The end was near for Earth, Wind And Fire
. This wasn't quite the disaster it was made out to be at the time, but it was their least distinguished overall album since the early days on Warner Bros., with the exception of the disastrous Sgt. Pepper episode. "Let's Groove" was just a recycled mid-tempo tune from the mid-'70s, and everything else sounded desultory and uninspired. It was no surprise that after one more album, White
and company decided to take some time away from the scene.
