WE ARE FAMILY is the canonical Sister Sledge album, containing both of the group's biggest songs; their first hit, "He's the Greatest Dancer"; and their signature anthem,"We Are Family." Produced by Chic's Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, WE ARE FAMILY is a landmark of the late disco sound. This inexpensive budget line reissue on the Rhino Flashback label contains the full 1979 album plus four bonus tracks: two remixes each of "We Are Family" and the album's third single, "Lost In Music."
