1972 Reissue Features "Make It With You!" And "Power!"

Last Days and Time is the third studio album by American R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire, released in 1972, their debut album on Columbia Records. It was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood, California, with founder and multi-instrumentalist Maurice White, Verdine White and Philip Bailey.

Due to their live performances it cemented their status as the main funk band and set the stage for the band's blockbuster breakthrough. Songs on the album like "Make It With You" (originally from Bread) the pre-"Brazilian Rhyme" powerful funk sax style "Power", (which sounds like an early version of "Serpentine Fire") and "Remember The Children" are excellent examples of the great songs and albums they have made during their career.

"Earth, Wind & Fire were nothing if not ambitious, and by the time of their third album they had forged an individual sound by absorbing nearly everything that had gone before them in the previous ten years. It was as if they were trying to encapsulate every eclectic foray pursued by Motown, from catchy, rhythmic pop to churning funk, and even from Stevie Wonder singing borrowed folk songs like 'Blowin' in the Wind' (here, Philip Bailey did 'Where Have All the Flowers Gone') to the schmaltzy, string-filled pop that spelled legitimacy to Motown. Not only that, they wanted to incorporate Sly & the Family Stone's horn-filled, gutbucket R&B and some of the fusion style of Weather Report." - William Ruhlmann,
