After the demise of The Animals in 1969, Eric Burdon was living in San Francisco and joined up with the Oakland-based funk band War, becoming the group’s vocalist. They released “Spill The Wine” in 1970, around the same time I got my first stereo. I bought the single and played the grooves off of it. The song reached #3 on the Hot 100 and in Canada, #5 in Mexico, and #2 in Australia. This is a “live” version of the song, which stretches out a little beyond the original 4:51 length of the single.
