Additional Information

Chic's "Good Times" summed up disco's decadent allure right at the moment the style's cultural backlash began in full. Of course, disco never went away, and neither did Chic, whose leaders, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, went full-time into producing and playing with others. Nor did Edwards' landmark bass line, which became a pop-music virus, coming up again and again in other people's hits, such as Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" and, of course, the Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight," the birth of recorded hip-hop. We Won't Settle for Less: Chic at the End of Disco looks at this modern standard--or, if you will, a post-standard, as frequently sampled as covered or rewritten--through the many lenses it demands, from '40s nostalgia in the '70s to the collapse of disco to the everlasting allure of the Manhattan high life.
