Countlessly imitated... but there's only one CHIC...

(5 out of 5 stars)
"All through the second half of the 70's, countless other bands tried to imitate and emulate the CHIC sound - a sound created by the pure genius of guitarist NILE RODGERS and bassist BERNARD EDWARDS.
But the truth is CHIC had a sound so cool, so stylish and, yes, so chic, that nobody ever toped them in their game.
The secret was a stunning use of a great rhythm section, guitar, bass, strings, horns and (perhaps) the best vocal group on that decade - woth NORMA JEAN WRIGHT, LUTHER VANDROSS (no less) ALFA ANDERSON and DIVA GREY (among others).
LP after LP, they kept releasing songs that, in a way, helped define the shape of pop during the late 70's.
DANCE, DANCE, DANCE is a non stop, dance floor essential disco track with all the talent fully displayed. It is so rich and full of nuances. Sometimes, I do catch myself singing "yowsah, yousah, yousaaahhh!!"
SÃO PAULO is my favorite song in the album. It is the perfect definition of 70's cool. Check that bass!!!!! Check that flute!!!!!
The other tracks are also great. EVERYBODY DANCE is just another classic!!
This album deserves to be in everybody's collection. Enjoy!"
