Groovy Flashback: TIME Covers 1960 - 1969

So let's continue with 23 covers from the 1960s (click here to see covers from 1923 to 1959):

Lyricist and librettist Alan Jay Lerner & composer Frederick Loewe (Camelot on Broadway) - November 14, 1960


First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy - January 20, 1961


Sophia Loren (Two Women) - April 6, 1962

Remembering Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White 1941 - 2016



Singer-songwriter Maurice White, who died Thursday at age 74, founded the band Earth, Wind & Fire in 1969 and received seven Grammy Awards. From 1966 to 1969, he performed as a drummer with the Ramsey Lewis Trio. And he was a record producer of many albums, including Deniece Williams' This Is Niecy (1976), the Emotions' Rejoice (1977), Jennifer Holliday's Feel My Soul (1983), Barbra Streisand's Emotion (1984) and Neil Diamond's Headed for the Future (1986).

In 2006, White co-wrote several new songs for the Broadway jukebox musical, Hot Feet, which featured the music of Earth, Wind & Fire. And as a member of the band, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.

To celebrate Maurice White's life and career, I've selected some of Earth, Wind & Fire's groovy tunes for you to enjoy:
