Low rider knows every street, yeah
Take a little trip, take a little trip
This song about the West Coast Latino subculture that lived to cruise the boulevards, was released by War in 1975 on the album Why Can't We Be Friends. The song was the only 45 by this funk/R&B crossover band to reach #1 on the R&B charts. It reached #7 on the Top 40 charts. The bass line is well recognized and the song has been covered by bands such as korn and Phish.
Rick performed a piece of this song in Las Vegas, NV at Sunset Station on September 2, 2000 and again in Redondo Beach, CA on October 13, 2000.
