Great Blast from the Past..!.!.!! Sure conjures up those days of my
youth when this Musical Group came on the scene along with other equally
Accomplished 1970's musical groups. 'Twas a time of the greatest music ever since
the Great Classicals made their debut wwaayy earlier.

This is a fantastic collection that has pretty much everything you would want from this group. I have never got tired of listening to these classic songs and when I saw they were all on one disc, actually two , I couldn't resist. Beginning with the some of the really old stuff, like "Spill The Wine" it was just amazing to hear these songs again. Eric Burdon was the voice, him of the British Invasion known for his songs with the Animals, with songs like "House of the Rising Sun" comes across still fresh as ever. His version of the classic song "Tobacco Road" doesn't quite hit the mark but he more than makes up for it with "Spill the Wine." Let's get down to the nitty gritty.When you hear songs like "Slippin into Darkness" and "All Day Music" it is soul personified from a different era, when low riders roamed the streets and people strutting the urban jungle would just give you a thumbs up as you passed with War blaring "The Cisco Kid" or "Low Rider." Who can forget when a peace anthem like "Why Can't We Be Friends " helped create harmony between races. Or the beautiful So Cal anthems, "Summer" or "L.A. Sunshine" blasted from the windows while people grooved to the funky sounds. This was a group for the ages that is like fine wine that ages well. They are still going strong as they are playing this Memorial Day Weekend at the Greek theatre in L.A. in 2015! Listen to " East L.A." with a contribution from Jose Feliciano and you'll be finger poppin and swaying to the music. If you missed them the first time around, they are still around so check them out. This is a great collection so don't miss it. On a slightly personal note I bought this disc back in November of 2014.Read more ›

Don't know how to discribe the feelings in words that I feel each and everytime I listen to this cd. I anticipated it's arrival and it has lived up to all I could have wanted. Always takes me to a great place.

Sometimes a song will come on my I-pod and I'll ask to myself who is this? It's good music. Invariably it is a song from this album, one I haven't heard in years. This is a great album and represents War well. Well worth the price.
