The Chi-Lites – Heavenly Body / Me And You CD (Expansion)
Out of stock
1. Heavenly Body
The Chi-Lites had their biggest hits in the 70s but continue as an entity through to this day. Group members have changed frequently during their history and for these two albums in 1980 and 81 the group consisted Marshall Thompson, Eugene Record, Robert Lester, Marshall Thompson, and Creadel Jones.
Marshall, who still leads the group today, told me “When we signed to the Carl Davis imprint Chi-Sound at 20th Century in 1980 it felt like a happy re-union. It was Carl I auditioned for at Brunswick before bringing in the group and it was because Eugene was out of his deal at Warner Brothers we could all be together again at this time”.
On “Heavenly Body” the group revisited one of their biggest Brunswick classics, “Have You Seen Her”. Both album boast some of the finest musicians of the day fantastic full bodied productions swimming in strings and horns. We include here the rare 12” mix of “Try My Side Of Love” and showcase some luxury soul in a variety of flavours and tempos all delivered by one of the finest ever vocal harmony groups to exist.
The group still perform extensively through to this day and are about to embark on a series of dates in the UK. Marshall believes these two albums are among the finest they ever made and have not been available on CD. – Expansion
