Earth Wind & Fire: All 'N' All (CBS 86051)

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 31 January 1978

ANY ALBUM that can go straight into the American charts at No. 1 and sell more than two million in its first month can't be all bad, can it? Even before you get to the record, you're sure to be amazed and impressed by the creativity of the sleeve but as soon as the needle hits and the vibrant rhythms of 'Serpentine Fire' come stomping out, you know you're on to a surefire EW&F winner.
