The Chi-Lites' third album, "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People", showcases the group delving into the social consciousness movement of the early '70s, possibly influenced by contemporaries such as Sly & the Family Stone and fellow Chicagoan Curtis Mayfield. Led by the sweet voice of Eugene Record, the 1971 release reveals a different facet of the band, both lyrically and in terms of production, exemplified in tracks like "We Are Neighbors". Surprisingly, the standout single from the album was "Have You Seen Her?", a soulful ballad that topped the R&B charts. Regarded as the Chi-Lites' finest work, "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People" is making its long-awaited return to vinyl after decades. This 180-gram audiophile-grade vinyl pressing presents the music in its best form, mastered from the original analog tapes.
