It all began in the City of Angels in 1969 when the Chicago bred producer/songwriter/vocalist/percussionist Maurice White and his brother Verdine formed an R & B group that they dubbed Salty Peppers. Less than two years later the brothers hired a new band and added lead vocalist Philip Bailey to the mix. Thus was born Earth, Wind & Fire and as they say the rest is history. Over the next 18 years the group would amass an impressive total of 32 Top 100 records. "Playlist: The Very Best of Earth, Wind & Fire" is the impressive 2008 collection of 14 of the groups biggest and best hits from this period. If you haven't heard this stuff for a while then you are in for a real treat!

Of all of the hits of Earth Wind & Fire perhaps my very favorite is the 1978 release "September". It is virtually impossible not to get up and "shake your booty" when this one is playing. It was also fun to hear once again the groups only #1 pop single "Shining Star" from 1975 as well as other great hits like "Sing A Song", "After The Love Is Gone", and the fabulous collaboration with the Emotions "Boogie Wonderland" which was all the rage on the dance floor back in 1979. Other notable hits in this collection are "Getaway", "That's The Way Of The World", and "Serpentine Fire". My guess is that you will enjoy each and every one of the tracks on this disc.

With the release of their 23rd album entitled "Illumination" Earth Wind & Fire continues to make great music. The group is still thrilling audiences across the country and has just finished an impressive three month concert tour. Earth, Wind & Fire was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the year 2000. The group has also been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and is the recipient of BET's Lifetime Achievement award.

A good collection of their biggest hits, and does not substitute concert tracks for the original recordings, nor does it contain edited versions, as I have seen on other compilations.

EWF for my money was always my Beatles. songs that moved you and spoke to the soul then and now. the horns, harmonys, songwriting,Production, instrumentation, arrangements and the overall feel Good quality that is there trademark are all here. there musical diversity and soulful nature comes across the hits loud and clear. great place to start for the newbie to the Elements.

Every single song is great, so you can hear the whole album without skipping a track.
Even the slower songs are not boring, which I feel is often the case with other bands.
Such a joyful collection!
