Between 1977 and 1980 Chic produced some of the most successful and memorable music of the disco era. Their sublime blend of soul, funk and disco took a genre not best remembered for musical innovation and longevity to new heights. Phenomenally-successful, their biggest single, "Le Freak" topped the US charts in 1978 for an amazing five weeks, selling over four million copies and becoming Atlantic Records' biggest-ever single. Chic's creative nucleus was always the writer/musician partnership of Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. They subsequently both enjoyed considerable success as producers, working with such pop legends as David Bowie, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger and Madonna. One of the duo’s first production success stories was the girl group Sister Sledge. Teaming up with Rodgers and Nile in 1979, they produced two of the best-selling anthems of the disco era, "We Are Family" and "He’s The Greatest Dancer". Recorded in April 1996 at Tokyo’s famed Budokan Stadium, this was destined to be the group's last performance, since sadly Bernard Edwards died shortly afterwards. The group is joined by Sister Sledge for stellar performances of their two biggest hits. Guns 'n' Roses guitarist Slash makes a guest appearance and solos on "Le Freak." Boasting top quality sound, the concert features superb, extended versions of their greatest hits, including "Le Freak", "Dance, Dance, Dance", "I Want Your Love" and "Good Times."
