They delivered a sparkling performance featuring a string of classic hits including "Saturday Nite", "September", "Let's Groove", "Fantasy", "Devotion", "After the Love Is Gone", "Shining Star", "Can't Hide Love" and "Boogie Wonderland". As a bonus, also included here are seven additional tracks from the band's equally fine return performance in 1998.|

Editor's NoteEarth, Wind & Fire were as renowned for their lavish, spectacle-driven live performances as they were for their infectious blend of funk, soul, R&B, disco, jazz, rock, and African music. Formed in 1969 Chicago by songwriter Maurice White, the band went through as many lineup changes as they did musical genres, eventually disbanding in the 1980s and launching many a solo career (most notably, that of lead singer Philip Bailey). This concert captures Earth, Wind & Fire in a concert reunion at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1997, performing a career-spanning parade of classics that includes "Saturday Nite," "September," "After the Love is Gone," "Shining Star," "Sing a Song," and many more.
