John Abbey meets Earth Wind and Fire's Verdine White
John Abbey, Blues & Soul, September 1975
SO BRITAIN has finally tasted the elements. Earth Wind & Fire, nine piece California-based self-contained band/group, have been described by most American music journalists at some time or another as America's most exciting 'live' act. Perhaps the only unfortunate side of their recent European tour — believe it or not, they were support act to Santana — is that soul folk didn't really get too many opportunities to witness the excitement.
