On Chic’s four-date run with Duran Duran, which includes an Oct. 1 stop at the Hollywood Bowl: I think of them as my second Chic, my other band. All of my life I’ve wanted to be on tour with Chic and Duran Duran. And for the first time we get to do it. On Diana Ross inspiring the track Queen on the upcoming Chic album: I wrote Queen 25 years ago at least after I was with Diana at a Julio Iglesias concert at Radio City in New York. Iglesias announced that his queen Diana Ross was in the audience. I tried to get her to do the song years ago, but she wouldn’t.
I am actually a die-hard Duran Duran fan, and I think this album did the songs justice. I first got this CD back in the late 90s off the shelf at a used CD store, and was pleased with the CD. I was also able to pass it around to friends who weren't into Duran Duran (back then, loving the 80s wasn't okay) and they loved the Ska take on these tracks.
Duran Duran released its self-titled debut album worldwide on June 15, 1981. Produced and engineered by Colin Thurston, the record was recorded at London's Red Bus Studios and Oxfordshire's Chipping Norton Studios. At the time, the quintet – vocalist Simon Le Bon, guitarist Andy Taylor, bassist John Taylor, drummer Roger Taylor and keyboardist Nick Rhodes – had been together in its current incarnation for a little over a year.
Thank You (Duran Duran album). Thank You is the eighth studio album by English new wave band Duran Duran. It was released on 4 April 1995 by Parlophone.
Duran Duran was one of the most successful bands to emerge from the early MTV era. They had all the ingredients for success and were a perfect partner for the fledging music network. Duran Duran continued their hot streak in 1983 with third album Seven And The Ragged Tiger, released in November of that year. Union of the Snake and New Moon on Monday were both Top 10 hits, and they finally earned their first US in the spring of ’84 with the third single, a Nile Rodgers remix of album track The Reflex. The hits kept coming. Meanwhile, guitarist Andy Taylor and bassist John Taylor joined with former Chic drummer Tony Thompson and vocalist Robert Palmer to form The Power Station, with an edgy but more commercial heavy pop-rock sound. They scored two major hits over the summer of ’85 with Some Like it Hot and their cover of the T. Rex classic Get it On (Bang a Gong).

Duran Duran's eponymous debut artfully coalesced the sonic and stylistic elements of the burgeoning new romantic movement they were soon to spearhead: pumping synths, glossy production, and seemingly impossible haircuts. Ultra-smart singles like "Girls on Film" and "Planet Earth" became instant smash hits both in the . and America, and other fine pop gems such as "Anyone Out There" and "Careless Memories" rounded out the album's stellar first side.

The album doesn't give any details of where or when the recordings were made or any record label name, but features the tracks "The Reflex", "Careless Memories" and the band's debut single "Planet Earth". It turns out upon actually listening to the tracks that the recordings are identical to those on Duran Durance, Two for the Show, and several other well known unofficial albums as well as the original source, a Westwood One radio broadcast. They were recorded at the Oakland Coliseum in 1984 and include many songs that were then remixed for inclusion on the official live release Arena.
