We Are Family is the third studio album by the American R&B vocal group Sister Sledge, released on January 22, 1979 in the United States and on April 30, 1979 in the United Kingdom by Cotillion Records. The album was written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of the band Chic, and includes four hit singles: the title track, "He's the Greatest Dancer", "Lost in Music", and "Thinking of You", all of which have been sampled, remixed, and reissued in the decades after the album's release.

We Are Family" is a song recorded by American vocal group Sister Sledge. Composed by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers, they both offered the song to Atlantic Records; although the record label initially declined, the track was released as a single from the album of the same name in April 1979 and began to gain club and radio play, eventually becoming the group's signature song.

Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of Chic produced this masterpiece for Sister Sledge. Easily the groups best release and not a weak track on the album. Unforgettable ballads and the uptempo tracks speak for themselves! Collectors item! We Are Family is still kind of a guilty pleasure of ours, and that nice Nile Rogers guitar keeps on ripping along in a way that never gets old! This is a @320 vinyl rip of my original Cotillion Record with covers

The Rodgers/Edwards team handles all of the writing, producing, and arranging on this album; so not surprisingly, almost everything on We Are Family is very Chic-sounding. That is true of the sexy "He's the Greatest Dancer" and the anthemic, uplifting title song (both of which soared to on the R&B charts), as well as excellent album tracks like the lush "Easier to Love," the perky "One More Time," and the addictive "Thinking of Yo. The least Chic-sounding tune on the album is the ballad "Somebody Loves Me," which favors a classic.

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Sister Sledge Format: Vinyl. If you are a fan of the super disco group CHIC, then you must be aware of SISTER SLEDGE, because the songs of both groups are produced by the same folks, BERNARD EDWARDS and NILE RODGERS. This album cannot age, an immortal of sorts. Highly recommended to all who is into timeless disco, it will secure it's place in your private stock and in your heart.
