Earth, Wind & Fire has delivered more than its share of excellent albums, but if a person could own only one EWF release, the logical choice would be That's the Way of the World, which was the band's best album as well as its best-selling. Open Our Eyes had been a major hit and sold over half-a-million units, but it was World that established EWF as major-league, multi-platinum superstars. Fueled by gems ranging from the sweaty funk of "Shining Star" and "Yearnin' Learnin'" to the gorgeous ballad "Reasons" and the unforgettable title song, EWF's sixth album sold at least five-million units. And some of the tracks that weren't major hits, such as the exuberant "Happy Feelin'" and the gospel-influenced "See the Light," are equally powerful. There are no dull moments on World, one of the strongest albums of the '70s and EWF's crowning achievement.

James Brown's Golden Age

Between 1967 and 1974, the Godfather turned soul into funk. Flanked by the grooviest musicians of the day, James Brown orchestrated a soundtrack to changes in American society. And everyone jumped aboard the Sex Machine!

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

Motown, the sound of the young America

The label founded by Berry Gordy almost 60 years ago remains the last word on pop soul. A hit factory whose workers included Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Rick James, or the Temptations...
