War ‎– Low Rider / Heartbeat (Single sided Promo 12″)

Dipping my toe in the 70’s with this often played track by War , a funk band from South California. Guided by producer Jerry Goldstein and had an early connection with Eric Burdon from The Animals. This was their BIG hit from 1975. Things started to go downhill for the group in the late 70’s when bassist B.B. Dickerson left and another member, Charles Miller, was murdered.

The B-side “Heartbeat” is well worth a listen, funky as the singer constantly mentions.
