Album of the Day
We are Family
Sister Sledge already had a couple of studio sets under their belts when they released WE ARE FAMILY, and it stands as not just the group's finest, but one of the greatest longplayers of the disco era. The title track became a No.2 hit and remains an anthem of pride and solidarity; opener “He's the Greatest Dancer” also reached the Top Ten (the album itself went platinum). Philadelphia siblings Kathy, Debbie, Joni and Kim Sledge harmonize like angels and each gets a chance to sing lead, and the sisters get a huge assist from Chic's Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers, who wrote and produced these 8 tracks. Rogers once declared that “pound for pound, I think WE ARE FAMILY is our best album hands down,” and it's tough to argue with that assessment.
