THE CHI-LITES - ARE YOU MY WOMAN?

If you've been following this blog for a while, it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of the Chicago soul sound (Gene Chandler, Barbara Acklin, Curtis Mayfield, producer Carl Davis etc). The Chi-Lites were really the last gasp, and their early 70's records are soul classics of the highest order. This jam had its massive horn riff recently sampled by jay Z/ beyonce ("Crazy In Love"); no surprise; that song was propelled into a modern day dance classic because its use of the sample!

from 1970...
