CHIC - "Falling in love with you" (1977)

Chic-wise. The art of being elegant, sophisticated, classy, posh. The sound of CHIC that changed completely our perception about soulful music. One step beyond Philly Sound with tight compressed grooves combined with unique smoothness!!!

Listen carefully to this mellow ballad: Norma Jean Wright on lead and Luther Vandross on backing vocals under the guidance of Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards create instant magic!!!!

Taken from their debut self-titled 1977 LP released on Atlantic Records. At that time I was only 12 years old and I had the feeling that music was made in heaven……..

In my opinion, CHIC established the ideal Rhythm Section of all time. Even their ballads (like this one) are flawless!!!
