Side A sticks close to the up-tempo disco-friendly original with musical backing given just a light dash of Caribbean lilt by Gibbs, while the girls add their own swagger to the original lyrics. But the flipside's 'Rockers Choice' is where Gibbs and the girls really let loose with some off-the-wall rap craziness (anyone fancy going to a club with roaches in the food and flies on your milkshake...) spat over a great bouncing reggae groove. The phenomenal instrumental delves deeper into dubbed-out reggae territory providing a dark and heavy syncopated take on those unmistakeable Chic riffs - an inspired rework that crossed the Atlantic to become a firm favourite with Baldelli on Italy's Cosmic scene as well as in NY and Jamaica. Four more-than-worthy versions of the all-time classic on one great if slightly eccentric 12" - essential!
