Now Then & Forever

CD (Item 767053) Sony, 2013 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

A mindblowingly good album from Earth Wind & Fire – one of the best we've heard from them in years, and a set that really lives up to all the faith we've had in the group over the years! The sound is right on the money – from performance to production – with a vibe that really links the record to their best work at the end of the 70s, but with a freshness that shows that the group's vision and spirit are still moving forward in the 21st Century! We honestly weren't expecting anything this great – and we're pleased as punch at the way the set sparkles wonderfully with each new track – served up with vocals mostly by Phillip Bailey, in the core trio with Ralph Johnson and Verdine White – all working here with plenty of help from a larger ensemble of players who really get the classic sound just right. The whole thing's overflowing with positive energy – and titles include "Love Is Law", "Belo Horizonte", "Splashes", "The Rush", "Night Of My Life", "My Promise", "Guiding Lights", and "Sign On".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Gratitude (Japanese pressing)
Sony (Japan), 1975. Used
Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1983. Used
The title's no joke, as Earth Wind & Fire are definitely part of the electric universe of early 80s Columbia Records – the galaxy that also includes Herbie Hancock during his electro years! As a result, there's a lot more keyboards and electric rhythms in the set than before – a ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. Used
A great little album of tracks by one of the 70s greatest soul groups – featuring material from mostly their late 70s years at Columbia, plus a few other ringers thrown into mix it up a bit. Features the slow jam classic "After The Love Is Gone", the disco groover "Boogie ... CD
CBS, 1975. Used
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, ... CD

Columbia, Mid 70s. Used
Fantastic stuff through and through – and almost a "best of" best of collection from the 70s! The album's a key illustration of the genius of Earth Wind & Fire on Columbia Records – because by the time the set was released in 1978, most of the tracks were already well-know ... CD

Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1978. Used
Great grooves from MFSB – a set that shows the continuing sophistication that Gamble & Huff were bringing to their music – even at a time when they could have just laid back and kept on churning out the same sort of sound! The style here is similar to the early MFSB – an ... CD

Think what you want – we think this is a damn great soul album! Sure, the record was a crossover classic that got played to death back in the 80s – but give it a listen now, and you'll be stunned to hear how fresh it sounds, and how much it reminds you of all the British soul acts that ... CD

An album that's bound to be the stuff of debates for years to come – the last material recorded in the studio by Michael Jackson, formed into an album after his death!
