All' N All 'is the eighth album of Earth, Wind & Fire and also one of the best known. The album contains the R & B hit singles "Fantasy" and "Serpentine Fire" and the ballad "I'll Write A Song For You "sung by Phillip Bailey." Everything 'N All' reached the dry double platinum status and won a Grammy for Best R & B vocals. The song 'Runnin' has won 1978 a Grammy Award for best R & B instrumental. The album has been remastered and contains three bonus tracks.
The title track, "I Feel for You" was a cover of a 1979 Prince track, featuring Grandmaster Melle Mel on the classic "Ch-ch-ch-chaka-chaka-chaka Khan" rap intro and Stevie Wonder on chromatic harmonica (and also a sample from one of his first hits, "Fingertips.") Besides the title track’s meteoric impact were nine other fantastic songs. Any album as dominated by dance tracks as ‘I Feel For You’ is usually brought to an unqualified dead end by its obligatory ballads, but both “Stronger Than Before” (Bacharach-Bayer-Sager) and “Through The Fire” legitimate high points in Chaka’s solo career. A real classic feel to this album and it still sounds fresh.

Candi Staton had been lacking a comprehensive collection of her prime Southern R&B material from her glory years, 1969-1973. Like Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding, Staton's voice is the sound of emotion being ripped from the human heart and offered, bleeding and broken, pleading and yearning, to the listener. Check out her take on "Stand By Your Man," her ethereal Grammy-nominated interpretation of "In the Ghetto" or the soul standard "That's How Strong My Love Is" to see the power and the glory that this collection represents.
