CHIC | C'EST CHIC (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION)
In the early seventies, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were playing in rock and soul bands across New York City and the east coast, meeting up with Tony Thompson along the way and forming the rudiments of what would become one of the most powerful and successful pop/r&b units ever known as Chic. By 1977, they sailed into the top rungs of the charts with their smash debut single Dance, Dance, Dance along with the killer funk of their first album simply titled Chic (FRM-19209). A year later, their fortunes multiplied to the top of the charts with C'est Chic. The number one LP was chock full of hit singles, funk madness and probably some of the finest rock/funk/soul beats ever waxed in a studio. Featuring the huge chart toppers Le Freak and the super soul of I Want Your Love, Chic truly were at the top of their game around the world. Along with vocalists Alfa Anderson, Norma Jean Wright and future superstar Luther Vandross , Chic was the band of choice for party people, dance clubs and radio stations all over with this brilliant album.With star power tracks like Happy Man and the stellar instrumental fare of Savoir Faire, C'est Chic would become a staple at retail and sell over six million units during its first run at retail. Chic's importance is celebrated today as number one bands like Daft Punk have paid tribute and collaborated with the funk and dance groove master himself, Mr. Nile Rodgers.
