Life Is A Dance

Chaka Khan
Singer Chaka Khan first found fame with funk group Rufus in 1973.  Over her long career she has successfully lent her powerful voice to pop, jazz, R&B and soul, but in 1989 she had a go at house music too.  Or rather, she allowed an array of producers to remix 11 of her hits into extended club versions to make a double album of floorfillers.

I bought Life Is A Dance at a car boot sale last autumn for £1:

Chaka Khan - Life Is A Dance - The Remix Project (1989)

My top tracks (Spotify links below) are the legendary Frankie Knuckles' remix of Ain't Nobody and radio and club DJ Tony Humphries' mix of I Know You, I Live You.

The album reached no.1 in the UK and every single track reached no.1 in the US dance play chart.
