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.
