Synopsis by Mark Deming
Blending the precise musicianship of jazz, the smooth melodies of R&B, and the blazing grooves of funk, Earth, Wind & Fire were one of the hottest and most acclaimed American bands of the 1970s and '80s, and the band still remains a major concert draw to this day. Earth, Wind & Fire: Live By Request preserves a special live television event presented in 1999 in which Earth, Wind & Fire played a set of their greatest hits as chosen by the fans viewing at home. Selections include "Shining Star," "September," "After the Love Is Gone," "Boogie Wonderland," "Serpentine Fire," and many more.
