Editors' Notes Decades after their founding, Earth, Wind & Fire's signature brand of forward-thinking funk sounds beamed in from the future. The blend of Maurice White's low-rider vocals and Philip Bailey's soaring falsetto helped shoot songs like the sinewy “Serpentine Fire” and the spaced-out “Fantasy” to thrilling heights, while the band's brass blasts and unparalleled tightness make tracks like “Let's Groove” and “September” dance-floor delights. It's no surprise Earth, Wind & Fire's ideas of pan-Africanism and bumping rhythms continue to reverberate throughout pop.
