The genius of Chic

Chic is one of my favorite bands of all times, so thanks to Disco Delivery for posting excerpts from a Radio 2 show about the production of two of their hits, "Good Times" and "Le Freak." Having access to the many tracks that make up the songs, hosts Richard Allinson and Steve Levine go on to isolate and analyze each element. "The overall sound on this single is as close to the perfect pop single as you can get," Allinson says about "Good Times." He could not be more right. Absolutely imperative listening for anybody with more than a passing interest in pop music.
