All the classic grooves of War can be found on this entertaining CD compilation. The 4 rating is just for the 1st CD only. I was expecting a great remix from the 2nd CD (8 songs each sampled by various DJ's) but was very disappointed. I'm also disappointed that they used the single release (from the 1st CD) of 'Spill the Wine', in which they shave about a minute off the original. However, the rest of the 1st CD is worth the price of admission. You get the classics 'Low Rider', 'Why Can't We Be Friends', 'Tobacco Road', 'Summer', 'The Cisco Kid' & 'The World is a Ghetto', all in their original length. Definitely entertaining and recommended. And it's all been remastered.
