    Have listened to discs 2 and 4 of the Chic boxset, and the rare tracks are good.

    However, although respectfully done, I do not understand why the Dimitri from Paris remixes needed to be included. It’s frustrating when you’re singing along in the bath and the track doesn’t go the way you expect it to. If they wanted to include them, put them on a separate disk.

    It will be interesting to see what is on Up All Night that has not been included here.

    any idea if the original inner sleeves are included ?

  3. SimonP says:

    Probably a good thing. There are many rare tracks on their, but whether of them are any good is another matter. What’s with all the remixes by that fella from the French capital all about?!
