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 the sweetest voices in soul music with Eugene Record, but their 1971 release showed a different side of the band, both 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 that 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 back on vinyl for the first time in decades, remastered from original Brunswick Records tapes.

This Indie Exclusive is pressed on green swirl color vinyl, limited to 300 copies, and only available at independent record stores. Available starting June 25th.
