"War-War Live-1973 US":
War is an American funk band from California, known for the hit songs "Low Rider", "Spill the Wine", "The Cisco Kid", "The World Is a Ghetto", and "Why Can't We Be Friends?". Formed in 1969, War was a musical crossover band which fused elements of rock, funk, jazz, Latin, rhythm and blues, and reggae.
"War Live" is the first live album by funk group War, recorded during a four-night engagement at Chicago's High Chapparral club and released on United Artists Records. Originally issued as a double LP.
The album contains "Ballero" which was previously unreleased. Many of the songs appear in extended versions, two of them filling an LP side apiece.
One single was taken from the album: "Ballero" / "Slippin' Into Darkness" (both heavily edited for single release), which charted at #33 on the USA pop chart, and #17 on the R&B singles charts. The album sold 1.5 million copies.
