Product Description

For the first time ever-all of their biggest hits on a single CD! Seven of these are #1 R&B hits: Let's Groove; Serpentine Fire; Sing a Song; Getaway; Shining Star; September , and Got to Get You into My Life . Their best ballads, grooves, pop and R&B hits-17 EWF essentials in all, newly remastered to sound better than ever!

It's the most complete single-disc collection of EWF chart rockers, and Greatest Hits' splendid remastering makes one of the major exponents of '70s funk positivity sound sparkling. From the driving "Shining Star" to the syncopated mastery of "September" and "Boogie Wonderland" to the slow-jam heaven of "After the Love Is Gone," this is a reminder of what made the group so special. --Rickey Wright

One thing is for certain about Earth Wind and Fire - There is no shortage of compilations of their greatest hits out there. From an initial scan of looking at their discography, I was able to come up 8 main ones - and I'm sure there are others in terms of imports and obsolete collections. Some of these greatest hits are specialized collections while others are dated. This CD, "Earth Wind and Fire Greatest Hits" is one of these 8. I'll discuss how this particular set stands out, but first I think it's appropriate to go through some of the other Earth Wind and Fire collections to make you aware of what is out there.

1."Earth Wind and Fire Greatest Hits Volume 1": This was a very popular set from 1978s. It features the debut of the classic song "September" and the release of Earth Wind and Fire's cover of the Beatles' "Got to Get You Into My Life"

2."Earth Wind and Fire Greatest Hits Volume 2": This does feature songs from EWF that were released after Volume 1 as well as other songs not included on Volume 1. It also features the song "Fantasy" that was found on Volume 1.

3."Super Hits": A limited set 10 track set that isn't entirely devoted to the big time EWF hits.

4."The Essential Earth Wind and Fire": Notice how greatest hits albums are now being called "Essential". This is actually a pretty comprhensive 2 disc set. The first disc contains 20 studio tracks and the second disc contains 13 remixes.

5."Let's Groove": The Best of Earth Wind and Fire: A 17 track Collection that focuses on EWF's dance songs.

6."Elements of Love: The Ballads": A 14 track collection focusing on the softer, ballad songs of EWF.

Format: Audio CD
Mid-1970s black music seemed dominated either by fun, mindless party jams like "Jungle Boogie" and "Skin Tight," or dour warnings like "Future Shock" and "Living For The City." Stevie Wonder sang his share of life-affirming music but Earth, Wind & Fire, here with a definitive one-disc greatest hits, made such positive strength the heart of their musical identity.
Some of the era's most needed, heeded messages ran deep and sweet atop Verdine White's bass grooves (front and center on "Getaway"), brother and leader Maurice's drum and percussion tracks honed over years with Chess Records' rhythm section ("Saturday Nite," "Kalimba Story," 1977's dazzling "Serpentine Fire"), Louis Satterfield's horn section scrambling through jazz-rock mazes every track (becoming a 80s rock stalwart backing Phil Collins), and Phillip Bailey's high, clear falsetto on "After The Love Has Gone," the prom dance standard "Reasons," the soaring chorus of "September," and the elegant "Fantasy" which, with "Serpentine Fire," gave R&B one of its best 1-2 LP opening tracks. (It's restored to album length here, with Larry Dunn's superb keyboard intros, after being edited on two previous best-ofs).
Messages like "You're a shining star...shining bright to see what you can truly be," "If you sing a song today, you will make a better way," "Try to resist all the hurt that's all around ya..." moved feet and hearts, misinterpreted by spiritual seekers and hedonists alike in the "Me" decade's last discofied days.

. . ."Shining Star" came out the spring I graduated from high school. During choir tours in college, someone always brought along EWF tapes to play on those long bus rides. I have fond memories of singing right along with "Sing a Song." By the time I was in my early 20s, "Boogie Wonderland," "Getaway" and "Let's Groove" were popular in the discos. And I'd forgotten about their superb remake of "Got to Get You Into My Life" which was originally recorded by four guys who answered to the names of John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Twenty-five years after I first heard these great songs, I finally got this collection. Do these songs still sound like funky fun and make me feel 20 all over again? Absolutely. Are they worth keeping for the next generation? You better believe it. One of my colleagues and I are using "Shining Star" as background music for our students to write about their dreams in our college class for undecided students. And my five-year-old daughter asks me to play it as soon as we get in the car to go anywhere. Did I even mention that a cappella meisters Take 6 and contemporary Christian music's Point of Grace included covers of "Sing A Song" on some of their 1990s albums? A positive, healthy message NEVER goes out of style--especially when it's wrapped around some of the most awesome riffs ever dreamed up. The only thing more fun than listening to these guys is catching them on a cable-TV special or better yet, in person. Put the top down, slide this one into your stereo, and enjoy. . .
