Robert Cotter's long lost New York funk masterpiece featuring the

pre-Chic 'Big Apple Band', including Nile Rodgers and Bernard

Edwards, reissued for the first time since 1976.

 



Wewantsounds is delighted to announce the reissue of Robert Cotter's ultra-rare 1976

album, 'Missing You' in partnership with Robert Cotter himself. Originally released on the

notorious Tiger Lily label, the album was never properly released at the time and most copies

were destroyed before they could hit record store shelves. The few that survived now

command unreasonable prices. The album, recorded in New York between 1975 and 76, is

also Chic's earliest recording - or The Big Apple Band as the group was known, which Robert

Cotter was fronting at the time alongside fellow musicians Nile RodgersBernard Edwards,

Tony Thompson and Robert Sabino.

 

The album's audio has been remastered and the reissue comes with its original artwork

plus a 2 page insert featuring liner notes by Love Injection's Barbie Bertisch and Paul

Raffaele telling the whole story.
