Chi-Sound Records was launched in 1976, by US music industry executive and soul producer Carl Davis, and one of the labels first singles, which has endured the test of time and had a 21st Century resurgence by being the theme tune to the UK Broadcaster/Presenter/DJ, Norman Jay MBE, to open his national BBC Radio show.
