Default Chic

These cats don't have their own thread and considering how huge they were in their day I think they deserve one. Musically, they're very, very far outside the kind of stuff I'm normally drawn to being so soft and poppy and whatnot, but I got a copy of their greatest hits a while ago basically just because I wanted the song "Le Freak". What I was amazed to discover was that every single song on the collection was pretty terrific.

For your listening pleasure, "Le Freak":

My flatmate has spent a lot of time trying to emulate Bernard Edwards' bass tone/style with his Stingray.

I've heard and like a few of their songs other than Le Freak but I've yet to listen to any of their albums.

The two albums you ought to be looking at are-
C'est Chic,- released here in '77 and Risque, released in '78. This is the album which has "Good Times" on it!! They contain some of the best of the Disco movement, and are widely acclaimed. Bernie Edwards and Nile Rodgers wrote and produced both Chic and Sister Sledge and the result is Classy and Sassy!
