Some artists had a long wait before they got their turn in the spotlight.

The Chi-Lites

Originally formed in 1959 as the Hi-Lites the group toiled through the sixties releasing 8 singles between 1964-1968, all of which failed to chart. In 1969 “Give It Away” entered the Billboard chart at a lowly 88 and didn’t rise to a higher position. A further nine singles were released between 1969 and 1971,none reaching the top 20, until “Have You Seen Her” became a world wide smash, reaching number three in the U.S., a full 12 years after their first performances.
