Contains 7 of their core best tunes, missing out several others including 'Forbidden Lover'. The other track on this collection, 'Megachic (Chic Medley)' is awful. If you just want a few of their biggest tracks (like Good Times, I Want Your Love, Le Freak, Everybody Dance) for a party or whatever then this may be worth a very cheap purchase.

Why kick off with a cheap Chic on 45 medley when the rest of the songs are so good I don't know. That aside, the other songs are timeless/nostalgic slices of funky goodness. I particularly love the strings on My Feet Keep Dancing but all the other big hits are here, and they all sound good if you're in that mood.

Chic's problem in the UK was their cheerfulness when the country was gripped in recession and decline. the UK's punk and new wave catalogued the era perfectly whereas Chic's jubilant singing of 'Good Times' rang hollow on these shores for many while the 'yowsah, yowsah' chant just took the ridiculous to the sublime.
What a sad injustice for this phenomenally talented band. Whereas many 'greatest hits' CD's feature one or two hits and then a long list of follow ups that sank without trace, Chic's album though only 7 tracks shows how they constantly hit the nail on the head. For a novice bass player like myself there is enough of Mr Edwards phenomenal work on this to keep me firmly in my place whether the fat line from 'Good times' or the finger crazy changes of 'Everybody Dance'. The dancey feel of the choppy guitar from Mr Rodgers perfectly popping in and out alongside the basslines
Perfect seventies disco in all it's forms, from the slow rythmic stomp of 'chic cheer' through the glorious harmonies on 'i want your love' through to probably their biggest and well known hit 'Le freak'. Chic redefined disco in the seventies,appearing as a buisness minded armani clad unit bringing cool funky tunes to the New York streets,and thier work is sampled to death even now over 30 years later. their most sampled piece. The bass line for 'Good Times', was apparentley born on a night when Mr Edwards had been refused entry to the famous Studio 54 and went home to drink champagne. What a shame he wasn't refused entry more often.
So I surmise, at a time when the UK was moaning musically at their political , Chic in the US were taking a much different view of things. 'We want the best...........we won't settle for less!' A fantastic album showcasing all of chic's best work, for fans and new ears alike.
