Cut from the same cloth as the band's 1973 Deliver the Word LP, War's 1975 Why Can't We Be Friends? is a masterpiece in its scope and breadth. And, emerging as the last work the band would do for its longtime label, United Artists, it became a fitting swansong, powering up the charts and giving War its fourth and final number one hit. In recent years, the album has been overshadowed by the monstrously popular bass-beating and bright brass of its singular hit, "Low Rider." Indeed, the song would become the band's signature theme, as the Latino street-cruiser jam quickly became a live set staple and, much later, was reinvigorated through sampling on songs by the Beastie Boys, Stereo MC's, and Offspring. However, that one track, iconographic as it is, is by no means the only treat onboard Why Can't We Be Friends? There are far more interesting and superb treats roiling in the wake of "Low Rider." The snappy title track, which poses the question of the decade and, oddly, closes the album, is a feel-good thumper. Its bright brass punctuation and rakish vocals are wonderfully combined with an absolutely contagious reggae beat. Then, add the doesn't-get-much-better-than-that medley "Leroy's Latin Lament." Divided into four "songs," the music swings from the smart vocal opening "Lonnie Dreams" to the effervescent Latin jam of "La Fiesta." And, of course, where there's War, there's funk -- this time on the seven-plus minute"Heartbeat." Wrap it all up with the poignant ballad "Lotus Blossom," and the result is pretty much perfection. Why Can't We Be Friends? remains one of War's truly outstanding efforts, and has become an integral part of the funk genre's landscape. It also remains the nightcap of their finest hour. War's ill-timed move to MCA changed the energy and focus of the band forever.

Prince der 80er Jahre

In der Familie des Funk wurde Prince Rogers Nelson als Genre für sich geboren. In 40 Jahren Karriere hat er es erreicht, das Erbe der Gründerväter (James Brown, Sly Stone und George Clinton) den Einflüssen des Rock sowie Elektro und des Jazz beizumischen. Ein unübertrefflicher und umwerfender Groove, der ganz besonders zwischen 1978 und 1988 brillierte…

Daft Punk, nichts mehr hinzuzufügen?

Acht Jahre nach Random Access Memories, das das künstlerische Konzept des 18 Jahre zuvor erschienenen Homework weiterführt, machen Daft Punk Schluss. Als ob nach diesem letzten Album, dem Höhepunkt einer Karriere in Form einer Hommage an die Popkultur der 1970er und 1980er Jahre, keine Neuerfindung mehr möglich wäre…

Al Green und Hi Records - sanfte Revolution des Soul

In der großen Saga der Soul-Musik spielen nicht nur Stax und Motown eine Rolle. Das Label Hi Records hat Anfang der 1970er Jahre in Memphis das Genre revolutioniert und einen einzigartigen Sound erfunden, das Markenzeichen von zwei Genies: dem Produzenten Willie Mitchell und dem Sänger, der zum Pastor wurde, Al Green.
