ADY CRAMPTON CHATS TO THE STARS

Marshall Thompson, founding member of The Chi-Lites

February 3, 2021

Originally recording as Marshall & The Chi-Lites, The Chi-Lites became one of the best known groups of the 70s thanks to mega hits such as Have You Seen Her and Oh Girl.

Here Marshall Thompson recounts his life as the driving force behind a group whose records went triple platignum, his pride at their having been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and their new release, Love On A Two Way Street.

Recorded in the nineties, it’s a previously unreleased cover of the Moments’ classic, produced by the legendary George Kerr, which is available now from all streaming sites
