In 1969 songwriter, and producer Jerry Goldstein (‘My Boyfriends Back,”Hang on Sloopy,”I Want Candy,’) saw the band performing, and recommended them to singer Eric Burdon (see also best songs 851.) Goldstein changed their name to ‘Eric Burdon and War,’ Burdon would be a member from 1969-1971, together they released two studio Albums, and the Billboard Number 3 single,’Spill the Wine.’
‘Galaxy’ is taken from the bands 10th studio Album of the same name, and was released in 1977, the song is possibly influenced by the film ‘Star Wars’ also released that year.Drummer Harold Brown explained,’We were just in the ‘ABC’ studios, we just laid that track down. We were standing listening to the playback, and I said,’Take me to your place in space.’ That was the start of the song, then we started writing it.”’
Take me to your place in space, I’m sick and tired of the rat race.’
