from IN THE STONE (single)
written by Maurice White, David Foster & Allee Willis
“In The Stone” was one of the bigger triumphs in Earth, Wind & Fire’s stunning catalogue. The song was co-written in 1978 by the band’s leader, the late, great Maurice White (December 19, 1941 to February 4, 2016), with David Foster and lyricist Allee Willis. This catchy, feel-good mid-tempo was included in Earth, Wind & Fire’s milestone I Am album. “In The Stone” was total joy for the most trained music lovers because it had a masterful arrangement, crafted by White and Foster, top-notch vocal and instrumental performances, pristine production, a rousing refrain and a groove delivered with various time changes.
