Eric Burdon & Jimmy Witherspoon- Guilty!- 1971 US

"Guilty!" (called Black & White Blues in re-releases) is a 1971 album by Eric Burdon and Jimmy Witherspoon. It was the first release by Burdon after he left his band War.
In September 1970, Jimi Hendrix died after a jam session with Eric Burdon & War at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London. After that, Burdon often broke down on stage. On 5 February 1971 he finally left the band in the middle of their European tour, allegedly due to exhaustion. After returning home and taking time off, the bulk of the album was recorded in summer with Witherspoon. The backing band, called Tovarish, consisted mainly of members from War.
"Home Dream" was taken from Eric Burdon & War's back catalog, the song's title refers to the John Phillips Studios in Los Angeles. "Soledad" was released as a single.(wiki)
