Burdon Led The Wildest War Party In Paris

Richard Green, New Musical Express, 23 January 1971

FOR ONCE, the fashion writers have got it right — women's shorts are catching on, in Paris at least. And while the birds are gettin' them off (minis and midis) in favour of gettin' them on (shorts), Eric Burdon and War are gettin' it right on. On Saturday night/Sunday morning they got it on for two and a half hours at the Olympia taking in a mini riot along the way.
