Mr. Rodgers’ Sisters

This post sent me back to all my old Nile Rodgers albums. It’s hard to pick a favorite Rodgers’ song, but “Thinking Of You,” which he recorded with Sister Sledge in 1979, has to be near the top of the list. The Sledge gals teemed up with Chic’s founders in search of an elusive commercial breakthrough, and they got it big time — the We Are A Family album was a huge success. The album’s title track remains a ubiquitous example of disco, but why isn’t “Thinking Of You” still circulating in the same way? A trademark Rodgers riff skips and stutters, strings swoop, the bass struts and bounces. Pop at its finest.
