Good Letter
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 12/22/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Chicago's Chi-Lites could easily just between smooth love songs and socially conscious ones. 1973's A Letter To Myself has long been out of print and it makes its debut on cd in this import. The album contains that slow jams like "My Heart Just Keeps On Breaking", "You Smiled The Same Old Way" and "Someone Else's Arms" and the ones that make you think like "We Need Order" and the superb title track. They are probably best known for their two big hits "Oh Girl" and "Have You Seen Her", but check out this great album and soak in one of the Windy City's top soul groups."

"With "A Letter To Myself" Eugene Record lead vocalist and main songwriter slowly steered the group away from strict r&B into country,"My Heart Just keeps on Breakin" Deeper into social protest, "We Need Order" "We're caught up, in a knowledge of war,
something must of us have never seen. But how sweet it would be,
to wake in the morning, and find it was all a dream."
The LP came out in the Summer of 1973; The war in Vietnam officially ended in the fall of 1975.
This was the last Album of all new meterial for the Chi-lites
on the Brunnswwick label subsequent albums featured previosly
released tracks until the labels demise in 1976. The idea of
"A Letter To Myself"was itself a throwback to the classic
olddie "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter"
not in substance, but the same thought, of writing a letter
that was never intended to be received.
This review is based on the original LP."
