A nice copy of a scarce Eric Burdon/War set, and the only copy we’ve ever seen that included the original obi.
Background: Released in 1970, The Black Man’s Burdon was the second of two albums that Eric Burdon, former singer for the Animals, recorded with War.
The album reached #80 on the U.S. album charts.
Eric Burdon’s second and final album with War, Black-Man’s Burdon was a double set that could have benefited from a bit of judicious editing. Composed mostly of sprawling psychedelic funk jams, it finds War mapping out much of the jazz/Latin/soul grooves that would shortly bring them success on their own.
