When you're hot … Nile Rodgers has every right to do this in the glow of his Daft Punk moment, namely to rake the coals of his august 1970s/1980s Chic "Organization" – less a disco group than a business model, more an aesthetic code than a production style.

So, spread across four discs, we get all the Chic and Sledge hits, his mixes of the Diana Ross stuff, oddments by Norma Jean, Sheila B, Debbie Harry, Carly Simon and some unreleased Johnny Mathis. Yowsah.
