Baxter’s Attic: Eric Burdon and War – “Spill the Wine”
In the Attic this morning we played you some Eric Burdon and War. The tune "Spill the Wine" was partially an accident in a sense. As the story goes, Burdon had partially written a song pretty much based on drugs and sex. During a recording session a member of the group spilled a glass of wine onto the console by accident. By the time they resumed recording, in another studio, Burdon had incorporate the wine spilling incident into the song. Due to his contract, Burdon received zero writing credits on everything he did with War.
