Earth, Wind & Fire

recorded at Lucca Summer Festival, Piazza Napoleone, Lucca (Italy), on tuesday 12 July 2016

for the first half an hour it's an incredibly funky set, tight and rhythmic, then come the ballads... I can't understand what snippets are part of the Boogie Wonderland medley, but NOT Jupiter or Yearnin' Learnin', or Sun Goddess...
Nicoletta Simeone racconta la performance degli EWF in una piazza Napoleone rovente che non ha mai smesso di ballare e tenere il ritmo con ogni parte del corpo. Il concerto di una band leggendaria, capace di fondere funk, soul e rhythm & blues in uno stile unico e perfettamente riconoscibile. Dagli esordi nei primi anni �70 a oggi, una storia di grandi successi, con milioni di dischi venduti e vari Grammy conquistati. A Lucca il gruppo di Chicago ha suonato i brani pi� celebri e amati del loro ricco repertorio, dimostrando ancora una volta di quanto il soul funk degli EWF continui ad essere attuale e fresco senza cadere nella trappola del revival.

note that due to disk space limitations, I will not be able to keep seeding this torrent for a long time - I will abandon the seed in a few days, maybe remove from HD these wav/flac files, and keep only my own CDR. Too many things to upload. In case of seeders going missing, enlist yourself as a leecher and some seeder will come back, and you are anyhow welcome to try and ask for additional torrenting...
checksum file included - if uploaded on other trackers or reseed (and you are welcome to do both), please include original infofile and also do not change FOLDER name. Also, if not satisfied with my offering, you are welcome to remaster/retrack/whatever and repost, but please always clearly state where/who did you have this material from and keep original infofile. IF YOU ARE THEN OFFERING THIS SET ON YOUR BLOG AS mp3's, PLEASE SPECIFY WHERE TO ALSO GET THE ORIGINAL LOSSLESS FILES
