37 tracks of Chic at their very best. Buy it!
on 12 October 2011
Most of the tracks here are single versions but this does not in anyway take away from the magic of this sizzling double CD collection. It features superior dance tracks and intimate ballads that have successfully retained their excitement more than 30 years after they were produced. Listen carefully and you'll hear the velvet tones of Luther Vandross and Norma Jean (Wright) - oh, be sure to pick up her excellent expanded CD too, it's got Chic all over it. A Warm Summer Night is one of my all-time Chic ballads and that's here, as well as the welcome inclusion of the edited instrumental of the Chic-produced Carly Simon hit, Why.
I've only owned this awesome collection for a few hours now but can honestly say that it has already won a special place in my pretty vast collection; magnifique Chic, indeed! Order your copy today and remind yourself what good music is supposed to sound like. You'll find a well written booklet inside too, just to round things off. Lastly, and most importantly, to Bernard Edwards and Nile Rogers, the men behind the music, thank you!
