Earth, Wind & Fire: The Eternal Dance (1992)

EWF eternal danceBy Scott Goldfine

Earth, Wind & Fire, the spiritual R&B ensemble that etched a pop legacy with a steady stream of hits in the 1970s and early 1980s, is featured on the three-CD retrospective “The Eternal Dance.” Spanning 1971-1987, this collection shows EWF’s unmistakable soprano harmonies and uncommon skill for rhythm and melody.

Diehards may cite some minor omissions, but that hardly diminishes this indispensable set.
