  1. This to me is THE release of the year! To fi-nal-ly have three tracks off of “I Love My Lady” is a dream come true- and the rest of the goodies included in this box set are amazing too.
    Kudos to Warner France and a big FAIL to Rhino/Warner US for letting this project slip through their fingers. At least us Europeans fully appreciate the legacy of the best and classiest funk/r’n’b band ever! 🙂

      • Aww, I was just playin’ Mike. I’m not a credit whore. It’s all about the music here. Your site is my replacement for ICE’s “Reissue Front”…took a long time to find one!

  4. Have been waiting for a Chic box for years and was very pleased to find that one’s coming out. Heart sank when I saw that Dmitri from Paris has remixed five of the songs on it. Why mess with perfection, this has totally soured the box for me now.

    • Apparently if sales for the box set are good, there will be a volume 2, including among other stuff an alternate mix of “Good Times”.
