Today we remember the late Maurice White, founder of Earth, Wind & Fire, who died yesterday at the age of 74.
Originally released in November of 1978, The Best of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. 1 is a ten-track collection of the group's best and biggest singles up to that point. The album also included two new tracks for the band: a cover of the Beatles's song "Got to Get You Into My Life" and the original track "September", both of which also became charting singles, the former also winning a Grammy Award.
