WHICH DIRECTION TO THE INTERGALACTIC DANCE-FLOOR?

My, oh, my! The previous reviewer, who I've found out runs an UNOFFICIAL fan-site, appears to have an axe to grind. Not one positive comment; just barbed comments which isn't really fair.

I'm sure there's a place for a much bigger, more expensive fan-based release but this is an inexpensive, well-packaged, best-of collection and ticks all the right boxes and is obviously not aimed at the core fans.

Where to begin? CD 1. This disc features most of Chic's hits in their radio edit format, as highlighted in the preious review. Short, sharp, punchy and radio friendly. You can see how Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards dragged 'disco' along by the scruff of it's neck and made it credible and stylish, with great musicianship. It really is hit after hit with short gaps between the tracks for extra impact, cleverly slipping in tracks from their '92 'comeback' album, as well as tracks familiar to today's generation because they have… Read more
