Last Days and Time is the third studio album by American R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire, released in 1972, their debut album on Columbia Records. It was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood, California, with founder and multi-instrumentalist Maurice White, Verdine White and Philip Bailey. Due to their live performances it cemented their status as the main funk band and set the stage for the band's blockbuster breakthrough. Songs on the album like "Make It With You" (originally from Bread) the pre-"Brazilian Rhyme" powerful funk sax style "Power", (which sounds like an early version of "Serpentine Fire") and "Remember The Children" are excellent examples of the great songs and albums they have made during their career.

'All things wonderful about Sly And The Family Stone in the first years of their existence came together on their 1969 album Stand!. The enthusiasm, the blurring of lines, the testing of boundaries; it all blends together in the Funk of the Family Stone.  Stand! is one of those records that came to define the flower power generation; the activism in "Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey", the psychedelic pulsating dance rhythms in "I Want To Take You Higher", the spirit of belonging in "Everyday People". Stand! is perhaps one of the most sampled records in Hip Hop and R&B. This is the pinnacle of Sly And The Family Stone's career, and it has a rightful place in music history.
