That's The Way Of The WorldMastered by Kevin Gray and Robert Pincus from the Original Analog Master Tapes
Numbered Limited Edition of Only 2500 Copies
Ranked 493/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
OK, so it's disco sound, but it's really good. Whoever says that today must have been pretty lively on their feet in the 70s and 80s and in the days of their youth they will definitely have noticed that the commercial fusion music they listened to on a Saturday night was buzzing with energy and excitement. Earth, Wind & Fire considered their amazing mix of Latin, Gospel, Soul, Funk and dynamic horn section as being of existential importance. This was the album that would either make or break the band: either they would establish themselves or they would sink into oblivion like so many other rhythm and blues acts.
The basic recipe - finely chiselled Latin beat, meaty bass grooves and sizzling funky improvisations, spiced with the sound of exotic instruments - works perfectly. Furthermore, crowned with a beautifully airy falsetto and relaxed harmonious singing, the band created a big-band sound that the magazine Rolling Stone described as »innovative yet popular, precise yet sensual, calculated yet galvanizing«. Almost two decades later, and with more than three million albums sold in the USA alone, the editorial team voted the LP into their list of the '500 Greatest Albums of All Time'. And about time too! At last today's ravers and rappers also get the opportunity to experience the great rhythms to which their daddies danced.

Harry Belafonte has always been a musical chameleon. Using a thick base of folk music, he added blues, soul, jazz, pop and a plethora of various Caribbean styles to create albums that were unique, socially relevant and just plain fun.
Nowhere is his broad, encompassing vision more in effect than on his 1962 release The Many Moods of Belafonte. From the Appalachian miner ballad Dark as a Dungeon through Hebrew lullaby Lyla, Lyla and even a Broadway ballad (Try To Remember from The Fantastiks), there's a little something for everyone. Belafonte himself seems inspired by these tunes, singing with gusto on the fun tracks and with reverential tact on the darker, more emotional material.
Impex Records now presents in association with Audio International in Germany The Many Moods of Belafonte in an exclusive all-analog 45-rpm 2-LP set. Cut by Kevin Gray from original analog tapes and pressed at RTI, every nuance of RCA's Bob Simpson big stage recording shines through your system.
