Led by vocalist and legendary songwriter Eugene Record who sadly died in July, The Chi-Lites notched-up an impressive 11 top 10 US R&B chart hits during the 70s that ranged from romantic ballads like the evergreen Have You Seen Her to protest songs like (For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People. Their smooth, string-laden soul proved to have universal appeal too, securing them hits in Europe and here in the UK where they scored an impressive nine UK top 40 hits including five top 5's. Numerous cover versions by a diverse range of artists have insured that since their last UK chart hit in 1976 they remain unforgotten.
