The Sylvers III is the third album by the Los Angeles, California-based R&B group the Sylvers. Released in 1974, it was produced by Perry Botkin, Jr. and Michael Viner. This was their last recording on MGM before they went to Capitol Records.
The album is notable for having few songwriting credits from primary songwriter Leon Sylvers III. Instead, most of the writing is handled by Sharon Sylvers, group member James Sylvers and the Sylvers family matriarch Shirley Sylvers, who wrote three songs: "Don't Give Up the Good Life", "What's It All About" and "TCB".
The album released only one single: "Don't Give Up the Good Life".
