I love Chic. I love Nile Rodgers. And yet I had never heard C’est Chic until just recently. I have listened to live albums and watched the recent DVDs and then way ahead of that I’ve had compilations and I regularly jam the key tracks, the big singles, the obvious stuff…but it’s weird that I’ve never listened through to the albums, I mean I’ve hunted out loads of Rodgers’ post-Chic stuff – solo albums and the lesser known sideman/production jobs, again as well as the big, obvious stuff from The Hitmaker.
Great to hear the key tracks on here in their original context. Great to hear the album tracks too. A superb record. Of course. No real surprise there. But yeah, good to (finally) be on board with this one…Chic’s second album.
