Hi-Res Distinctions Pitchfork: Best New Reissue
Produced with the involvement of Nile Rodgers and approval from the estate of partner Bernard Edwards, this box set remasters and recirculates Chic's first three albums and the contemporaneous We Are Family, in essence a Chic LP fronted by labelmates Sister Sledge. Another disc compiles edits and mixes of Chic-headlined singles of the same era. (The Chic Organization's commissioned works for labels other than their Atlantic home base, namely Norma Jean's self-titled album and Sheila & B. Devotion's "Spacer," aren't included.) During this period, the band surfaced and instantly reigned in clubs and on the Billboard dance chart, and with "Le Freak" and "Good Times," took their slick and funky disco-soul hybrid to the top of the Hot 100. The recordings created everlasting aftershocks throughout commercial and underground music, consequently making guitarist Rodgers, bassist Edwards, drummer Tony Thompson, and a team of vocalists led by Alfa Anderson and Luci Martin (with invaluable assistance from Luther Vandross) unwitting instigators of rap, dance-pop, and house music. The albums, all of which went either gold or platinum and have depth beyond the hits (start with the stunning "At Last I Am Free" and heavenly "Thinking of You"), are packaged individually in replica sleeves, joined by a booklet with lengthy essays from Paul Morley and Touré. The vinyl edition adds a reproduction of the 12" debut, "Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)" b/w "São Paulo," issued on Buddah prior to the band's switch to Atlantic, as well as a third essay, written by Ashley Kahn. Regardless of format, the box is a straightforward alternative to the outtakes/remixes-packed The Chic Organization Box Set, Vol. 1: Savoir Faire (2010) and two-disc summary The Chic Organization: Up All Night - The Greatest Hits (2013), both of which are wider in scope but were not distributed in the U.S. © Andy Kellman /TiVo

Soul/Funk/R&B - Released September 28, 2018 | EMI

You know you’re talented when David Bowie, Madonna, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger or Daft Punk come to you for help. Nile Rodgers’ magic touch has fascinated us since the seventies. The 66-year-old New Yorker can do it all, from irresistible guitar riffs and unstoppable melodies to efficient productions and delicious arrangements. On his lengthy CV however there are four letters that stand out: C h i c. Alongside his accomplice Bernard Edwards on the bass (who died prematurely in 1996, only 43 years old), Rodgers made the whole world dance and defined the sound of an incredibly influential funky disco. Chic topped the charts with the hits Le Freak and Good Times, placing the Rodgers & Edwards duo in the same vein as Holland-Dozier-Holland and Gamble & Huff... On September 28th 2018, over 25 years after Chic-ism, Nile Rodgers released the album It’s About Time under the name Nile Rodgers & Chic, to which he invited Elton John, Lady Gaga, Craig David, Vic Mensa, Emeli Sandé and Nao. It’s the perfect opportunity to bring those four letters back to the forefront and to play Dance Dance Dance and Good Times on loop… In terms of tracks, Rodgers offers original songs and even sneaks in a cover of I Want Your Love by Lady Gaga. While it sounds like the perfect soundtrack for dance floors all around the globe, It’s About Time strings together pure disco, new jack swing 90’s, electro funk similar to that of Daft Punk, vintage jazz rock fusion and contemporary R&B. It may seem hard to find a clear connection between all these groovy genres, but luckily the MC is amazing. So enjoy being carried away by his creative madness. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
