About the Album
Recorded while WAR was pursuing a parallel career without Eric Burdon, WAR combined songs dating back to some band members’ pre-WAR years with newly recorded music. While the album didn’t produce the chart-topping hits their efforts with Burdon yielded, it did solidify the signature WAR sound that would soon propel them to stardom with such soul-groovers as “Sun Oh Sun” and “Lonely Feelin'” (#38 R&B). Ironically, the band would begin its solo career shortly after the release of WAR as Burdon bowed out of the lineup permanently.
