I am a big fan of Earth, Wind & Fire and I'm not sure exactly when I became a fan. I have been sitting here trying to remember buying one of their records. I SAID RECORD...because that's what they were back then. I used to ride my bike to the store & buy 45's. Let me translate for young people. That is a single.
I know that I had Michael Jackson records. I know that I had Stevie Wonder records. I remember the 1st whole album that I bought with my Christmas money. But I really don't remember buying EWF records when I was younger. I know I loooved 'Serpentine Fire' & 'Devotion'. As I was thinking I thought well those came out when I was in elementary school. But even before I was allowed to ride my bike to the store, I went to the store with my parents & left the toy section to go look at records & buy 45's. So maybe I didn't appreciate them so much when their music was new. But I love them now.
I guess the fact that they have quite a few compilations & best of albums helped. I know that I was in my 30's looking all over for EWF in the record store. And my all time favorite song of theirs wasn't a single. It's not all over the internet like some of their songs. The reason I called this the Lead Foot Edition is because this is the song that I will blast in my car sing at the top of my off key lungs. And realize at the end of the song that I am speeding. (Kids don't try this at home, or on the highway. LOL)
On Your Face by EWF Sorry about that. The link should work now.
