In between studio efforts, the band released WAR Live, a double LP documenting the dazzling dynamic synergy the band's concerts were renowned for. Recorded during a four-night engagement at Chicago's High Chapparral club, the set includes classic WAR favorites such as "Slippin' Into Darkness," "All Day Music" and "Get Down" in their original long form, as well as the previously unrecorded "Ballero," a fiery Latin jam that reached #33 on the pop and #17 on R&B singles charts. WAR Live continued the band's commercial success, eventually selling a million and a half copies.

I saw War live several times. The first time Eric Burden was the front man and they were performing in a college gymnasium.
I owned many of their albums on vinyl, including this one which is a DOUBLE album, and have now replaced all of them with CD/MP3.
There can be no fave/best track on this release, because every track is a live jam version of a rock anthem. Listening to it now.... why oh why did I wait so long?
You know War's music, even if you don't know the name of the band, because we constantly hear their music in movies, commercials and TV shows. If you know the band, and know that you already love their music, then I promise you, this live work is everything a superb live jam can be.
shall leave you stunned and amazed (as it has me!!). I get the same thrill from hearing this double disc package as when one of my older brothers put this classic on his Pioneer turntable some 30 years ago! An absolute MUST have for that true WAR impressario. When I saw 'WAR-LIVE' pop up on my screen,I was compelled to claim my very own copy BEFORE they were painfully sold out. If the early studio offerings of this gritty n'earthy septet turns you on...do yourself (and your REAL urban music collection)a favor,BUY THIS PRODUCT!!
