EUGENE RECORD (1940 - 2005)

Songwriter, producer, all-around instrumentalist and frequent lead vocalist of the Chi-Lites, one of the greatest soul groups ever to come out of Chicago.

Eugene Record of the Chi-Lites has died after a battle with cancer. He was 64. The group, named after their hometown, Chicago, was one of the greatest ever to come out of that city. They exploded on the soul scene in 1969, at the beginning of the vocal/dance group renaissance. It was an era when ensembles like the Delfonics and the Stylistics, as well as the Chi-Lites, achieved great crossover popularity and significantly shaped the popular music of the era with a kind of soul that emphasised high-tenor leads. Eugene Record was the group's creative force.

With smooth, yearning vocals and streamlined arrangements, the Chi-Lites mingled sentimental street-corner doo-wop with the sounds of Motown and funk to create a sleek new soul style in the early '70s. "Oh Girl" became a No. 1 hit in 1972 and 11 of the group's songs reached the Top 20 on the R&B charts from 1969 to 1974. Record sang in a velvety, melancholic tenor, and sometimes in a euphoric falsetto, as on "Stoned Out Of My Mind", which he wrote with his former wife and songwriting partner, Barbara Acklin. Another device he favoured was the pensive spoken verse, which he used in "Have You Seen Her?" and "A Letter To Myself". In addition to his many collaborations with Acklin, he also wrote and/or produced material for Betty Everett, Otis Leavill, Young-Holt, the Impressions, the Dells, Gene Chandler and others.

The Chi-Lites' biggest hits have remained radio staples for decades, and the group's songs have frequently been covered by other performers. In 1990 MC Hammer recorded a popular version of "Have You Seen Her?" and in 2003 Beyoncé Knowles' "Crazy In Love", a blockbuster hit, sampled the horn fanfare in "Are You My Woman? (Tell Me So)", a Chi-Lites song written by Record. When "Crazy In Love" won a Grammy Award for best R&B song, the prize was shared by Record; Knowles; her producer, Rich Harrison; and Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z, who contributed a rap. "It brought us back into view," said Marshall Thompson of the Chi-Lites, who remained friendly with Record even after the original line-up split in 1976.

As a student at Englewood High School in the 1950s, Eugene Record played with the Chaunteurs, a group that included Robert "Squirrel" Lester and Clarence Johnson. The three men later formed the Hi-Lites with Thompson and Creadel "Red" Jones. By the mid-'60s, Johnson left the group, and they changed their name to the Chi-Lites. Their big break came when Thompson happened to run into singer and producer Otis Leavill on a city bus. Leavill suggested they audition for producer Carl Davis. That, in turn, led to a contract with Brunswick Records in 1968. The group tasted its first success that year with the song "Give It Away", which reached No. 10 on the R&B charts. But it was a string of hits in the early '70s that established their reputation. In addition to breezy and romantic ballads, the Chi-Lites had a handful of stern political songs, including "(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People" and "There Will Never Be Any Peace (Until God Is Seated At The Conference Table)", both written by Record.

Record left the Chi-Lites in 1976 and released three solo albums on Warner Brothers. He rejoined the group in 1980, and they had two more minor hits on Chi-Sound, "Hot On A Thing (Called Love)" and "Bottom's Up". He left again in the late '80s and became a born-again Christian and gospel singer. In 1998, he released a gospel album, "Let Him In". He had planned to remix and re-release it, said his wife of 31 years, Jacki, but he fell ill before he could realise his plans. Jacki Record said her husband's attraction to Christianity in his later years wasn't a response to any one event but rather a spiritual journey Record had been undertaking for some time. Even so, he still got a kick out of seeing young black pop stars using his classic material in their own songs - a sign that his life's work was still relevant.

The Chi-Lites have continued in various permutations since the mid-'80s, and Record performed with them in Only The Strong Survive, a 2002 documentary directed by Chris Hegedus and D. A. Pennebaker. He is also an integral part of a retrospective DVD the group plans to release shortly. Disc jockey Herb Kent, who has followed the Chi-Lites since their beginnings, said Record had "God's gift" of musical ability. "He played guitar, he wrote and he sang lead on most of the hit songs of the Chi-Lites," he said. "I think his legacy was being a fantastic lead singer in a group out of Chicago that just smacked of Chicago and sweet love music . . . sweet, haunting love music that we'll probably never see the likes of again."

