War all day music

All Day Music is the fourth album by funk group War, released November 1971 on United Artists Records. The title single was backed with "Get Down".


"Slipping Into Darkness" (backed with "Nappy Head"), War's first big hit since their name change from Eric Burdon and War, was on the Billboard Hot 100 for 22 weeks and so tied with Gallery's "Nice to Be With You" for most weeks on that chart all within the calendar year 1972. (The spelling was changed slightly to "Slippin' Into Darkness" for the single, and is also used on a CD edition of the album.) It became a gold record, and Billboard ranked it as the No. 23 song for 1972. The influence of "Slipping Into Darkness" can be heard on the Steve Miller hit Fly Like an Eagle (song).

A subtitle for "Nappy Head" claims it is the theme from Ghetto Man, but there does not appear to be any notable film or television series with this title, and it may refer to a series that never went into production. "Baby Brother" is a live track recorded at the Hollywood Bowl, June 30, 1971, at an event called the United Artists 99 Cent Spectacular; a studio version of this song retitled "Me and Baby Brother" appeared on a later album, Deliver the Word (1973).

The original cover art was printed with a metallic silver background, and features a group photo by Bob Gordon.
