“Eric Burdon Declares War” by Eric Burdon and War - album review

TJR says

The first post-post Animals album, and the first of two to be created with War. The concept was simple and engaging and, despite the occasional musical meandering, very effective. The back cover includes this declaration: “We the People, have declared War against the People, for the right to love each other”. And check THAT cover. Credited to The Visual Thing (with Burdon credited for the concept), it depicts two disembodied but joined arms, one white and one black, both giving a three finger salute, similar to the peace sign which uses two fingers. Was it three fingers for War? 2-Tone shall prevail. Was Jerry Dammers watching on?
