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.

Sonido Filadelfia, funk con pajarita

¡No estaba solo la Motown! ¡Ni la Stax! Filadelfia aportó una tercera pata al soul, tan característica como original. Impulsado por el dúo compuesto por Kenny Gamble y Leon Huff, el Sonido Filadelfia, precursor de la disco music, puso en danza a Estados Unidos a comienzos de los 70, sumergiendo a sus seguidores en un delirio de seda y champán.

Nile Rodgers y Bernard Edwards, dos tipos Chic

¡No solo existe Le Freak en la vida de Chic! En plena locura disco, Nile Rodgers y Bernard Edwards abordaron el género con una copa de champán en sus manos. Prefirieron la sombra a la luz, y fueron autores de un montón de éxitos funky todavía influyentes. El único superviviente del tándem, Nile Rodgers, resucita hoy a Chic después de haber echado una mano a Daft Punk en Get Lucky.
