Head to the Sky on SACD

Hybrid multi-channel SACD including multi-channel mix in SACD, surround quad and original two-channel stereo mixes in SACD stereo and CD stereo. 1973 release, the fourth album from the R&B superstars. Head To The Sky is a strong and highly spiritual collection, a tantalizing mixture of African rhythms, gospel-inflections, fusion, rock, tribal funk, improvisational jazz, and Latin rhythms. Earthy, ethereal, raw, and funky are just a few terms that describe this release. The recording contains a raw, improvisational quality, which makes it a treasure for fans of the classic EWF sound. It is also the first album where vocals took the lead over musical arrangements. This is not an album with blistering or muscular horn arrangements. Instead, the emphasis lies elsewhere. The vocals are breathy and soothing without being too ethereal; altogether, they sound like a cosmic choir. This album is the step off point from where Earth Wind & Fire went from being largely a gravel raw soul/funk band into one that had a certain type of slickness and smoothness in the production. Head To The Sky was a perfect setup for the commercial breakthrough which was to come with the next album.
