So Chic

Bagging Area doesn’t do much disco but here’s an exception and another song from freebie cd I plundered yesterday- this time some disco from Diana Ross with added Chic. Personally I could listen to an instrumental version of this that was just Nile Rodger’s guitar riff and the drums for six minutes but here you get la Ross and a load of disco on top of the chicca-chicca-chicca.

I’m Coming Out (Chic Mix)

How Soon Was Then?

I quite like this- Johnny Marr and his Healers playing How Soon Is Now at a gig (Ray Bans promo possibly),  October 2011. Some of the guitaring is first rate, as you might expect.

And playing some Chic with Nile Rodgers a month later (lower quality fan filming job I’m afraid but the riff survives).

Tres Chic



Reggae cover version of Chic’s I Want Your Love for Sunday anyone? Recorded at Sir Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One by Norma White and house band the Brentford Disco Set. The 12″ had a dub on the B-side.
