"Stage Fright" is the first and only single taken from Chic's fifth studio album Take It Off. The song, featuring a solo lead vocal by Luci Martin, is a highlight of CHIC's post-Disco offerings; showcasing the funk ensemble at its most stripped down and rawest. Though widely ignored upon its release; just missing Billboard's Hot 100 chart but faring better on Billboard's Hot Soul/Black Singles chart, the track remains a much sampled and interpolated tune in the CHIC arsenal.
