25:54 Warren In 1977, the band Chic was a fast rising phenomenon. But that still wasn’t enough to grant Chic founders Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers access to one of the hottest New York clubs of the time – Studio 54. In response, Rodgers and Edwards penned a song which would not only transform the popular music soundscape and showcase the rising importance of disco in the late seventies, but also enshrined them as household names of innovative songwriting and brilliant production…. “Le Freak” Le Freak was recorded in January of 1978 at New York’s Powerstation studio. In addition to Edwards on bass and Rodgers on guitar, it features: Alfa Anderson, Diva Gray, and Luci Martin on vocals, with Robert Sabino on piano and Raymond Jones on the Rhodes keyboard. The Chic string section showcased Cheryl Hong, Marianne Caroll and Karen Milne. Tony Thompson provided the drums and Sammy Figueroa provided the percussion elements. Gene Orloff is credited as concertmaster for the song and the track was produced by Bernard and Edwards. Bob Clearmountain was the engineer. “Le Freak” was released on September 21, 1978 and the song hit the number one spot, not only on the US Billboard Hot 100 but also the Hot Soul Singles chart, the Dance Club Chart and the Cash Box Top 100. It was also an international hit, hitting the top 10 in Austria, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and the UK, and holding the number 1 spot in South Africa, New Zealand, Canda, and Australia. The song catapulted Chic to worldwide attention and showcased the importance of dance music in the late seventies. In 2018, it was even selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress for its cultural, historical and artistic significance. ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
