The Soul Corner - The Chi-Lites "Have You Seen Her"

Vocal harmonies played a huge role in soul music. Exhibit A:

And don't you love that wah-wah guitar opening?  This song has more pop hooks than you can count.

If this gets stuck in her head today, and you are not productive at work, tell your boss to try suing the Soul Corner but of course we won't respond. It's an assumed risk of listening to a slow jam like this.

The Chi-Lites were, as you might guess from the name, from Chicago.

"Have You Seen Her", inspired by the doo-wop music of the 1950's, made it all the way to #3 on the Billboard Top 40 charts in 1971. But the Chi-Lites hats and 'fros charted at #1.
