Remastered from the original Atlantic stereo tapes by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. This sounds better than ever before.

To ensure exceptional sound quality, the albums were mastered at half-speed and pressed on 180-gram vinyl.

Description

Chic’s debut album reached #27 on the US Pop charts, #12 on the R&B charts and was certified Gold by the RIAA, selling more than half a million copies.

Although their follow-up album, C’EST CHIC, was the one that contained their anthemic disco hit “La Freak,” this 1977 debut set the stage for the band’s ultimate success as one of the iconic vocal groups of the disco era. Songwriters Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards (guitarist and bassist, respectively) were masters at concocting simple, driving grooves with percussive, hooky basslines, and an aura of decadent fun, underscored by the indiscriminate dropping of French expressions. Lead singer Norma Jean Wright was particularly expressive in her upper range, creating a template for the hot-to-trot, feline sound associated with female disco vocalists. Backing singer Alfa Anderson holds her own here, too, and the women’s voices blend well on such hits as “Dance, Dance, Dance” and “Strike Up the Band.”
