War – Deliver The Word

If I could just return to the subject of, y’know, vinyl for a moment…

One of the great things about this random method of music procurment is the way that you can stumble across records that you never knew you needed, or perhaps never even knew existed, and fall instantly in love with them. As happened to me this weekend with War’s 1973 album “Deliver The Word”.

I try not to pay more than a quid for my records, but stumped-up the extra 50p for this as it’s in virtually mint condition and, on the strength of their later hits “Low Rider” and “Galaxy” alone, I had a really good feeling about it.

Sure enough, it’s a beauty: a sweet selection of funk and soul cuts with “Me And Baby Brother”, the phat Moog riffs on “In Your Eyes” and the extended hypno-groove of “Gypsy Man” being sky-highlights to these ears.

  1. I have some War albums but not this one, and I probably should.
    War at the Colston Hall sometime in the 70s still ranks as one of the best gigs I’ve ever been to. A great party atmosphere (difficult to achieve in the Hall) and backdropped movie I seem to remember which was unusual at the time.
