About the Artist

Earth, Wind & Fire, the R&B-Pop-Soul band from Chicago, have produced quite a number of hits during the 1970's and early 1980's. The biggest hits were 'September', 'Boogie Wonderland', 'After the Love Has Gone', 'Let's Groove' and 'Fantasy'. 'I Am', originally released in 1979, features 'Boogie Wonderland' (featuring the vocals of The Emotions), which became one of the most popular disco and cross-over hits of that time and hit ballad 'After the Love Has Gone'. Afraid to be labeled 'Discoband', Verdine White stated 'we might have partied, but we didn't dance!'. Having sold over 90 million albums worldwide and winning 6 Grammy Awards, the African-American band is ranked on the list of best-selling music artists. Main musical elements of EWF, led by founder Maurice White, are African and Latin American influences, mixed with funk, soul & pop with hints of rock and jazz. 'I Am' is a good testimony to the solid combination of the band's vocal strength and instrumental backup. --This text refers to the Vinyl edition.

EWF laid out an abundance of great classic albums during the 70s, 80s and even into the 90s but this one here's my favourite of them all. It's probably because it's the first EWF album I ever bought. I remember seeing all the happy people on "Soul Train" dancing to "In The Stone" back in the day and falling immediately in love with their sound. I got the record shortly after and have been an EWF fan ever since. 1979 was a really good year for music.

As I suppose most folk know already, back then, EWF were the quintessential band, complete with vocalists, rhythm section and horns. I just adore the sound of Maurice White's voice. Philip Bailey's I can take or leave but I do admit the two voices complement each other incredibly well. The album had quite a number of hits: apart from "In The Stone", there's "After The Love Has Gone" - the full-length version with its fabulous sax solos in the middle and at the end - and "Boogie Wonderland", the song they did with their backing vocal trio The Emotions - who already had a very successful career in their own right, if only for a minute. (Their 1977 classic "Rejoice" containing evergreens like "Best Of My Love" and "Don't Ask My Neighbors" is simply unmissable, IMHO)

Produced by White, every song on this disc is a winner. They are excellently produced and arranged, and they exemplify how an album is supposed to be made - all the songs flow nicely into one another - but I do have my favourites: "In The Stone", "Can't Let Go", "After The Love Is Gone", the instrumental "Rock That!" and "You And I". This is a great album to sing along to and it always cheers me up whenever I'm feeling down.

I Am

Best Album by far from the legendary EARTH WIND & FIRE

Just Buy It - Sit Back & Enjoy.

This being one of EWF's finer albums, just proves that after ten years of hard work and a decade of black music transformation, that Earth, Wind & Fire were one of the finest African-American groups of the 1970's. "I Am" is the first album of their 70's collection that waited two years of release since their previous release "All `N' All" (1977).

This 1979 release contains a mixture of spiritual grooves that capture the life of the listener and the times past, a sensation of get-up-and-dance waves of music collaboration, profound romanticism and a well composed production with the aid of a very consistent nine-piece band.

"I Am" is the no 1, album. If you're an Earth, Wind & Fire fan, you already know what I'm talking about, and if you just want to dance, open your heart to love and fantasy, this album is the CD that you will need in your stereo, playing every day. This is the first of the commercial-original compositions, and boy, did they do a good job!

Tracklist:
1. "In The Stone"
2. "Can't Let Go"
3. "After the Love Has Gone"
4. "Let Your Feelings Show"
5. "Boogie Wonderland" (feat. The Emotions)
6. "Star"
7. "Wait"
8. "Rock That!"
9. "You And I"

Release Date: 1979

This is one of my all time favourites, if not the favourite. We start with probably the greatest album intro of all time 'In the Stone', the splash of the cymbal brings in the horns and strings and away we go. We then go into 'Can't Let Go' which maintains the pace and the quality. 'After the Love is Gone follows as a classic heartache ballad with the evocative Don Merrick sax solo giving 'Bird' a run for his money as usual. 'Let your feelings show' will test out your stereo widening as horns and strings race between the speakers, a cracking piece of funk. Next its the classic 'Boogie Wonderland', impossible to keep still to. More mid-tempo is 'Star' and what a wonderful beginning with Larry Dunn keyboards playing off the strings and ending with a snorting trumpet solo. 'Wait' and 'You and I' are two of the last three tracks and are smashing ballads. 'Wait' aches with longing for Maurice's loved one who obviously is not around or unavaliable, but will be. 'You and I' finishes off the album nicely, perhaps a follow up song to Wait. 'Rock That!' does exactly what it says on the tin. Steve Lutaker of Toto puts in a cracking bit of guitar to a frenetic funk work out that is irresitible, get on that ONE. i have the version with 'Diana' as a bonus track, it's definitely worth it and fits a great album.

As I put on the CD, 'In The Stone', which is famous for it's trumpet intro, an excellent song to begin the album, follewed by an nice interlude, into 'can't let go', an up tempo, funky, excellent. Next 'after the love has gone', earth wind and fire's most famous ballad, and one of their best, finishing with a sax solo wich enters itself into 'let your feeling show', earth wind and fire at their best. To follow this, the classic 'Boogie Wonderland', with the emotions, this disco hit doens't reflect earth wind and fire half as well as the other songs on the album, but still good for a dance :-)
To follow this the excellent 'Star', and then 'wait', which is farly slow, followed by the speedy, instrumental 'rock that', and to finish the album off, 'you and I', which in my humble opinion, is one of the best slow songs ever written.