He is survived by his wife, Robi; children, Michael, Russ, Jordan and Pari; and grandchildren Max, Hunter and Cainen.

Musical artist

Eugene Booker Record (December 23, 1940 – July 22, 2005)[1] was an American singer, songwriter, arranger and record producer. He was best known as the lead vocalist of the Chicago-based vocal groupThe Chi-Lites from their formation in 1959 until 1973 and again from 1980 to 1988. Record wrote and produced many of the group's hits in the 1970s on Brunswick Records, as well as writing and producing for other acts. He had international hits with: "Oh Girl," "Have You Seen Her," "Soulful Strut," and "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People".


Born in Chicago, Illinois, United States,[1] to Booker and Bernice Record,[2][3] Record was drawn to music through his older sister's involvement as a pianist. He learned to play the guitar and formed his first group while at high school with Robert Lester, who stayed on when they joined up with two members of another local group to form The Hi-Lites and eventually changing the name to The Chi-Lites. After a few unsuccessful singles, the group was signed by Brunswick Records production chief in Chicago, Carl Davis.

Record wrote or co-wrote (often with singer Barbara Acklin) a long series of hits for the group, including million-sellers "Have You Seen Her" and "Oh Girl", as well as major hits, such as "Homely Girl" and "Give More Power To The People". He also wrote and produced for other artists, mostly on Brunswick, including Acklin, Jackie Wilson, The Lost Generation, Otis Leavill, and later, The Dells and The Impressions.

When Brunswick began to falter due to legal and financial issues in the mid-1970s, Record decided to go solo and released three albums (entitled The Eugene Record, Trying to Get to You, and Welcome to My Fantasy) in the late 1970s on Warner Music Group without major success, before re-joining The Chi-Lites in 1980. As well as returning to sing with the group, he teamed up again with Carl Davis, formerly his mentor at Brunswick, to produce and take on executive duties for Davis' Chi-Sound Records label.

Record stayed with The Chi-Lites until the mid-1980s for several albums on various labels before leaving again. Becoming a born-again Christian, he produced a gospel album on his own Evergreen label. He also continued to make occasional guest appearances with the group.

In 1978, he appeared on Saturday Night Live with Michael Palin. He performed "Have You Seen Her" and "Trying to Get to You". In 1979 he recorded his only track which ventured onto the disco scene called, "Magnetism". The record was released on 12" single and, despite being played regularly in local clubs, did not become a hit.[4] His 1977 track entitled "Overdose of Joy" has had a resurgence of interest.

Personal life[edit]

Eugene Record was married twice. He first married his high school sweetheart, Sandra Scott, about whom the hit, Have You Seen Her, was written.[3] He later married his second wife, Jacqueline. Record has been erroneously reported to have married Barbara Acklin. They were never married.[3]

Record died on July 22, 2005, from cancer. The place of his death was not announced.

Discography (1980-1985)[edit]

Record had several hits after rejoining the Chi-Lites in the early 1980s. With Linda F. Williams, writing under the name L. F. Butler and L. Frances Butler[5] had three releases by The Chi-Lites:

Discography (2000-2005)[edit]

He is a co-writer of the 2003 Beyoncé hit record "Crazy in Love", thanks to its sampling of The Chi-Lites' "Are You My Woman (Tell Me So)". His writing contribution earned him a Grammy Award.

He died on July 22, 2005, in Chicago, after a long battle with cancer.[1][11] He was 64.

Obituary: Barbara Acklin

"HAVE YOU Seen Her", a melancholic, haunting ballad by the Chi- Lites, is amongst the best soul records of all time. Eugene Record's switch from wistful narration to soaring falsetto is perfect as he recounts how he took love for granted: "With all the people I know, I'm still a lonely man." The song was written by Record and another soul singer, Barbara Acklin.

Acklin was born into a musical family in Chicago in 1944. Her grandmother was the blues singer Asa Eskridge, and her cousin the arranger and keyboard player Monk Higgins, although neither performer is known in the UK. Her parents encouraged her to sing and she was a soloist by the age of 11 in the choir of the New Zion Baptist Church. A few years later, she was working clubs on the South Side of Chicago.

After graduation, Barbara worked as a secretary for St Lawrence Records and sang background vocals for their productions. Her first single, produced by Monk Higgins, was under the pseudonym of Barbara Allen. Moving to the legendary Chess label, also in Chicago, she sang background vocals for such soul stalwarts as Etta James, Minnie Riperton, Fontella Bass and Koko Taylor.

