5.0 out of 5 stars Chicago Soul Masterpiece 25 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well worth investing in both, volume 1 and volume 2 of this excellent
Chi Lites compilation series. Volume one, has the added bonus of several very early tracks, that you don't normally find. It is worth
buying the disc, just to get these tracks.

I have always had a soft spot for the Chi Lites. Personally, I found that their material and vocals, were far superior to other groups, such as the Stylistics.

All of the tracks that you need,(Hits and album tracks) are covered by both albums. "The Complete Chi Lites On Brunswick" makes all other Chi Lites compilations redundant. I should know, I have bought
most of them, over the years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete Chi-Lites 11 Jan 2013
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I did not know the Chi-Lites made so many songs! This 2 CD set is just what it says "Complete Chi-Lites on Brunswick Records". They were also on the Mercury record label. The Brunswick collection is Vol 1 with 24 songs on disc one and 17 songs on disc two. It has every hit that I know of from back in the day. The hits are scattered throughout the collection so you can't play them all in a row on disc two but disc one has four hits in row at the end. To sum it up you get the hits and more. This is a good collectors CD. What will they do for Vol 2 ?

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love These Types Of Comps 7 May 2009
By Soul Groove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Its comps like these that allow younger generations (like mine) to hear true RnB music the way it was, and the comps make the music much more accesible. This comp, part one, spans from the first singles in 1968 through the first half of 1973's Letter to Myself (The second half is on Part II. The Chi-Lites are one of my favorite soul groups. Here we have the 1968 singles: "Love Me" is a groovy uptempo Motown style swinger. "Love is Gone" is one of my favorite Chi-Lites songs. Listen to Eugene Records's pain in the song, and the awesome strings and funky subtle guitar riffs. This song reminds me more of the Philly soul style that was about to explode on the scene. "(Um, Um) My Baby Loves Me" is a cool upbeat funky jam to cruise to, and "Price of Love" has a throwback to the early-mid 60's sound with the doo-wop influenced horns, and Motown uptempo style reminiscent of the Four Tops. "Baby it's Time" reminds me of early 60's doo wop with the harmony, but also with the upbeat tempo. That wraps up the 1968 singles. Then we have 1969's Give it Away, a classic album with some rock and psychedelic influences balanced with soft-soul (shows their well-rounded style!!). "What Do I Wish For" has thoise multi-layered strings and sweet guitar riffs. 1970's I Like Your Lovin' (Do You Like Mine?) has a harder edge to it with more rock and psychedelic influences: the title trach is a fun song with that harder-hitting edge, another perfect cruisin jam! I love how the bass and falsettos offset eachother here. 1971's (For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People has the perennial classic ballad "Have You Seen Her," and the uptempo, funky, socially aware title track. Then there is 1972's classic album: A Lonely Man, with the ballad laden title track recalling the magic of "Have You Seen Her," and the other famous groove, "Oh Girl;" this album relies more on soft-soul than uptempo funk of the predecessors. Then the first half of A Letter to Myself ends the comp. Record's falsetto shines really strong on "Someone Else's Arms," and he reaches some high notes on the soft and sad mid tempo joint. I thank Brunswick records for delivering the classics so a younger guy likeme can have access to the music when music was music. Vol 2 is also highly recommended, covering A Letter to Myself (side B), through 1975's Half a Love and 1975-1976 singles to round off the collection.
