The best of Earth, Wind, & Fire all in one exclusive bundle!
15 newly mastered CDS encompasing their astonising recording career on Columbia Records

Plus a bonus disk of rarities, instrumentals and unreleased tracks

Supervised by EW&F's founder and spiritual guide Maurice White

16 great albums on 16 CDs!

Each individual album is packaged in a replica mini-LP sleeve reproducing that album’s original cover art.


Earth, Wind & Fire's horn-powered hit machine represents the best in pop melodies, harmonizing voices, funky syncopation and rhythms of the world.

During their heyday in the Seventies, they became one of music's most beloved groups with catchy songs like "September," "Shining Star," "Let's Groove," "Boogie Wonderland," "Sing a Song," "Can't Hide Love," "Reasons" and "After the Love Is Gone."

Earth, Wind & Fire was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, and The Columbia Masters demonstrates why the group became the soundtrack for 20th century American life.

The set — personally supervised by the group's founder and spiritual guide Maurice White — includes:

15 of the band's classic albums, newly mastered for superior sound. Original LP jackets, meticulously reproduced.
A 40-page booklet with photos and commentary by Maurice White. The Columbia Masters also features a newly compiled bonus disk with: two unreleased tracks from the Touch the World sessions; two scintillating live performances ("Getaway" and "In the Stone") recorded in Rio de Janeiro in 1980; rare instrumental versions of "Let's Groove" and "Boogie Wonderland" (with The Emotions); Maurice White's unmistakable productions for Neil Diamond, Ramsey Lewis, Jennifer Holiday and Barbra Streisand.

All 'N All, Best of Earth, Wind & Fire Vol. 1, I Am,
