There was disco and then there was funky disco.
Bassist Bernard Edwards and guitarist Nile Rodgers formed Chic during the mid-1970s. They added drummer Tony Thomson, and vocalists Luci Martin & Norma Jean Wright. Before they were done, they had placed 10 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart including two that reached number one.
“Good Times” was released during the summer of 1979. It is a song that has grown on me down through the years. Rodgers and Edwards were on the of better production teams of their era and combined with Edwards innovative bass lines, they created just about the perfect late 1970s New York song.
It became a huge hit topping both the BILLBOARD Pop and Rhythm & Blues Chart and selling over a million copies during the first month of its release. The disco era may be gone but the song remains.
