The final box set list has been released by Rhino France, see below.
There are some real gems in there for instance Nile Rodgers remix of "Dream Girl".
Three Johnny Mathis tracks from the STILL!!! unreleased "I Love My Lady" album CHIC did with him in 1981. I'm really happy that my favorite track from that album "Sing" is on there. I am surprised that they didn't put the title track in the box, perhaps that is something we can look forward to in Vol II or III, if we buy enough box sets that is.
Two tracks from Fonzi Thornton's "Frostbite" album he did with CHIC in 1981 is great, but what we really want is that full album.
The real surprise is a previously unknown track "Just Call Me" which according to our fountains of information, chictribute.com associates and generally glorious guys, FrenCHIC, & Simon Parr (who informed me), is a track that was recorded after the "Believer" sessions were finished (a time when we all thought CHIC had disbanded?).
4 outtakes may also give us insight to the CHIC gang working in the studio, and that, for me, is very interesting.
Dimitri from Paris who is possibly the best remixer in the world today delivers 5 remixes, most of them CHIC hits, but he has chosen one track not from the CHIC Organization heyday, and that remix is the most interesting to me; "I Feel Your Love Comin' On". So I'm getting really really really excited anticipating the 18th of October, a great day indeed.
