Info for Real People (Remastered)

In the early '80s, Chic's influence on other artists was hard to miss. Change, Fantasy, Luther Vandross, the Talking Heads, Grace Jones and Queen were among the many artists who were incorporating elements of the Chic sound. It was ironic and quite amusing to hear some members of the 'Death to Disco!' brigade blaring Queen's 'Another One Bites the Dust' on their car stereos during the summer of 1980, for that funk-rock ditty was obviously based on 'Good Times.' But Chic itself was seeing its popularity start to fade, and fans were realizing that the group had reached its creative peak in the late '70s.

Like other albums that Chic recorded in the early '80s, Real People is competent but less than essential. Diehard fans will find that while 'Rebels Are We,' 'I Got Protection' and 'Chip off the Old Block' are likable and catchy, they aren't in a class with 'Good Times' or 'Le Freak.' This is a decent album, but it's also the work of a group that was past its prime.“ (Alex Henderson)
