    Default a lonely man-the chi-lites

    magnificent is one word that comes to mind even after more than[40]years this album is gold,the chi-lites had hit their prime by[1972]and they wouldn't be denied their place as the new kings of soul,lead singer Eugene record was a master song writer and he proved it on this one...oh girl..the coldest days of my is...even their rendition of[marvin gaye's]inner city blues was a killer and a better version,if they had never made another record their place would've been cemented in soul music history with this great,great album!

    I like that whole Chicago soft soul school but the Chi-lites were the top of the heap. Philly had something similar with the Stylistics.
