September, Shining Star, Sing A Song, Let's Groove, After The Love Is Gone, Boogie Wonderland - the string of hits that Earth, Wind & Fire racked up go on and on, and they haven't aged one bit. But this 16-CD set, comprising the group's entire output for Columbia, goes much deeper than the ear candy.
Casual listeners will be astounded by the artistic reach of the band's founder, Maurice White, who created loose concept albums that explored a vast array of sounds and styles. Funk, soul, disco, African music, blues and jazz - they all had a place in the genre-busting Earth, Wind & Fire.
The Columbia Masters features 15 of the band's classic albums, remastered; original LP jackets, a 40-page booklet with photos and commentary by Maurice White; a bonus disc with unreleased tracks, live performances, live cuts, instrumental versions of Let's Groove and Boogie Wonderland and more.
