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. ~ Alex Henderson

Il French Touch in 10 brani

Esattamente vent'anni fa, il French Touch invase i club e le frequenze radio di tutto il mondo, mettendo la Francia al centro della scena della musica elettronica. Qobuz vi racconta la storia dei 10 titoli che hanno lasciato il segno nell’epoca d'oro dei produttori francesi.

Philly Sound, il funk si mette in ghingheri

Né Motown né Stax! Il soul di Philadelphia proporrà una terza voce tutta sua. Escogitato dalla coppia Kenny Gamble e Leon Huff, questo genere precursore della disco fa ballare l’America di inizio anni ’70 ricoprendola di seta e di champagne.

Nile Rodgers e Bernard Edwards, due tipi Chic

Non c'è stato solo "Le Freak" nella vita di Chic! Nel bel mezzo della febbre disco, Nile Rodgers e Bernard Edwards si addentrarono in questo stile musicale con un calice di champagne in mano. Preferendo l'ombra alla luce, firmeranno una serie di hit funky ancora oggi influenti. L'unico sopravvissuto del tandem, Nile Rodgers, resuscita oggi Chic dopo essersi prestato ai Daft Punk per "Get Lucky".
