5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia for 70's parties, 30 May 2005
By

This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Way back in the 70's, house parties were all the rage in my circle of friends, and on a Saturday night, everybody would gather at someone's house, invited or not, to party the night away.
The dance floor would usually be in the garage, or patio and the music would be in sets of "fast" music, such as disco, funk or calypso/soca, and "slow" music, which of course became the hold-me-tight session. Often, a couple would stay on one spot for the whole session, which was lovingly referred to as "rent-a-tile".
The reason for this rambling is to explain why this album is a must have for baby boomers who danced away the 70's and 80's. Earth, Wind & Fire are, after all, the three elements in the astrological charts, and their music symbolizes the spirit of those happy times.
The album contains their first two hit songs from the album "Open Our Eyes" which went gold with "Mighty Mighty" and "Kalimba Story", and also their follow up hits "That's the Way of the World", "Shining Star" and "Reasons", which has been widely copied since then. It's also got their hits from 1975's "Gratitude", 1976's "Spirit", and 1977's "All n' All", which produced my all time favorite "Fantasy" and also "Serpentine Fire". Throw in "Boogie Wonderland" and "After the Love is Gone" and 1981's "Let's Groove", and you can understand why this compilation would be a 70's/80's party staple.
Since my favorites are "Fantasy", "Reasons", and "After the Love is Gone", you can probably tell that I rented many tiles during the late 70's and early 80's. This album brings back the warm and fuzzies of those days.
