Ohio Players – Fire

The funkiest album that I had at this time and still one of the funkiest, Ohio Players Fire is a classic from beginning to end. The title track was a big hit that sold over one million copies and is probably recognizable by everyone, but other songs like I Want To Be Free show how much soul the band could display alongside terrific musicianship. One of two Ohio Players released in 1974 (following Skin Tight), Fire continued the band’s streak of successful albums and features songs that display their many talents and a trademark gatefold photo.
