Turn It Up Tuesday!


September 7, 2010 by esarsea

2 live videos, and 2 studio tracks from the incomparable War. Their 1972 album, The World Is a Ghetto is an absolute classic in my opinion, and remains in regular rotation on my stereo to this day.

If you liked War as much as I did (and do), be sure to check out Lowrider Band featuring several former members of War. Good stuff!

    I usually do’nt have the time to listen to a whole song much less a few of them. Odd to think, I listen to music all day and like most depending on my mood the music changes. There are those outstanding times where you’re in search of a change to a place you’ve been before. With time past knowledge and experience was gained. Returning to that place your mind once was in its adolescence of life you seek understanding on a whole but to be able to see things again but from a diferent place well…that’s the beauty of music.

    I listened to the first two songs and they didn’t do anything for me but I Really enjoyed the latter two World is a Ghetto and Four Cornered Room. I was listening to “Four Cornered Room” enjoying the mellow yet their continuing rhythm and it reminded me of a band called Outcast. The album was Aqumiani I believe, came out in the earily 90s. After the music tapered down and the song ended I realized this had to be their main source and inspiration of that funky mellow beat that catapulted their listener base. Not to many songs out there that can roll a sound that slow and still have it sound good.

    I must admit for never hearing these songs to my knowledge. It sure brought back some good ole memories.. Im a make a few more to the Funky mellow rhythm and percussion of War.

      I’m pretty sure you’ve heard me playing them at some point over the years? After you’ve listened to the 2 songs you liked a few times, go back and revisit the 1st two – they may grow on you. You’re right, War is like anything else…you’ve got to be in that kind of mood. Glad you liked them!

    Good choices this week, Stu.

    And that reminds me…I gotta go listen to “Hollywood Swingin'” by Kool & the Gang. I’m in that frame of mind now.
