Eric Burdon and War 'Magic Mountain'

Eric Burdon and WAR 'Magic Mountain'

Despite being released in 1976, this album contains live recordings of the band captured between 1969 and 1971. Probably made available for contractual reasons, the material is nevertheless highly enjoyable, with long interpretations of 'Paint It Black' and 'A Day In The Life' taking up one side of the record. Magic Mountain sounds like the place to be. According to the old saying, what goes up must come down, but this basic law of gravity clearly didn't get in the way of Eric's vision in the making of this song.
