Eric Burdon first came to fame as vocalist with the Newcastle band The Animals. The band enjoyed massive worldwide success with the hit single The House Of The Rising Sun. Following the split of the original Animals in 1966 Eric Burdon hooked up with funk band War and soon joined the band working under the title Eric Burdon and War. This collaborative team recorded two albums with Burdon onboard including Eric Burdon Declares War and Black Man's Burdon. The session that produced this CD/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 way beyond its original two plus minutes with the version included here extended 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. This performance then is a historic performance which captures Eric Burdon from an exciting period of his career and whilst the period 1970-1971 is a well documented part of Eric's career in print this film footage of Eric Burdon and War performing together is rare.
