5.0 out of 5 stars All the big British and American hits 21 Mar 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Hailing from Chicago, the Chi-Lites took a while to find success but their efforts eventually proved worthwhile. Eugene Record, a singer-songwriter-producer, dominated the group, which achieved an American breakthrough hit with Give it away in 1969 although they did not enter the British charts until 1971, when they had a minor UK hit with For God's sake give more power to the people - a very different record from the soulful ballads that they are best remembered for.
1972 proved to be a big year for the Chi-Lites, yielding Have you seen her (a top three hit in Britain and America) and Oh girl (a number one American hit, though only a top twenty UK hit). Their last major American hit came with Homely girl but (after a slow start) their success in the UK continued until 1976. Homely girl, It's time for love and You don't have to go all made the UK top five, as did a re-issue of Have you seen her (just over three years after its original chart run).
This compilation contains all the important Chi-Lites hits from both sides of the Atlantic.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a shell game ... 7 Jun 2000
By Alice S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a RERECORDING of the music. DO NOT BUY THIS unless you want ridiculous "digitally recorded in 1995" versions of great songs. It sounds absolutely terrible.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Best of The Chi-Lites 29 Dec 1999
By Dennis Yee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To any and all "true" Chi-Lites or Eugene Record fans,
This album containing the phase of greatest hits or best of... in its title should not be used because it is misleading. This album in particular although contain a few solid hits does not do the group justice. This album is only but a sparkle of the real brilliance of what the Chi-Lites have to offer. Please, please, please, consider the "Too Good To Be Forgotten" BOX collaboration as your only option. This BOX collection really and truly defines the superb talents of Eugene Record and the group. There are so many vintage songs that only could be found on LP's, but now can be appreciated again on CD.
Do not sell yourself short.......Get the real deal! You will thank me for it, but more importantly you will THANK YOURSELF for doing the right thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Truly a Chi-Lites Fan 6 April 2000
By "nesgan2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although this album contains some of the gems, the "Too Good To Be Forgotten" box set would be a better deal. A lot of the songs that had the Chi-Lites 'out there' are missing on this album (ex: Toby). Not bad, but, I know there's something better.
