444 Why Can't We Be P-Funk?

The band that originally brought us “Low Rider” is still active. No. Seriously. They released an album in 2014 and now go by the name The Lowrider Band. Originally, they were called Eric Burdon and War and then just War. Besides “Low Rider,” they also did “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” and “Spill the Wine.” The World Is A Ghetto (United Artists, 1972) contains none of these songs. Both Rolling Stone and Apple Music callWar a funk band. I don’t really know what that means. Although I like the songs I mentioned earlier, there wasn’t anything I cared for on this album.
