This release in the Original Album Classics
series features five full-lengths -- albums six through ten overall -- from Earth, Wind & Fire: That's the Way of the World
(1976), All 'N All
(1977), and I Am
(1979). The discs are identical to the 2001 reissues, and the set retailed for a price significantly less than the sum of the five discs sold separately -- a nice bargain for those who are looking to pick up a handful of good to classic late-'70s R&B albums. A second five-disc EW&F Original Album Classics
box was released in 2011 and bundled earlier and later Columbia albums from the band.
