This is a historic performance, which captures Eric Burdon during an exciting period of his career. And whilst the period 1970-1971 is a well-documented part of his career, this film footage of Eric Burdon and War performing together is rare.
Following the split of the original Animals in 1966, Eric Burdon formed a new band called Eric Burdon and The Animals sometimes referred to as "The New Animals" This band moved more in the direction of psychedelic rock music and were heavily influenced by the music coming out of San Francisco at the time. During his time in San Francisco in 1969, Eric Burdon hooked up with funk band War. They joined forces under as (strangely) Eric Burdon and War. Together they recorded two albums; they also enjoyed singles success with Spill The Wine and to a lesser extent Paint It Black from Black Man's Burdon. The session that produced this DVD package was filmed in September 1970, and features four tracks, two tracks apiece from the two albums then currently available. The performance features the hit single Spill The Wine alongside Tobacco Road, Bare Back Rider and Paint It Black, which is extended well beyond its original two minutes to almost thirteen minutes in length. Shortly after during the tour to promote Black Man's Burdon, Eric Burdon collapsed with a suspected asthma attack and left the tour and the band. War continued without him and finished the tour and Eric Burdon went on to a solo career with occasional reformations of the Animals.