In 1966 Acklin was working as a receptionist in Chicago for Brunswick Records. She submitted demonstration records of her own compositions to the label's main producer, Carl Davis. He liked a song that she had written with David Scott of the Five Dutones called "Whispers (Gettin' Louder)". Jackie Wilson, whose long run of US successes had ended, recorded the song and it restored him to the US Top Twenty after a three-year absence. Surprisingly, the record was not a UK hit, although it has now become a dance-floor favourite.

Jackie Wilson was so grateful that he told Acklin, "Let me know if there is anything I can do for you." She replied, "Tell Carl Davis to give me a recording contract." And that's what happened. Her first two singles for Brunswick flopped, but then a duet with Gene Chandler of "Duke of Earl" fame, "Show Me the Way To Go", made the Rhythm & Blues chart.

Acklin started writing with another Brunswick artist, Eugene Record, and they wrote a US Top Forty hit for Peaches and Herb, "Two Little Kids" (1968). Record also produced Acklin's version of "Love Makes a Woman". This catchy single with its brassy arrangement became a US Top Twenty hit. It was nominated for a Grammy but lost to Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools".

"Love Makes a Woman" was followed by "Just Ain't No Love" and a further duet with Chandler, "From the Teacher to the Preacher" (both 1968). Love Makes a Woman (1968) and Seven Days of Night (1969) are highly rated soul albums, and they have recently been combined on one CD for a UK release.

Her excellent single of "Am I the Same Girl" (1968) was also produced by Eugene Record. Dusty Springfield covered the song and took it into the UK Top Fifty, but its fate in America is much more intriguing. The musicians on Acklin's version included Eldee Young (bass) and Isaac Holt (drums). Brunswick were so taken by the backing track that they released it separately and it made No 3 in America under the name of "Soulful Strut" by Young- Holt Unlimited.

Acklin released further albums for Brunswick, namely, Someone Else's Arms (1970), I Did It (1971) and I Call It Trouble (1973). One of her most amusing songs was "I'll Bake Me a Man (1973)".

Eugene Record was impressed by Isaac Hayes's 1969 album, Hot Buttered Soul, which is arguably the first rap record as Hayes prefaces his songs with extended monologues. Record and his group, the Chi-Lites, recorded a five-minute ballad, "Have You Seen Her", in a similar groove but it was only released on an LP. Radio stations picked up on the song's unusual vibes and when Brunswick realised that a cover version by Frankie and the Spindles might take the sales, they released the Chi-Lites' original as a single. The Chi-Lites' "Have You Seen Her" was a US No 3 in 1971 and it has made the UK Top Ten twice in 1972 and 1975.

By now, Record and Acklin were married and they wrote together for the Chi-Lites including "Stoned Out of My Mind" (1973, with its memorable line "I was a back-seat driver in the car of love") and "Toby" (1974). However, Eugene Record longed for a solo career and, since that time, he has oscillated between solo performances and rejoining the Chi-Lites. The Chi-Lites amounted to little without him, but, by then, the Stylistics had become the champions of sweet soul music.

Acklin moved to Capitol Records in 1974 but her singles "Raindrops" and "Special Loving" met with no success. She recorded an album, A Place in the Sun, before the label dropped her in 1975. She joined her husband's own label, Chi-Sound, in 1980, and recorded further tracks with Gene Chandler. Barbara Acklin had hardly recorded under her own name since that time, although she did contribute backing vocals to the album The Gospel Truth (1993) by another soul singer based in Chicago, Otis Clay. She worked on the road as a backing singer for Tyrone Davis and as a manager for Holly Maxwell, Ike Turner's replacement for Tina.

In 1982 the Jam recorded "Stoned Out of My Mind" and an updated version of "Have You Seen Her" was a 1990 Top Ten hit for the rapper MC Hammer. In 1992 "Am I the Same Girl" was a Top Thirty UK hit for Swing Out Sister.

Barbara Acklin was a fine singer and performer and, despite her success, she could have, and should have, achieved more. She had warmth, range and passion in her voice, and with the right promotion and more application, she could have rivalled the soul diva Dionne Warwicke.

