It's great to hear Johnny talking about these legendary CHIC sessions. I love to see some of the songs are on the greatest hits collection. Listening to the songs already released from the album, part of me can understand why it was a big leap of faith for Mathis fans to accept the sound. It is more of a CHIC album. Having said that, "Something to Sing About" is a real gem, that stands proudly along side any CHIC Org. Production and music of 1981. Whilst it's good to have the odd track released, I am hopeful momentum is gathering for a full issue of the whole album complete with sleeve notes etc... And a remix disc of the complete album by dimitri from Paris. And the Fonzi album etc... I'm not asking for much!
