Earth, Wind And Fire Gratitude on Colored 180g 2LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso / Pressed at RTI
Originally recorded during Earth, Wind & Fire's 1974-1975 American tour, Gratitude brilliantly captures the excitement the band generated on stage at its creative peak. Neither hardcore fans nor more casual listeners should deprive themselves of the joys of the live versions of "Shining Star" and "Yearnin' Learnin'." Maurice White is magnificent throughout and Philip Bailey truly soars on extended versions of "Reasons" and "Devotion." The album also introduced some excellent new studio songs, including the haunting "Can't Hide Love" and the uplifting "Sing a Song." Gratitude shot straight to No. 1 on the pop charts in 1975 and to this day is one of Earth, Wind & Fire's finest achievements! Colored 180g double vinyl pressing from Friday Music, mastered by Joe Reagoso and manufactured at RTI.
