The Chi-Lites were a Chicago based group as you might have guess from their group name. They initially formed in the late 1950 but didn’t really hit the big time until the early to mid-1970 where they were pure gold for Brunswick Records. Have You Seen Her started their run of hits in late 1971 and here is a great performance of it from the wonderful Soul Train show…….
Have you seen her was quickly followed up by their number one hit single Oh Girl. I personally think the lead vocal on this song is one of the best ever! Let me know what you think…..
Yes….I know that Paul Young did a successful cover of this song and that many of you may be more familiar with that cover version than you are with the original. As a bonus, here is Paul’s cover version.
Now that you have listened to both versions, I am betting that you will agree with me that while Paul does a nice job his version……it is not match for the original!
