The Chic Organization boxset would come as somewhat of a surprise since the boxset treatment are typically reserved for legendary recording artists who are household names ( James Brown, The Temptations, Bee Gees, and Rod Stewart- just to name a few). Looking at Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards output, it would seem like their output is not deep enough to warrant a box set spanning four CD's - since one would assume that their songs under the Chic umbrella and a few for Sister Sledge represents their total output as producers and songwriters. Little do many people know, Nile and Nard was quietly expanding their musical reputation by extending their patented grooves to a number of artists outside of their successful run with Chic. While Nile and Nard influence may not be as widely regarded here in the States, their influence is massive overseas as proven by this boxset being packaged and released under Warner's branch in France.

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.

I am a long-time fan of the Chic Organisation, but bought this set with some trepidation due to the comments made in some reviews about the sound quality. Turns out there was no need to worry on that score: the tracks have never sounded better. (A subtle but signficant improvement on the very good sound presented on the Rhino 'Definitive Groove' set). Highlights for me: the 12" version of 'My Forbidden Lover' which I had never heard before - and this is a very good remix rather than just an extended version- , the Fonzi Thornton tracks which again I didn't know before, a beautifully mastered version of 'Spacer' and the Dimitri from Paris remix of Sister Sledge's 'Thinking of You', the only one of the Dimitri remixes which in my opinion improves on the original.

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 ....

I've been a fan of Chic since their first hit "Dance Dance Dance" in 1977. I was so looking forward to the release of this box set as Chic have been so neglected for years. it's wonderful to hear previously unreleased material like the tracks from the shelved Johnny Mathis album and a couple of tracks from the Fonzi Thornton album that never was. There are some pretty good remixes too by Dimitri From Paris. However, I was so disappointed with the sound quality which I find too harsh and tinny. Looking at the waveform it's clear that a lot of the tracks are badly clipped (distortion) I wish that Giovanni who did the remastering on the Chic/Sister Sledge compilation "Good Times" from 2005 had worked on this, but this is Rhino and they're not too good at remastering in my experience.
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.
