DJ Grizz- Earth Wind & Fire Mix

After Fridays news of the sad passing of Maurice White, there was only ever going to be one mix to put up this morning... Earth Wind & Fire. Maurice was the vocalist, bandleader and producer of one of the greatest Soul bands of our time not to mention a prolific songwriter in his own right. Trying to pick a selection of their work to fit into just over 30 odd minutes was a hard ask but here are some of my favorites.

We start with a track from one of the defining Soul LP's of the 70's- 1979's 'I Am', theres the wicked dancer And Love Goes On from the 1980 LP 'Faces', EWF put some funk into the Beatles- Got To Get You Into My Life, renowned for their live shows I had to include the live version of Sun Goddess, of course there is Fantasy, and we end with a fitting tribute in Thats The Way Of The World.

Grizz- The Soul Mixtape Blog
1- In the stone
2- Getaway
3- And love goes on
4- Got to get you into my life
5- Sun goddess (live)
6-  Fantasy
7- Wanna be with you
8- Keep you head up in the sky
9- That’s the way of the world

SoulNRnB's Wonderful - Written by Stevie

The term "Musical Genius" gets banded about quite often nowadays, but if Steveland Morris never wrote another song, hes done enough to earn that title.

Id be foolish to think that anybody frequenting this blog hasn't heard (or owns) his solo work, so here is a collection of some of the songs he has written for others. Its by no means definitive, just a collection of some of my favorites.

With the likes of Smokey Robinson, Labelle, Quincy Jones and Roberta Flack to name a few, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did selecting it.

Grizz back at the weekend, dont forget to check out some exclusive mixes of mine on, see you next week!
