Chic, C’est Chic, Atlantic SD-19209, 1978

Sometimes, really affordable records can be quite good.  Not everyone will admit to liking Disco Music, but I think its the label they don’t like.  This is a damned great album.  Its only affordable because it sold waaaay more copies than there are record buyers now, so a great condition example like this one can be bought for next to no money.

Le Freak, while being one of the biggest selling singles of all time (reportedly to this day the best selling Atlantic/Warner single of all time) is a record that really came to define its era.  It’s sound has influenced all dance music that came after it, and the rest of the album follows its lead perfectly.

I generally don’t promote records like this.  Mostly because industry changing records cost more than my budget allows, but I didn’t have to think twice before taking this one home. To quote Ferris Bueller, “if you have the means, I highly suggest you pick one up”.  It’s not as hard to find as you might think…

Today’s Summary:

Cost: $2, $884 Remaining
