4.0 out of 5 stars war hits December 5, 2010
By pat o
Format:Audio CD
It appears to me this is essentially a repackaging of the original "WAR- GREATEST HITS" with the addition of "SPILL THE WINE"..(LONG VERSION)...........and 'GALAXY( SINGLE VERSION) . it includes the 6.39 minute version of "summer" just like 'GREATEST HITS"..........bottom line is, you need to pick up the original albums to get the long version of most of the songs.........but in the meantime- i like this better than "BEST OF WAR AND MORE".............

5.0 out of 5 stars classic War December 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
War is the kind of Band who could do it all. broke down genres and did there thing period. classic songs, albums and you can appreciate what they did many,many,many years ago. they should have been put in the Rock and Roll of Fame easily before some corny head jive turkeys like the Beastie Boys as well and I agree with War where is the Musical Justice? when you hear these songs here, you can hear War's influence on so many latter day acts, etc.. very talented well rounded band. regardless of there circumnstances and what have you, the War name belongs in the Hall and acknowledged to the fullest.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent CD March 30, 2011
By Terand
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is classic War that fills the void in my collection. I had purchased later albums of War already, but wanted some of their older, first hits. This CD is an excellent compilation of War's early popular songs like "The Cisco Kid," "Southern Part of Texas," "Me And Baby Brother," (a Soul Train dance hit) and "Summer." Thank-you to the distributors for releasing this collection on CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great blend of street jams! August 2, 2013

War was a one of a kind Afro-Caribbean funk band that had an English front man for a spell. I opted to get the best of and was happy I did! Super fun and funky!

3.0 out of 5 stars Memorable hits and other tunes October 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
War came out hard with Eric Burdon and then became something of a jazz latino group with instrumentals at times, hits are here and they bring back memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS MEANS WAR...! September 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
WAR-THE HITS: Surprisingly, this is the first CD collection to gather up virtually every one of WAR's organic jazz-funk-rock hits on a single platter; previous efforts including THE BEST OF WAR AND MORE wrongly omitted stone classics like GYPSY MAN and THE WORLD IS A GHETTO in favor of filler. The 2010 release THE HITS unfurls eleven of their even dozen Top 40 singles, in blessed chronological order to boot; the lively instrumental BELLARO is the only missing hit. It's not easy to pick highlights from a band this consistent, but their spicy ERIC BURDON collaboration SPILL THE WINE, the reflective chant SLIPPIN' INTO DARKNESS, and the disco-laced final chart entry GALAXY are all powerful contenders. WAR was a democracy, with everyone sharing vocal and songwriting duties...PAPA DEE ALLEN's expressive percussion workouts, LEE OSKAR's slinky harmonica blasts and CHARLES MILLER's sublime woodwinds were but three important components of the band's unique rhythmic vibe. In leiu of the more comprehensive, but more expensive double disc set THE VERY BEST OF WAR, THE HITS is exactly what it says...which is all casual fans of this street-smart, celebratory ensemble will need to get their jam on.

RATING: FOUR JAM BANDS
