Earth, Wind & Fire has sold in excess of 100 million albums and is safely enshrined in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. One of the highlights of their career was the release of their 1978 album The Best Of Earth, Wind & Fire, which sold over five-million copies.
Record Day’s Black Friday event in late November enables labels to release a number of creative and unusual releases. One of Columbia Legacy’s contributions was a picture disc of The Best Of Earth, Wind, & Fire.
The vinyl album is eminently playable but was issued primarily as a collectable. Songs such as “Got To Get You Into My Life,” “September,” “That’s The Way Of The World,” and “Shining Star” have been re-released many times and in a number of formats throughout the years but this new picture disc is a nice addition the bands legacy.
It is a release that is not for everyone but for the discerning collector, it is a shiny addition to a collection.
