With :

B.B. Dickerson - (b., perc., voc)
Harold Brown - (drums)

Howard Scott - (g., perc., voc)
Charles Miller - (clarinet, fl., perc., sax., voc)

Lee Oskar - (harmonica, perc., voc.)
Papa Dee Allen - (perc, voc.)

This album is for me the best of War. Because it is their best period (72/73), the energy is really intense and their mastery on stage is incredible. All the tracks are over-boosted. The set includes Slippin' Into Darkness, All Day Music and Get Down in their original long form, as well as the previously unrecorded Ballero, a superb latin jam session that reached #33 on the pop and #17 on R&B singles charts.
But the track that makes me crazy is The Cisco Kid with the funkiest wahwah guitar I have ever heard!!
