The Los Angeles Times called the album “An excellent package with no extraneous or weak tracks”.[17] Steve Huey of AllMusic said “But even if it’s an incomplete hits collection, The Best of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. 1 still ranks as a strong encapsulation of EWF the funk innovators. The singles gathered here constitute some of the richest, most sophisticated music the funk movement ever produced; when the absolute cream of the group’s catalog is heard in such a concentrated fashion, the effect is dazzling.” Huey added “1998’s Greatest Hits now stands as the definitive single-disc EWF overview, but for the budget-minded and the disco-phobic, this still makes for an excellent listen.”[13] Robert Christgau of The Village Voice found “Despite some annoying omissions, notably “Serpentine Fire,” this sums them up–ten exquisitely crafted pop tunes in which all the passion and resonance of black music tradition are blended into a concoction slicker and more sumptuous than any white counterpart since Glenn Miller”.[14] The New York Daily News also claimed “Since its beginning, Earth Wind and Fire have been one of the slickest soul aggregations around, and this record is a well-paced showcase. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that the combination of influences, ranging from Sly Stone and Stevie Wonder to the decidedly Chicagoesque horn arrangements, doesn’t overcome the group, but its high spirits continually take it over the top. “.[18] Crispin Cioe of High Fidelity wrote “For pop/r&b mavens, this one’s a must.”[16]
