Interlude, No. 2
Gratitude is one of two classic albums E.W.F. released in 1975, and it's essentially a victory lap for the first, That's the Way of the World, which made them the biggest black rock band in the world. The first three-quarters of Gratitude consist of live material, including memorable renditions of "Devotion," "Reasons" and the nine-minute fusion exploration "New World Symphony." The last quarter finds E.W.F. honing their unique take on funk and pop rock with studio recordings "Sunshine" and the title track, and the radio hits "Can't Hide Love" and "Sing a Song."
