Rodgers, his musical co-hort Bernard Edwards and the group he founded Chic, recorded eight albums, and became one of the most sampled bands in the world. The bass line from "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang comes from Chic's "Good Times", "Lady" by Modjo comes from "Soup For One", Notorious BIG sampled "I'm Coming Out", Will Smith rearranged "He's The Greatest Dance" by Sister Sledge. In addition, many artists were heavily influenced by Bernard Edwards' bassline in "Good Times", such as Queen with "Another One Bites The Dust".

Given the depth and breadth of this boxset, the international dance scene is keen on the material Nile and Nard produced outside of their most familiar hits. While everyone will be familiar with the original Chic and Sister Sledge tracks; it's the rare mixes, unreleased material, and alternate mixes that makes this boxset a must have for any casual or hardcore Chic Fans. Since Nile and Nard initially established their musical reputation under the Chic banner, it's not surprising that half of the songs on this boxset consist of their songs. The Chic song selection can actually be just as feasible as any of their double and single disc anthologies since you get the bare essentials as well as alternate and 12" inch versions of some of their songs.Read more ›
So glad I bought this set - and annoyed I took so long to do it! Given Chic's importance and popularity it seems strange that there haven't been definitive, expanded versions of the original albums with single versions, remixes etc. Here's hoping ....
It pains me as a fan to criticize this box set, but I have to be honest. i had to remaster the remaster using an audio software tool to make it listenable. I'm sure most people won't be bothered at all about the sound quality, but for 2010 I don't feel this is good enough. I love these songs and I would like to hear a nice clean sound and bass and drums!
I would give the music five stars and the remaster 0 stars! It could've been so much better.
