by: Earth, Wind & Fire

September is a two-disc Earth, Wind & Fire compilation that was released through Columbia in Germany. Since Essential Earth, Wind & Fire -- a stateside set -- covers roughly the same ground while containing nine more songs, it won't be of much use to anyone elsewhere. While "September," "Let's Groove," "Getaway," "Boogie Wonderland," "Fantasy," "Shining Star," and "Reasons" are included, there are too many gaps for the release to be recommendable. In fact, the band's first five albums are all but completely ignored (no "That's the Way of the World," "Mighty Mighty," "Evil," or "Keep Your Head to the Sky"). ~ Andy Kellman
