DIANA ROSS - Rescue Me (1984) (NILE, BERNARD and TONY playing together in my opinion)

Magnificent cover done by DIANA ROSS of the song "Rescue Me" by FONTELLA BASS from 1965. This song appears in the excellent album "Swept Away" from 1984. Unfortunately the list of musicians in the credits on this album is not specific and is still incomplete (TONY THOMPSON, JIMMY BRALOWER, ARTHUR BARROW and other musicians also participated in the project). In my opinion this song is another song of 1984 with the participation of the geniuses of CHIC ORGANIZATION (NILE RODGERS, BERNARD EDWARDS and TONY THOMPSON) playing together. The other songs from 1984 with the participation of the geniuses of CHIC ORGANIZATION playing together are: "Like A Virgin", "Material Girl", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" and "Shoo-Bee-Doo" by MADONNA and "Telephone" by DIANA ROSS.

Re: DIANA ROSS - Rescue Me (1984) (NILE, BERNARD and TONY playing together in my opinion)

I read an interview of Tony Thompson in "Modern drummer" magazine in 1985.
He was a little bit disappointed not to be credited on the Swept Away LP.
Diana said there was not enough place in the inside sleeve to mention all the musicians...

You're right Alex it's Nile Rodgers guitar on Rescue me and I also think he recorded that song with Nard and Tony
