AllMusic Review by

This Original Album Classics, released three years after another Earth, Wind & Fire set with the same title, contains Last Days and Time (1972), Head to the Sky (1973), Open Our Eyes (1974), Faces (1980), and Powerlight (1983) -- the group’s first, second, third, eighth, and tenth albums for Columbia. (The first Original Album Classics gathered That's the Way of the World, Gratitude, Spirit, All 'n All, and I Am.) This is a cheap way to get some (but nowhere near close to all) of Earth, Wind & Fire's most successful material, including “Evil,” “Mighty Mighty,” “Let Me Talk,” and “Fall in Love with Me.” Completists who expect to obtain all the Columbia albums from the two sets will still need Raise! (1981), Electric Universe (1983), Touch the World (1987), and Heritage (1990).
