Everybody Dance: Chic and the Politics of Disco
Daryl Easlea (au)
Chic, led by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, are one of the most underrated and pivotal acts in African-Amer. musical history. They created a discrete R&B sound that just happened to coincide with the disco movement. At the height of their fame, they either released or produced a string of era-defining records: Dance Dance Dance, Le Freak, Good Times, We Are Family, Lost in Music. When disco collapsed, so did Chicís popularity. The group called it a day in 1983. This book puts the rise and fall of the disco duo at the heart of a changing landscape, taking in socio-political and cultural events such as the Civil Rights struggle, the Black Panthers and the U.S. oil crisis. ďAn appraisal of a group whose legacy remains hugely underrated.Ē Photos.
