Released: Nov 1998
This 1998 album is Earth, Wind and Fire's most comprehensive and perhaps even best collection of chart-toppers and standout cuts. Seventeen of their metaphysical funk anthems and experimental, jazzy stirrers are remastered so pristinely that you can hear Maurice White take a breath between songs, like on the seductive slow jam of "After the Love Is Gone," or sandwiched between the snarling recriminations of "Can't Hide Love." Plus, has there ever been a better feel-good song than "Shining Star"? This greatest-hits collection will remind you what a force of nature the group continues to be.
