Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Beauty” From Their 1971 Album The Need Of Love

From Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1971 release The Need Of Love, here’s the track “Beauty.”

Maurice:
During this time we were working on our second album, The Need of Love. Once more, the record was a very jazz-psycho-funk affair, with only five songs: “Energy,” “Beauty,” “I Can Feel It In My Bones,” “I Think About Lovin’ You,” and “Everything Is Everything.” On both of our Warner albums Jean Carne added her wonderful voice to the background vocals, even though she wasn’t credited.
