I Am

Earth, Wind & Fire’s “I Am” (Columbia, 1979) is still one of my absolutely favorite releases from the middle/late 1970s. I am rediscovering it again via their “Complete Columbia Albums” (Sony/Columbia 2011) boxed set, but even before that arrived in this household in early 2014 (for next to nothing), it was one of those perfect pop albums that got so much rotation around here that I was afraid the previous two (re)issues I had might dissolve. It could have done without “Boogie Wonderland“, the one single track that shot it into the charts and the only one I am seriously tired of, but the rest is pure bliss … and perfection.
