The Chi-Lites’ third album, ""(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the
People”, finds the group tapping into the social consciousness movement
of the early ‘70s, presumably influenced by contemporaries like Sly & the
Family Stone and fellow Chicagoan Curtis Mayfield. They had one of
sweetest voices in soul music with Eugene Record, but their 1971 release
showed a different side of the band, both in terms of lyrical content and
production on tracks like ""We Are Neighbors”. Ironically, the biggest single
on the album was ""Have You Seen Her?”, a sweet soul ballad which
topped the R&B charts. ""(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People”
was the best album the Chi-Lites ever released, and it’s finally coming
back to vinyl for the first time in decades. The music sounds better than
ever on this 180gram audiophile-grade vinyl pressing, mastered from
original analog tapes.
