Before 1979's We Are Family, Sister Sledge wasn't a huge name in the R&B/disco world. The group had enjoyed a small following and scored a few minor hits, including "Love, Don't You Go Through No Changes on Me" in 1974 and "Blockbuster Boy" in 1977. But it wasn't until We Are Family that the Philadelphia siblings finally exploded commercially, and the people they have to thank for their commercial success are Chic leaders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. The Rodgers/Edwards team handles all of the writing, producing, and arranging on this album; so not surprisingly, almost everything on We Are Family is very Chic-sounding. That is true of the sexy "He's the Greatest Dancer" and the anthemic, uplifting title song (both of which soared to #1 on the R&B charts), as well as excellent album tracks like the lush "Easier to Love," the perky "One More Time," and the addictive "Thinking of You." The least Chic-sounding tune on the album is the ballad "Somebody Loves Me," which favors a classic sweet soul approach and is the type of song one would have expected from Thom Bell, Gamble & Huff, or Holland-Dozier-Holland rather than Rodgers/Edwards. Meanwhile, the intoxicating "Lost in Music" (a #35 R&B hit) is about as Chic-sounding as it gets. When Rhino reissued We Are Family on CD in 1995, it added four bonus tracks, all of which are remixes of either the title song or "Lost in Music." These remixes are intriguing; it's interesting to hear late '70s classics turned into high-tech 1990s dance-pop. But they are less than essential, and the original versions are by far the best -- how can you improve on perfection? Both creatively and commercially, We Are Family is Sister Sledge's crowning achievement.

Les 10 titres qui ont fait la French Touch

Il y a vingt ans, la French Touch envahissait les clubs et les ondes radio du monde entier, installant l’Hexagone en bonne place sur la carte des musiques électroniques. Qobuz vous raconte l’histoire des 10 titres qui ont marqué cette période dorée pour les producteurs français.

Philly Sound, un nœud pap sur le funk

Ni Motown ! Ni Stax ! La soul de Philadelphie proposera une troisième voix bien à elle. Concocté par la paire Kenny Gamble et Leon Huff, ce genre précurseur du disco fait danser l’Amérique du début des années 70 en la plongeant dans la soie et le champagne.

Nile Rodgers et Bernard Edwards, deux Chic types

Y a pas que “Le Freak” dans la vie de Chic ! En pleine folie disco, Nile Rodgers et Bernard Edwards ont abordé le genre une coupe de champ’ à la main. Préférant l’ombre à la lumière, ils ont surtout signé une flopée de tubes funky toujours aussi influents. Seul survivant du tandem, Nile Rodgers ressuscite aujourd’hui Chic après avoir prêté main-forte aux Daft Punk sur “Get Lucky”.
