Description

On June 17, 2020, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the City of Los Angeles, announced that the iconic multi-million selling soul/R&B band, THE CHI-LITES, would be honoured in their Class of 2021, by receiving a star on Hollywood Boulevard on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On 30th September 2021, with family friends and other soul legends in attendance, including their legendary label mate, Gene Chandler, Marshall Thompson, co-Founder and last surviving member of THE CHI-LITES, accepted the honour on behalf of the Band. Although they had formed nine years earlier, it was when the Band met record producer Carl Davis in 1968 that they signed a contract with Brunswick Records. They began to achieve commercial recognition and success, with songs predominantly written and composed by band member Eugene Record, who was also their lead singer, although their first charting song, 'Give It Away' (US R&B Chart #10) was co-written by Record, with producer Carl Davis. THE CHI-LITES released more than 15 studio albums and registered on the UK chart on nine occasions, with five Top 10 entries, one of them being the Double-A sided reissue 'Have You Seen Her'/'Oh Girl'. In 1976, THE CHI-LITES switched labels from Brunswick to Mercury and recorded two albums 'Happy Being Lonely' (1976) and 'The Fantastic Chi-Lites' (1977), before teaming-up again with Carl Davis on his own Chi-Sound records label, to record 1980's 'Heavenly Body' and 1981's 'Me And You'. This 12-track vinyl LP set focuses on their Brunswick Records period and includes all of their UK hits, opening with their barn- storming 'Are You My Woman (Tell Me So)', the intro from which, being famously and expertly sampled by Beyonce (and featuring Jay-Z), for her worldwide 2003 hit and Transatlantic #1,'Crazy In Love'.
