It came as no surprise when Avenue reissued most of War’s ’70s albums in the ’90s — many of those albums had been gold and platinum sellers as LPs, and the market for reissues of classic soul and funk was a healthy one. But because Lee Oskar’s solo albums of 1976-1980 were far from the huge sellers that War’s albums were, it came as a pleasant surprise when Avenue started reissuing them in the ’90s. First released on vinyl in 1980 and reissued in 1995, My Road, Our Road was Oskar’s third solo album. The highlights of this mostly instrumental pop-jazz/R&B date include the mellow “Up All Night” and the good-natured “Song for My Son” as well as the evocative “My Road” and the moody “Our Road,” which features jazz saxophonist Pat Rizzo as well as Brazilian jazz singer Flora Purim. It’s safe to say that the vast majority of War fans didn’t buy this album; however, it’s an enjoyable outing that did receive some attention in the quiet storm market.
