A few Twitter friends sent along some great Earth, Wind, and Fire tunes which got me thinking about how much this band influenced me.
I've seen EWF and Philip Bailey in concert more times than almost any other musical act!
Earth, Wind, and Fire has held sway among my musical influences since my earliest days as a singer-songwriter.
On the following pages are some EWF tracks along with my songs influenced by them! (Click the text to listen.)
Ramsey Lewis - Earth, Wind, and Fire recording of "Sun Goddess"
"Squid (Look All Around)" is a great example of a track that is so influenced by Earth, Wind, and Fire -- check it out
"Zanzibar" was one of the pure gems from this album by Earth, Wind, & Fire
EWF had the best brass arrangements! I could never match them, but "YET" comes pretty close. Thanks for listening...
