Album of the Day
Rarities, Oddities, and Exclusives
Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards formed Chic in 1976 after Rodgers was inspired by seeing Roxy Music play live in London; a year later, the band signed with Atlantic Records, where they helped define the pop and disco genres with a string of unstoppable hits. The new digital collection RARITIES, ODDITIES AND EXCLUSIVES brings together 17 rare mixes and hard-to-find tracks from the legendary group. Picking up where last year’s Chic Organization boxed set left off, the set includes a 12” remix of “Chic Mystique,” a #1 hit for the band in 1982; “Tavern On The Green” from the Soup For One soundtrack, plus four remixes of “Le Freak” from 2014 by Chic & Aristofreeks. If the versions on RARITIES, ODDITIES AND EXCLUSIVES are unfamiliar to listeners, they are all recognizable as the work of one of the greatest dance bands in history.
