Supreme Ali : this what we listened to in the 70s. REAL music by REAL Brothas. Nothin' artificial about it.

Perry Bromwell : This should be a standard Music, Education, History requirement for all, especially Afr-Am, Latin youth in the arts!

sthpac69 : Notice that the females have clothes on because the band is something to watch vs today when all the women on stage is a cover for the non talent guy up there rapping.

Guillaume Bougard : the greatest group ever

ed ubinas : Verdine White probably one of the baddest if not the baddest bassist in the history of pop music

Ricky Spicer : Maurice White, Master mind visionary much love to him! R.I.P brother.

mano a mano : Everybody lean, limber and beautiful. Times have changed.

Dom Xem : Before they were great they were fantastic

MsIvory Seattle : THIS WAS THE SOUND OF 73... CONGA'S...

obvi•US : 0:00 Power 8:40 I Don't Want To Be Lonely Tonight 15:00 Bass Jam 19:37 Mom 25:38 Time Is On Your Side

FWCC1 : This is what you call A REAL BAND

Allen C. : The sound of early 70's was like everyone wanted to communicate through "music" and say something profoundly. EWF did it, as exceptional as, it can be done. Just wow, what a great band.

sam powell : Great to see this early incarnation of EWF thanks for posting. They certainly evolved from here sonically but the soul and spirit are evident.

msmusicmaestro61 : Wow I had never heard this one before. Now we going back to 1973. Those costumes and the guitar sounds are something man.

doodleedledoo : This is one of the most amazing versions of Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight.

Reginald Styles : THE YOUNG ELEMENTS OF THE UNIVERSE, GREATEST GROUP EVER EARTH WIND AND FIRE!

remiem6070 : This post is priceless! Thank you!

Marcus Reeves : PERHAPS THE 324 PEOPLE WHO HIT THE THUMBS DOWN BUTTON ARE THE WATER SIGNS,SINCE YALL WAS LEFT OUT OF EARTH,WIND AND FIRE.I'M JUST SAYING.

Prometheus C All : The GreateST BAnd EVer. . .

Matthew A Trimble : I had the pleasure to experience Energy live on stage with the Earth Wind & 🔥 fire what a experience

Butch E : BTW, Verdine White was taught to play the upright bass before joining his brother Maurice White who was the drummer for the "Ramsey Lewis Trio" ("The In Crowd) fame back in the late 60's.

Steven Spirito : How did we go from tight bands like EWF making incredible music to the crap RAP and HIP HOP that's jammed down our childrens throats today??

DringBR : I did not get into EWF until around 1975 when they had forged more of their own distinctive sound. This earlier version with the female vocalist reminds me a little of early Santana and also the group Mandrill, both of whom explored the Afro-Latin thing, although Mandrill never enjoyed the success of EWF. Don't forget about Osibisa whose members were from both African and Caribbean. Believe it or not, even early Kool and the Gang (before their '80s radio hits) were very influenced by Mongo Santamaria. All these groups shared similarities in the early '70s.

sierra6588 : Beautiful uber-talented people!!!! RIP amazing Maurice White <3

Hatshepsut Kemet : I was born in 74 the first music I ever heard and remember was EWF. My dad had every album and I knew every song as a young child lol

kuricoco mini : Maurice's Kalimba play is cool and sexy and sounds wonderful.♥💓😍

Adiel Ben Judah : Maurice White and Verdine were musical genius'!

Jeff C : Tears to this white boy's eyes... Just incredible. True musicians.

MILES ONEAL : This barely begins to capture their energy in 73! I saw them in 73 at Ga Tech, sandwiched between Tucky Buzzard (I mainly recall their name), and Uriah Heep. EWF blew the roof off the coliseum. At one point Verdine jumped down into the crowd and danced his way through it as he played. He eventually ended up dancing with a woman in the audience and (IIRC) even giving her a looooong kiss- all without missing a beat. And this was well before wireless rigs; he had a 100 foot cord, at least. Amazing. They were as much fun to watch as they were to listen to.

Esther Gavillet : Thank you! Shared on G+ in "Remembering **Maurice White** December 19, 1941-February 4, 2016.

Scott Roy : Too bad they left water out. He sort of got left in the dust when the other elements let the fame go to their heads.

Summer Breeze : The Greatest Group EVER!!! The sound of the elements....

DTWrites1 : One of the greatest groups ever! EWF still sounds great during their live performances. Will always remember when I caught them live in Hawaii years ago. What a concert!
