great `old school` tunes ;).
The original version of this Up All Night Greatest Hits compilation (the orange sleeve) only came out earlier in 2013 following Nile's success with Daft Punk's Get Lucky which sadly isn't included. This version (Red Sleeve, 'Disco edition') is out in time for Christmas, and just changes 5 of the tracks, the other 20 are the same.
IN comes: Like A Virgin (Madonna), Frankie (Sister Sledge), The Reflex (Duran Duran), Chic minimix (Megamix) and a fabulous live medley recorded at Glastonbury 2013 (which actually would be better if it was a DVD). If you want these buy the RED one.
OUT goes: Got To Love Somebody (Sister Sledge), Backfired (Debbie Harry), Soup For One (Chic), High Society (Norma Jean Wright), Reach Your Peak (Sister Sledge). If you want these buy the ORANGE one.
I vote red!
I've reviewed other Chic releases on Amazon, but I'm happy to recant what I've said previously about which release is best; although it's not comprehensive, Rhino have finally done a great job and produced the Tastiest, Chic-est Disco Biscuit yet. The forthcoming remasters of the original Chic albums will be interesting.
There are 5 changes made for this Disco Edition. A quintet of so-so tracks is exorcised from the running order: a pair of tracks from Sister Sledge ('Got To Love Somebody', 'Reach Your Peak'); and one each from Debbie Harry ('Backfired'); Chic ('Soup For One'), and Norma Jean Wright ('High Society'). A couple of their replacements are improvements - Nile Rodger's mid-1980s productions for Sister Sledge's sole UK no 1 'Frankie' and the 12" version of Madonna's first - and maybe best - chart-topper 'Like a Virgin'.Read more ›
I recently I saw this collection and thought I'd take a chance. Sorry to say that once again the recordings seem dead. I have some of the tracks on other albums (Madonna, Sister Sledge, Duran Duran... Yes I'm of a certain age!) which sound great so I don't think it's my ears. Of course sound is subjective and it's all down to personal taste, but if you like to hear detail in your music, you may be disappointed by this. Five stars for the songs though.
