    EW&F are my favorites. Phillip Bailey is amazing. I also chose Mint Condition, great taste as usual. 🙂

    Oh yes! Love it. Earth, Wind & Fire is great and the ladies of The Emotions were just an excellent addition to this performance. I have always just loved this song. It always gets my spirits up. And as Shae said, Phillip Bailey is amazing and so is Maurice White. A true classic! And I love Mint Condition too…it surely takes me back. Happy weekend to you! 🙂

    Oh, Regina, thanks so much for the Boogie Wonderland!!!! You are so right – those costumes were “bitchen” and this was disco at it’s best!I went with one of my very favorite songs ever: The Turtles singing Happy Together in 1967Happy OSF.
