Their Feet Keep Dancing: Rhino U.K. Updates CHIC Compilation, Plans Triple-Disc Disco Set

with 6 comments

Up All Night Disco EditionRhino U.K. is bringing disco back with a new triple-disc compilation of dance classics, and an updated reissue of a successful compilation released earlier this year.

First up, Rhino’s reissuing the new Nile Rodgers/CHIC compilation Up All Night. The double-disc set, originally compiled by Wayne A. Dickson of Big Break Records and mastered by Dickson and BBR engineer Nick Robbins, with liner notes from Christian John Wikane, was released in July to capitalize on Rodgers’ highly enjoyable wave of success this year. (The legendary guitarist/producer played and co-wrote several tracks on Daft Punk’s critically-acclaimed album Random Access Memories, including international chart-topper “Get Lucky,” and played several key dates in Europe. Since then, CHIC has been once again nominated for induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.)

Up All Night: The Disco Edition features a slightly rearranged track list, with several lesser-known hits dropped in favor of five newly-added tracks: the CHIC-produced “Frankie” by Sister Sledge; two Rodgers-produced ’80s hits (Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” and Duran Duran’s “The Reflex”), a megamix of CHIC Organization tracks and a live cut from Rodgers’ performance at the Glastonbury Festival this summer.

12%22 Disco CollectionThe fine folks at Big Break (Dickson along with compiler Malcolm McKenzie) have also produced another forthcoming discofied Rhino set: 12″ Disco: The Collection compiles 34 tracks – mostly from the Warner Bros., Elektra, T.K. and Atlantic vaults, naturally – including four cuts that have never been released on CD before. In addition to CHIC and Sister Sledge, tracks from Chaka Khan, The Trammps, Ben E. King, The Spinners, Change, George McCrae and Narada Michael Walden are all featured herein.

12″ Disco: The Collection is available in U.K. shops today, while Up All Night: The Disco Edition is out next Monday, October 28. Pre-order links, full track lists and U.K. discographical info for both titles can be found after the jump!

  1. Hope the CD version of 12″ Disco is better than the digital version on iTunes and Spotify, as the tracklisting is all over the shop and has the Blue Magic track repeated with no George McCrae!

    Very cheap in the UK, though.

  3. ‘Frankie’ wasn’t produced by The CHIC Organization. It was one of Nile’s solo productions.

  4. Adding Frankie to a compilation helps it become “The Disco Edition”? WTF? Is there a less disco Chic record?

  5. I’ll keep my “first” edition of “Up All the Night,” thank you very much. I’m not sure the reasoning behind a so-called updated version other than pure greed, but the new stuff doesn’t intrigue me nearly enough to essentially double-dip. I actually think this new version is musically less interesting now, IMHO.

    I just ordered the “12” Disco” set from Amazon UK. Man, for the price, it’s pretty hard to beat! Hopefully the mastering will be halfway decent.
