Norma Jean WrightPosted by pocat 2014-03-15 12:11 Oh WOW! Another clip with Norma Jean Wright performing her (CHIC produced and written) hit "Saturday" has just surfaced on Youtube. happy days indeed! Check it out CHICsters!
Major event for me. Some good person has posted Norma Jean Wright's performance of two songs from her CHIC Organization produced first solo album, "Having A Party" & the major disco hit "Saturday", on the TV show Soul Train, in 1978, on Youtube. A feast to finally see these rare performances. ENJOY!
Thanks to Graham Lewis & Glen Russell for alerting me to this video.

"The First Ladies Of Disco" is a new book being released this coming summer (you can pre-order on some sites today) which will feature a chapter with the original CHIC Lady, Norma Jean Wright.
She has been interviewed by the author James Arena concentrating mainly on her time at Bearsville Records where she made one album (produced by Bernard Edwards & Nile Rodgers) and a follow-up single.
The album spawned the R&B top 20 hit "Saturday" (Club #10). The follow-up single "High Society" was also a top 20 R&B hit. But strangely there was no album following "High Society", despite it's success. Maybe we will know more about it, when this book comes out?
