About Earth, Wind & Fire
Creative yet renowned, accurate yet outstanding, determined yet energizing, the Earth, Wind & Fire evolved the sound of black bash in 1970s—their exhaustive, sound covering Latin-funk cadence with truth harmonies, precise bells, Philip Bailey’s soothing alto, and several exquisite parts selected by head and maker Maurice White. Different from their ideological opponents, the base and soiled but equally diverse Legislature/Funkadelic, the group has always taught fresh and inspiring notes.
Son of a physician and the grand-son of a club piano player in New Orleans—Maurice White served as a studio drummer at famous Chess Records from 1963 to 1967 after graduating from Chicago Conservatory. Impressions and Muddy Waters are few of his works. While he released Summertime with Billy Stewart, Fontella Bass was his partner for Rescue Me.
Having served as Ramsey Lewis Trio for about two years, he penned down and made “Sun Goddess”, the 1975 hit of Lewis. While he did the African thumb keyboard—Kalimba with the trilogy, it later turned as the ensemble’s benchmark. It was in the late 1969, that White moved to L.A. and designed the group—Earth, Wind and Fire and released the Salty Peppers for Capitol. The band was also signed by Warners for two fairly successful releases; however; Maurice had one new, younger troupe, keeping his sibling Verdine on alto.
The second release Columbia’s single “Head to the Sky” not just scored 27th rank on pop charts and 2nd position on R&B but also opened their path to success with gold and platinum collections. Following Columbia was “That’s the Way of the World” a single that brought home the Grammy honor of “Shining Star” and also scored number one position in all top music charts.
The group slowly headed up in the music career with grand stage performances that embraced magical snares like pyramids and escaping acts. Albeit the longtime co-maker Charles Stepney passed away in 1976, the group progressed to perform. Their first release was All ‘n All for which they scored two Grammy Awards in year 1978. Perhaps, they served as highpoints of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Robert Stigwood’s movie released in same year. Even their single “Got to Get You Into My Life” from Beatles scored number nine and number one ranks on pop and R&B respectively.
The troupe’s 1979 release, I am, grabbed Spot No. 6 and also became a part of the Emotions on “Boogie Wonderland”. While the band toured heavily in 1980, their album Raise became a rage among fans and the song “Let’s Groove” also snatched top 5 spot. Besides, “While Touch the World” and “Fall in Love With Me” were other top-selling chartbusters. Since their beginning, the ensemble has sweet talked more than 19 million releases.
While Heritage consisted of guest singer M.C Hammer, Greatest Hits Live features a handful of Maurice’s final performances with orchestra during a Japanese tour in mid-90s. It was for Millennium that the ensemble signed with Warner Bros. Records once again.
