The Chi-Lites: Greatest Hits [Brunswick, 1972]
The Delfonics and the Moments may have staked first claim on Eugene Record's love man, but Record demolishes the competition, if such a macho concept is permissible in this context (and it certainly is). Not only does he outwrite the other fellas, he doesn't trip over his bassman when the tempo speeds up or make a fool of himself when analyzing the dilemmas of contemporary civilization. The fifteen-song compilation includes the entire first side (plus one) of Give More Power to the People and may actually be too generous--it is possible to OD on this stuff. But everything you want is here, and what you think you don't want you might.
