Coming out of Los Angeles in the early '70s, War (originally Eric Burdon and War) had an unusual, genre-blending sound that was unlike any other. Bringing together raw funk, jazz, rock, and reggae -- not to mention a fantastic live show -- they racked up a slew of hit singles and chart-topping albums, and were hugely influential to an entire generation of listeners and future musicians. Though they continued to record with varying line-ups throughout the ‘80s, their best and most commercially successful work is represented here, drawing on the hits from roughly 1970 through 1977. Even if you're not familiar with the group, odds are you know at least a few of these songs, as they've been recycled repeatedly in advertisements, soundtracks, and hip-hop samples over the years. Everything on here is essential, especially crossover favorites like "Low Rider," "The Cisco Kid," "Why Can't We Be Friends," and "All Day Music."
