Roy Carr in Harlem sees the Chi-Lites
Roy Carr, New Musical Express, 5 February 1972
IT HAS TAKEN the Chi-Lites ten years to become an overnight success. A decade of dues playing on the Chitlin' circuit which helped justify their position as top-of-the-bill attraction at the esteemed pulpit of soul, the Apollo Theatre deep in the heart of New York's black ghetto — Harlem. And it was in that theatre's Number One dressing room that I encountered Eugene Record, Marshall Thompson, Robert "Squirrel" Lester and Creadel "Red" Jones last Saturday night.
