The Edwin Starr's masterpiece comprising the american counterculture anthem, the anti-war song about the Vietnam conflict. Released on Motown Records in 1970,  "War & Peace" is a magnum opus of Soul Music, an essential  record, a classic among the classics from the Berry Gordy's productions. From the beginning to the end, "War & Peace" contains no dead time, as evidenced the future standards included in the album, such as "Running Back And Forth" & "Time" (both composed by Edwin Starr), the cover songs "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head", "California Soul" (Ashford & Simpson), and of course, the timeless "War", originally recorded by The Temptations and composed by the hitmakers couple : Norman Whitfield & Barrett Strong.
