One of the best Chicago soul outfits, the Chi-Lites recorded dozens of excellent songs during their brief early-'70s prime with Brunswick. The Best of the Chi-Lites: Ten Best Series unfortunately finds room for only ten tracks, though two of those are their biggest hits, "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People" and "Oh Girl." Rounding out the collection are "Have You Seen Her?" and "Give It Away," but the long list of missing-in-action titles -- "We Are Neighbors," "Are You My Woman? (Tell Me So)," and "24 Hours of Sadness" form a mere tip of the iceberg -- makes this EMI-Capitol Special Markets collection one of the lesser entries in the group's discography.
