The Best of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. 1 is the definitive chronicle of Earth, Wind & Fire’s reign as innovative soul-funk hitmakers in the 1970s. Originally released in 1978, this multi-platinum collection features 10 unforgettable hits including “Shining Star,” “Sing a Song,” “Getaway” and “Fantasy,” plus three exclusive tracks including a Grammy-winning cover of The Beatles’ “Got to Get You Into My Life” and the immortal dance floor hit “September,” a Top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic. This new 12” picture vinyl edition, featuring the original album’s classic cover emblem plus a die-cut insert, will be released exclusively for Record Store Day Black Friday. – Press Release

“When it was originally released in 1978, The Best of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. 1 was a succinct, ten-track collection of the group's best and biggest singles up to that point. The excellent "September," a brand-new song, soon became a hit in its own right, and the non-LP Beatles cover "Got to Get You into My Life," recorded for the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film, also makes its first appearance on an EWF album here, as does the track "Love Music."…

The singles gathered here constitute some of the richest, most sophisticated music the funk movement ever produced; when the absolute cream of the group's catalog is heard in such a concentrated fashion, the effect is dazzling.” – Allmusic
