CHIC ’80 (Stream Mountain CSS 802) 1980



A less consistent album, but still six or so fun live acoustic tracks with Stromberg either leading the audience in song or performing solo. Examples include ‘The Saints Sing-A-Long’, ‘God Is Love’, ‘Seedling’ and ‘The Scootch Song’, the latter a musical exhortation for the audience to “scootch up” in their seats (complete with “bleeps” substituting the word hindquarters). Elsewhere it’s piano-backed contemporary gospel from Covenant Heartsong and the CHIC ’80 Choir. Took place August 16-22, 1980 in Estes Park, Colorado. Big fat gatefold cover with a built-in 15-page booklet of color and b&w photos. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

Listed as CHIC ’80 in The Archivist.
