FlinterFile: Earth, Wind & Fire- Sing A Song
When Earth, Wind & Fire had their breakthrough in 1975, they had to go on tour. During the tour, the guitarist Al McKay came up with a guitar riff in the dressing room. Maurice White wrote some simple lyrics to the riff, about the fun of singing. The song was recorded in the studio with a producer Maurice White still knew from the time he drummed as a studio musician: Charles Stephney. They recreated the old sound they played a lot on records like those from Etta James. The song would be on a double album, of which three sides were live tracks. The album would sell well (over 3 million times) and so did the single: it was a number 5 hit in the US. Enjoy
