Eric Burdon and War – Highlights

Eric Burdon and War

Eric Burdon and War playing live at the Beat Club in Germany circa 1970. Furthermore, it features some of their classic hits at the time. Taking place in September of 1970. This performance features four tracks each from the albums available at that time. Featuring “Spill the Wine, Tobacco Road, Bare Back Rider and Paint it Black.

One of the most distinctive soulful voices in rock and roll even though he originally starts out playing American blues and jazz. Eventually he’s the driving force of the Animals and War. One of the most amazing things about this performance is the musicianship and how in sync they are with one another.  Even though the graphics are fuzzy, the sound from the recording is on point. Enjoy!
