Hi, Richard. Just noticed this comment. I grew up with that album, too. Lee Oskar is a genius. And the rest of the band is still great. I guess one guy got the rights to the name War, so now they are The Lowriders. Ah, property rights ...

I can remember riding thru downtown LA in about 1973 in the back of a giant old tail-finned cadillac with a bunch of folks from work, black, white, male female, you could get a lot of people into one of those old behemoths, smoking a shit ton of weed (it was lunch break!) all of us chanting Low-Ri-Der ... good times.
