That's the Way of the World
More people heard this classic soundtrack than saw the awful 1975 Harvey Keitel flick. As Earth, Wind & Fire's first No. 1 album, it marked artistic and commercial peaks in Maurice White's songwriting and the nine-man-strong band's musicianship, from hits like "Shining Star" and the title track to expansive album cuts such as the big-band funkin' "Yearnin', Learnin'," the effortlessly breezy "Happy Feelin'," and the brassy instrumental "Africano." Listen to the very end of "All About Love" for an indelible minute-long solo from Larry Dunn.
