SHEILA & B. DEVOTION - "Your love is good" (1980)

Another great CHIC production performed by French singer Sheila (born as Annie Chancel). Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards provide once again a fool-proof Soul-Disco groove second-to-none. Listen carefully to Nile’s Jazzy solo guitar……..simply wonderful.

Taken from Sheila’s 1980 LP “King of the world” released on Carrere Records in France. Note that this album includes also the hit single “Spacer” selling 5 million copies worldwide. The sound of CHIC is one of the kind!