Barbara Jean Acklin (February 28, 1943 – November 27, 1998)[1][2][3] was an American soul singer and songwriter, who was most successful in the 1960s and 1970s. Her biggest hit as a singer was "Love Makes a Woman" (1968). As a songwriter, she is best known for co-writing the multi-million-selling "Have You Seen Her" (1971) with Eugene Record, lead singer of the Chi-Lites.

Life and career[edit]

Acklin was born in Oakland, California and moved with her family to Chicago, Illinois in 1948. She was encouraged to sing as a child; by the age of 11, she sang regularly as a soloist at the New Zion Baptist Church and as a teenager started singing at nightclubs in Chicago. After graduating from Dunbar Vocational High School she worked as a secretary at St. Lawrence Records. Her first record was released on the subsidiary Special Agent label, under the pseudonym Barbara Allen, and was produced by her cousin, producer, and saxophonist Monk Higgins. She also worked as a backing singer at Chess Records on recordings by Fontella Bass, Etta James, Koko Taylor, and others produced by Higgins.[4][5]

In 1966, she started working as a receptionist at Brunswick Records' Chicago office, where she submitted demo recordings of some of her own songs to producer Carl Davis. One of her songs, "Whispers (Gettin' Louder)", which she had co-written with David Scott, formerly of The Five Du-Tones, was recorded by Jackie Wilson and became his biggest hit for three years, reaching no. 5 on the BillboardR&B chart and no. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Wilson then helped secure her a recording contract with Brunswick. Her first two singles for the label were unsuccessful but her third, "Show Me the Way To Go", a duet with Gene Chandler, made the R&B chart. She began writing songs with another Brunswick recording artist, Eugene Record, lead singer of the Chi-Lites; some but not all sources state that they were later married. They co-wrote the Peaches and Herb hit "Two Little Kids", before Record and Davis co-wrote and produced Acklin's first and biggest solo hit, "Love Makes a Woman"; the other co-writers were arranger Sonny Sanders and guitarist Gerald Sims. The single reached no. 3 on the R&B chart and no. 15 on the US pop chart in July 1968, and won a BMI award.[4][5]

Acklin continued to have a series of hits on Brunswick over the next four years, including "From the Teacher to the Preacher", another duet with Chandler, and solo hits "Just Ain't No Love" and "Am I the Same Girl", produced by Record. The instrumentalbacking track of "Am I the Same Girl", with piano replacing Acklin's vocal, became a bigger hit when released as "Soulful Strut" by Young-Holt Unlimited. "Am I the Same Girl" was successfully covered by Swing Out Sister in 1992,[6] and in the UK by Dusty Springfield (UK no. 43, 1969).[7] Acklin also released several albums on the Brunswick label: Love Makes a Woman (1968), Seven Days of Night (1969), Someone Else's Arms (1970), I Did It (1971), and I Call It Trouble (1973).[4][5]

At the same time, she continued her successful writing partnership with Eugene Record. Impressed by the monologues on Isaac Hayes' album Hot Buttered Soul (1969), Record and Acklin wrote "Have You Seen Her", which was originally an album track on the Chi-Lites' album (For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People (1971) before being released as a single. It reached no. 1 on the R&B chart and no. 3 on the US pop chart, and twice made the UK top ten (no. 3 in 1972 and no. 5 in 1975). In 1990, the song became a top ten hit again, when recorded by MC Hammer. Record and Acklin co-wrote several other successful songs for the Chi-Lites, including "Stoned Out of My Mind" (R&B no. 2, 1973), "Toby" (R&B no. 7, 1974), and "Too Good To Be Forgotten" (UK no. 10, 1975).[4][5]

In 1974, Acklin moved to Capitol Records.[8] Her first single for the label, "Raindrops", was co-written by Acklin and produced by former Brunswick producer, Willie Henderson. It became her biggest hit on the R&B chart for six years (no. 14), and she released an album, A Place in the Sun (1975).[8] However, later recordings met with less success and she was dropped by the label in 1975.[8]

She continued to tour as a solo artist and as a backing singer for the Chi-Lites, Tyrone Davis, and other acts. In 1980, she made some recordings for Carl Davis' Chi-Sound label and contributed backing vocals to Otis Clay's album The Gospel Truth (1993).[4] Acklin later lived in Omaha, Nebraska.[citation needed]


She had begun recording a new album in 1998, when she fell ill and died from pneumonia at the age of 55. She was survived by her son, Marcus White, her daughter, Samotta Acklin, and her godson, Elliot Myrick.[5]
