Reviews :

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 r&b units ever known as Chic.


In 1977, they hit the top of the charts a couple of times with their smash debut single Dance, Dance, Dance as well as the killer funk of Everybody Dance.

The first album simply titled Chic also featured some very amazing playing and more deep soul tracks like Sao Paulo, You Can Get By and the funk infused Strike Up The Band.

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 debut album.

With star power tracks and their stellar instrumental funk infused musicianship, Chic's debut became a staple at retail and on the dancefloors and started a trend which has now lasted over four decades for this Rock Hall Of Fame winning band.
