"War, Peace Sign (2 LPs)"

WAR PEACE SIGN DOUBLE LP SET ORIGINAL 1994 AVENUE RECORDS RELEASE - UNITED ARTISTS DOUBLE OVER A DECADE OUT OF PRINT. Funk band War were formed in 1969 when the disillusioned singer of rock band The Animals, Eric Burdon, met a band called Nightshift in Los Angeles and suggested a united project. The debut album Eric Burdon Declares "War" contained "Spill The Wine", an international hit that made their name. But Burdon left the band shortly after second album The Black Man's Burdon (1970), due to exhaustion from touring. The rest of the band carried on without him. A self-titled album didn't succeed, but All Day Music (1971) did - it included two minor hits and sold over a million copies. The World Is A Ghetto (1972) did even better, topping the album chart and selling three million copies. Deliver The World (1973) sold another two million, but wasn't so well received by critics. War got back into the critics' good books with Why Can't We Be Friends? (1975), which included another hit in the title track, and "Le Freak". The group's popularity began to decline afterwards as their output slowed and the disco craze sidelined gritty funk. In the 80s and 90s, hip-hop artists such as Beastie Boys, De La Soul and Gangstarr sampled many of their songs, introducing War to a new generation of fans. A version of War continues to tour today.

Out of Print forever!! There have been so few vinyl LPs produced over the last 5 years that you should never pass up the opportunity to upgrade your collection. They're each very limited in their pressings and disappear with extraordinary quickness from the vinyl market. This causes prices to skyrocket because once they are gone, they are gone forever! Don't second-guess yourself with this chance to upgrade your collection because before you know it, the opportunity will have passed forever. PEACE SIGN - Peace Sign" is a respectable return for the band after a decade of sporadic touring and recording. War's passion for social justice, lean funk and racial integration remains blessedly intact, and such cuts as 'Homeless Hero', 'East LA' and the classic title track suggest that their message is timeless and still vital. A fine AUDIOPHILE DOUBLE PIECE OF VINYL from funk's best visionairies. 1. Peace Sign 2. East L.A. 3. Wild Rodriguez 4. I'm the One (Who Understands) 5. Roof 6. Smuggler (The Light in the Window) 7.
