Music Exploder – Lonnie Jordan from Battle and producer Jerry Goldstein inform the story behind the long-lasting music “Low Rider.”


“Low Rider”

The band Battle shaped in 1969, in Lengthy Seaside, California. “Low Rider” is from their 1975 album Why Can’t We Be Pals? The music was a success as quickly because it got here out. It went to #1 on the Billboard R&B charts, and it’s simply had great lasting energy ever since. In addition to being within the film Dazed and Confused, the place I heard it, it’s been sampled by the Beastie Boys, it was lined by Korn, and it was the theme music for all six seasons of The George Lopez Present.

For this episode, I talked to Battle’s bandleader Lonnie Jordan, and their producer Jerry Goldstein. The 2 of them informed me how “Low Rider” was made within the studio, via a mix of improvisation and meticulous modifying.
