The 12" Singles Collection

by: Chic

A 2013 release from Rhino, The 12" Singles Collection was released on vinyl and as a digital download. The vinyl edition consisted of five pieces of 180-gram vinyl. The sleeve design doesn't replicate the original releases, but it's sharp. Selection-wise, only the fifth piece is suspect, with 1982's "Hangin'" -- which didn't even register on the U.S. club chart -- and 1992's retro-contemporary "Chic Mystique" given the nod instead of, say, "Rebels Are We" and "Real People." The physical product is a nice collector's item and certainly helpful for purist DJs. For downloaders who are casual fans, several preferable and more representative options -- including The Best of Chic, Vol. 1, The Best of Chic, Vol. 2, and The Very Best of Chic -- were in circulation when this was released. ~ Andy Kellman
