Eugene Record is best known as lead singer of The Chi-Lites. He demonstrated skills as a songwriter, arranger and producer for the group and other artists on the Brunswick label in the 60s and 70s In 1977 he moved to Warner Brothers for three albums, the first two of which are presented here. The collection of songs includes what is considered as his best solo work, Overdose Of Joy. It is the defining moment from his time as a solo artist, but the craftsmanship and beauty of the record is further evident on songs across these two albums on other standout moments including Here Comes The Sun and We Belong Together in his melancholic style. He also had chart success in the USA with Laying Beside You, and there's much more here to discover in the event you are not already familiar with everything on these albums. The title song Trying To Get To You is also significant in that beyond this version, Valerie Carter recorded a version the same year and became a song that came to our attention on London's rare groove scene.
