ROD STEWART, NILE RODGERS and THE ALL-STAR BAND - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay (Live at Apollo Theater - 1985)

Re: Interview Nile Rodgers dans Rolling Stones (Déc. 2019)

The career of legendary NILE RODGERS is simply unbelievable: - Excerpt from this interview: Something cool I did this decade that nobody noticed was: "Um, wow. That’s my life story. That’s what I do. I work every single day and most people have no idea. I’ll say this one, and it’s sort of like a pre...

Re: Debbie Harry - Kookoo

I love this album, my favorite songs are "The Jam Was Moving" and "Surrender". I believe NILE RODGERS doesn't have in his lost archive of demos and unreleased songs from CHIC ORGANIZATION any tracks related to this project, at least he never mentioned DEBBIE HARRY in this now found treasure. As I am...

Re: The Power Station (The Making Of... In Studio 1985)

A supergroup, the unbelievable union of two wonderful groups, DURAN DURAN (JOHN TAYLOR and ANDY TAYLOR) & CHIC (TONY THOMPSON and BERNARD EDWARDS) + ROBERT PALMER (a tremendous vocalist). I always wanted a full album of DURAN DURAN produced by BERNARD EDWARDS, the only song he produced ("A View To A...

BERNARD EDWARDS - Your Love Is Good To Me (7" Single Version)

This version only exists in 7" Single and in Side B (Short Version) of 12" Single, the Side A of 12" Single is the Long Version which is the same Album Version, so this 7" Single Version is rare. I had never listened to this 7" Single Version, I loved this version (the break from this 7" Single Vers...

FRANCK FERNANDEL - Bilan Positive (40 Ans) (1982) (probably BERNARD EDWARDS is also playing the bass)

In my opinion BERNARD EDWARDS is also playing bass on side A of the single "Bilan Positif (40 Ans)" / "L'amour Interdit", the style of the bass throughout the song seems to be BERNARD EDWARDS playing, I think FRANCK FERNANDEL wouldn't miss this opportunity to have one of the best musicians in the hi...

Re: FRANCK FERNANDEL - L'amour Interdit (1982) (BERNARD EDWARDS plays bass)

If you say this about FRANCK FERNANDEL, I believe in you frenchic, you are french, you live in France and you know about him, but the single that contains this song sold more than 300.000 copies, so it was a success. About this single ("Bilan Positif (40 Ans)" / "L'amour Interdit"), notice that the ...

Re: FRANCK FERNANDEL - L'amour Interdit (1982) (BERNARD EDWARDS plays bass)

From what I've heard of this beautiful song I think it's BERNARD EDWARDS, the bass line style in the song is very similar to the NARD style, just as the guitar style of NILE RODGERS is unmistakable, the same is said in the style from the bass of BERNARD EDWARDS. In 1980 NILE RODGERS participated in ...

FRANCK FERNANDEL - L'amour Interdit (1982) (BERNARD EDWARDS plays bass)

I didn't know the participation of our BERNARD EDWARDS in this famous song of 1982, he is playing the bass and apparently he also made the arrangements of this song. The single that this song is extracted sells more than 300.000 copies between 1982 and 1983, another participation of the genius BERNA...

Re: CHIC - Rarities, Oddities and Exclusives (2019)

I recommend to NILE RODGERS not to forget this unrealized material that he has in hand, it is a treasure that mainly us, great fans, we would like to have in our hands, and the original way it was recorded.

Re: CHIC - Rarities, Oddities and Exclusives (2019)

Why "Back In The Old School" appears in this collection? It would be an indication that "Back In The Old School" will not be on new CHIC album ("Executive Realness"), because if "Back In The Old School" doesn't appear on the new album, I will buy this collection. This song is wonderful, it was based...

Re: Norma Jean - Hold Me Lonely Boy (final instrumental)

I totally agree with you frenchic, what a fabulous song, when I saw the tracklist of CHIC ORGANIZATION Boxset number 1 and saw that there would be this unreleased long version of this song, which in the b-side of the single "High Society" I also agree to be very short, I stayed in ecstasy, because w...
