"And that for not allowing these very imaginative video clips on their network for various racist reasons.The earliest of these clips are basically enhanced live performances up until 1980's 'Let Me Talk'-my favorite on this set that makes great use of the blue screen with floating images of symbols and people."Let's Groove" is a similarly colorful affair while "Fall In Love With Me" involves a colorful egyptian motif.The latter day videos like "Magnetic","System Of Survival" and "Evil Roy" deal with social commentary while "Thinking Of You" has a certain street charm.Sadly the video for "Heritage" is also here,from a time when EWF were trying to pander down to the new jacks.But even that video with it's positive message of empowerment is excellent."September 99" is better with a visually enhanced version of the original 1978 clip (also included earlier in the set) and a housish mix that's very faithful to the original.Even though the live footage is for the most part from the 1982 HBO concert that's commonly available the unseen live clip of "After The Love Has Gone" is a treat!But sadly,as I've said before today's blue and brown toned,shamelessly T&A oriented videos of Usher,Aguilara and others CANNOT HOLD A CANDLE to these examples of artful videography designed to do more then merely sell a product.No one outside of Outkast these days could even equal this accomplishment!"
Earth, Wind, & Fire-A Treat For Old School Music Lovers

"For over 30 years, Earth, Wind & Fire inspired generations of musicians with their unique blend of R&B, rock, jazz, funk, world music, and soul. Founded by multitalented musician Maurice White, the band found much success in 1970s with their eclectic sound and theatrical stage presence. While successful in drawing audiences in with extravagant costumes, the band never let their image overshadow their music. THE COLLECTION features videos and live performances of songs created during the years they were signed to Columbia Records. Songs include "Serpentine Fire," "Boogie Wonderland," and "September," among many others."
