Poor video and audio.

What people forget is Lonnie started this group and has kept it going so we can enjoy it.

I WAS WORRIED THAT THIS WOULD BE BAD. Usually "Greatest Hits" live albums contain bad, short versions of the hits. The studio versions are typically better. But, the songs are all stretched out and played in new and interesting ways.

I WAS WORRIED THAT THE BAND WOULD BE LAME. The only original member of the band was Lonnie Jordan. Only one other member of the group, Sal Rodriguez, had been with the band more than 10 years. I thought that this would either be like a tribute band, or that the musicians would not really be into the songs. In groups like this, with only one orginal member, the backup guys don't really sound like belong in the band and just throw in solos here and there. But, in this case, the band sounds very cohesive.

It is a concert video, so it includes all of the chit chat. That isn't good for a CD, but I think it is appropriate for DVD where you want to get a feel for the concert. It is kind of embarrassing to see the audience, and then have the less than attractive women come up on stage and dance. But, this is a 40 year old band with 60 year old fans.

The filming and editing of the concert was very well done. It was not like many of the videos today where the camera is always zooming in and out, with all the quick cuts.

The audio quality is also very good. The one thing I don't like is that when you play the concert in 5.1 sound the audience is too loud. Also, if you do track selection, you can not choose select the audio setup (stereo or 5.1).

There aren't any bonus features.

I absolutely LOVE WAR music and I am just one of WAR's most devoted fans. That is why I was fortunate enough to not have bought into the hype of this DVD and waste my money on this karaoke version of WAR. It's too bad that ALL the OG's of WAR can't be together as WAR, but that is not the doings of the 4 remaining OG's of WAR, now the LOWRIDER BAND, because THEIR WAR name and copywrites were stolen from them by Jerry Golddigger, WAR's former producer. If you are TRULY a WAR fan, you will find out the truth about all this BS and come to realize that the LOWRIDER BAND is the "Heartbeat" of what used to be WAR. Don't give your money to Jerry Golddigger, his (I hate to say it, but I am anyways) puppet, Lonnie Jordan, and the hired hands backing him up. It's so sad when people that didn't even create all of WAR's awesome and iconic collection of music, get ALL of the recognition and royalties that belong to the OG's of WAR, Howard Scott, Harold Brown, Lee Oskar and BB Dickerson, and may they rest in peace, Papa Dee Allen and Charles Miller. Don't be fooled people, like I once was. Making it heard and delivering the word. Peace.

Format: DVD
A very, very difficult video to watch, especially if you are a purist as I am. I dig an original sound by original cats. Before I continue, I'll say the video quality is very nice, however I feel too far away from the action to really feel as if I was there, so in that aspect, it's quite generic.

I understand people move on as time goes by, and original band members fight, but if that's the case, why not play new material and call it Lonnie Jordan & friends. Or at least perform the Lonnie Jordan type tunes like "Don't Let No One Get You Down" or "Deliver The Word". It's hard for me to hear "The World Is A Ghetto" without B.B. Dickerson singing it. He had a great voice.

Somebody bought me this for a birthday gift, and I did not know what to expect, but to see "War" performing Gypsy Queen, Iron Man, Shotgun, etc....WHAT A JOKE!

And where is the music? All I got was this nut talking the whole way through the show, regardless if it is within the context of the DVD as one reviewer states. If that is the case, the reviewer is wrong, the DVD should be called Lonnie Jordan Speaks and not War Greatest Hits?! Since when is Sunshine Of Your Love a War greatest hit?

You know, whatever is going on inside that War camp is between them I guess, but it is 2009, and we're all getting older, get the reunion going in memory of Charles Miller and Papa Dee, and get over it already, and let's go out with a bang! Because right now the War name is going out with a gong!

i had the pleasure of being at fifteen of his concerts from 1983 to 1993 most of which were at a place called tombstone junction. but i also saw him in lexington and louisville and owensboro,ky. this show on this dvd was in late 1992 and was not the last concert he ever gave. it is an awesome show. for those of you lucky enough to have ever been to one of his concerts then you know like me how great he was and if you havent then this is the dvd for you.

War is one of the most wonderful and influential groups this country has ever produced. I have been a fan for many years and lucky enough to see them in concert 4 times, each one a celebration unlike any other. So I bought this concert and expecting a joyous experience l plugged it into my Blu-ray player and sat in shock as Lonnie Jordan spoiled most of the concert with his self-centered inane banter. Is this what happens when a performer (Lonnie Jordan) begins to think he's more important than the music? What a wasted opportunity, this concert could have been a defining moment in (Blu-ray) posterity for a legendary band. That being said War's music stands the test of time better than most and their music is still great but I still feel disappointed.
