War To Release ‘The World Is A Ghetto: 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition’ As 4CD & Digital Set

To mark the 50th anniversary of their 1973 best-selling album, The World Is a Ghetto, War will release The World Is a Ghetto: 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition as a 4CD and Digital Set.

In addition, the original 1976 Greatest Hits package containing tracks from The World Is a Ghetto and more will be available on CD and vinyl.

Both will be released via Rhino on July 19 and are available for pre-order now at https://war.lnk.to/TWIAGTCS

The World Is A Ghetto: 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition was curated by War’s producer Jerry Goldstein, sole original member Lonnie Jordan, and Jeremy Levine.

It includes the recently remastered original album, as well as six bonus tracks and “the making of” recordings, which trace the in-studio evolution of each of the six original album tracks. All were first released on the vinyl box set, and this marks the first time they will be on CD and streaming platforms.

The Greatest Hits brings together War’s classic collection of tracks, including “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Low Rider,” “Cisco Kid,” “Gypsy Man” and “Southern Part of Texas.”

War’s first U.K. show in 16 years will take place on June 21 as part of Chaka Khan‘s Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall. Tickets are available now.

Tickets for the rest of their upcoming performances for The World Is a Ghetto 50th Anniversary Tour are on-sale at war.com/tour.
