Chic – Will You Cry (Outtake) (1979)

After two decades of crappy-sounding Chic CDs, Rhino finally got round to re-releasing the music of Nile Rodgers and the late Bernard Edwards in a proper package: THE CHIC ORGANIZATION BOX SET VOL 1

Not every track in this box is really essential. And those “rescue-a-pop-star-from-back-in-the-days-by-pouring-disco-chocolate-sauce-over-him” kind of productions (Johnny Mathis?) are about as necessary as a spray cheese. But that’s not the point here.

The point is that this is fun. TONS of fun. Hedonistic, careless, ultra-funky fun. Thank you, Rodgers & Edwards, for getting my tired winter feet back into wiggle mode!

And if you every wondered why musicians of this calibre have churned out teletubby-style lyrics like “Everybody Dance, Clap Your Hands, Clap Your Hands”, chances are it might just be their sense of humour – as the following example may prove.
