. That group became one of the most successful bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s, selling approximately 60 million records and earning gold records for such songs as "One", "Easy to be Hard", and "Joy to the World".

That lifestyle took its toll on Negron, and by the time Three Dog Night disbanded in 1976, Negron had a serious heroin addiction and was reported to have been arrested for cocaine possession in Kentucky in 1975. Chuck Negron overcame his addiction in 1991 and embarked on a very good solo career. 

This CD is in excellent condition.
