CHIC | RISQUE LP (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL)
In 1977, Chic (Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson) hit the upper rungs of the charts with their smash debut Lp Chic (FRM-19209) featuring Dance, Dance, Dance as well as the killer funk of Everybody Dance. A year later, their fortunes multiplied to the top of the charts with C'est Chic (FRM-19299 ) The #1 LP featuring the huge chart toppers Le Freak and I Want Your Love, Chic truly were at the top of their game around the world. With all of these hits accumulated in a very short time, Chic roared back with their huge best-selling platinum plus smash Risque. The seven song funk and dance masterpiece would go on to include one of the biggest songs of the era with the #1 Good Times. It's familiar and stunning guitar riff and its powerful bass and drum attack would prove even more rewarding a few years later, as Good Times would go on to be sampled and develop another shelf life all its own thanks to the '80s rap movement. Further hit tracks blew wide open as My Forbidden Lover and My Feet Keep Dancing all became classic dance, soul and pop hits throughoutthe rest of 1979 into 1980 making Risque one of the best-selling albums of its time.
