NILE RODGERS ON DIANA'S I'M COMING OUT
Some interesting anecdotes here on how an amazing song came to be. And an interesting footnote. Chic produced some of my favorite music of all time and shaped disco, my favorite genre of music. However, they didn't know everything. In the past few years, a deluxe Diana Ross package came out with some unreleased mixes. One was the version of I'm coming Out that Chic produced, the other was the one that Diana made changes on. She brought her vocal further out in front and really punched some notes harder. She knew her brand and was actually able to improve on the version Chic wanted to release. Just another reason to love her!
