Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Chic's third album finds the band working at full power on "Good Times," a disco anthem with touches of wistfulness and a hint of mortality. As always, the rhythm section's interplay is tight and inventive, while songs such as "My Forbidden Lover" and "Can't Stand to Love You" further stretch the perimeters of the Chic style and its emotional possibilities. --Rickey Wright

To listen to Chic is to experience MAGIC, quite frankly. Just check out the evidence:-

Exhibit A - "Good Times" - An iconic tune that needs no introduction. Marvel to the outrageously funky bouncing bassline and seductive guitar licks. The best album opener of all time? Quite possibly.

Exhibit B - "Warm Summer Night" - Featuring a sultry whispered vocal and delicate orchestration. Delightful.

Exhibit C - "My Feet Keep Dancing" - This one's a winner, with it's swirling electric piano motif and audacious TAP-DANCING solo!

Exhibit D - "My Forbidden Lover" - A melancholy disco classic that is every bit the equal of Sister Sledge's mellifluous masterpiece "Thinking of You". The chord sequence on this one is unsurpassable.

Exhibit E - "Can't Stand to Love You" - This features a highly infectious choppy guitar line from SIX STRING SCIENTIST Nile Rogers.

Exhibit F - "Will You Cry(When You Hear This Song)" - A ballad so beautiful that the answer to the song's questioning title could only be a resounding: "YES".

Exhibit G - "What About Me" - A sublime closing track that glides along on sweeping strings, tremoring guitar and a delicious piano groove.

And so...THE VERDICT?

Chic - You have been found guilty of creating bafflingly wonderful music. Music that effortlessly spreads joy amongst its listeners. Music that makes your feet move and your heart groove. You have been found guilty of being uniformly excellent with a universal appeal!

You are hereby sentenced to spend the rest of your days being tagged as "The Beatles of Disco". Yes, you really are THAT GOOD!

Court dismissed.

Possibly the very finest rhythm section ever assembled (Nile Rogers (guitar), Bernard Edwards (bass), and Tony Thompson (drums) playing some truly memorable tunes.
"Good Times" alone makes it worth the money. Guitar locked to the hihats, bass bonded to the kick-drum, and absolutely in the groove. Beautiful voices, peerless strings. Legendary.

Review for Japanese 2011 Re-master: Anyone into Rodgers/Edwards will already know this is one of their best efforts musically, a 4 star album (or obviously a 5 star on Amazon!). However I bought the Japanese remaster on the basis that the original CD release never sounded that great & I thought the Japanese would have worked their magic on the master tapes and given Bernards bass lines some solidity (etc) & generally livened the sound up. Mr Isao Kikuchi has produced a new master which does sound better, but it's the type of 'sound' where compression ('sound wars') rules and the CD is too 'in your face', bright and forceful. The music to my ears could have been treated far better and I swear one day Warners will produce a decent sounding version of this album, however this is a missed opportunity, as with the dominance of MP3 how often are the master tapes ever likely to be remastered again? If the main market for CD's is now for people who appreciate not only the music but the way it sounds then it would seem stupid to remaster just to produce MP3 style sounding (compressed) results. Let the music breath a bit!

It strange how you look at an album an profess shock that it has only 7 songs, but that was the norm back then. There is not a bad song listed here! "Good times", optomistic, chunky floor filler that everybody knows. "A warm summer night", a beautiful love ballad with few words, takes you to a feeling of deep love, passion & tenderness. I only wish it was longer... much longer. God, I love that tune! My feet keep dancing was a chunky-funky non-hit, but great lyrics, and as a 15 year-old, I could identify with the sentiment. My forbidden lover...so true to me now! Always has been a favourite of mine. "Can't stand to love you" is probably, in my view, the weakest song on the album, but still good. "Will you cry"... you can feel the pain of this song... the emotion of this song is raw! And, finaly, "what about me", Ouch! If this song rings a chord, then you need to polish-up-your-act! Magical CD.

I watched a programme on BBC4 recently about Nile Rodgers and it was this that has inspired this purchase. I was 19 when this album came out, but I did not buy it at the time because I was not into buying albums then as all my hard earned cash went on top 40 singles. But, as I have grown older I have been making retrospective purchases of material from that era. I already had C'est Chic and love listening to it. This purchase was a natural progression of that. I have many friends who hate the late senventies because of disco, and punk but for me disco was the energy boast that young people needed. Saturday Night fever was for many the spark that got them into this style of soul music, because lets be honest disco was derived from soul and R & B which is what Nile Rodgers said that his music was. All the tunes on this are great, and I purchased the Downloaded version so have ended up with the long version of Good Times which is just great. All the other tracks have their own merits. My Forbidden Love and My Feet keep Danncing are two others that I really enjoyed. The only track I was not keen on was A Warm Summer Night. It kind of did not feel right on this album, but maybe that is just me. A great reminder of an era that brought us some wonderful tunes.
