They always do a great job on their compilations and this one is as good as their others. There are 22 songs lasting 78 minutes, all beautifully taken from the original masters. The sound is excellent. There is a very informative booklet as well.
I would have liked to see them include the original American single of House of the Rising Sun in addition to the U. These are the complete original recordings of the singles, not remakes. The sound quality is excellent. It includes the extended versions of "House of the Rising Sun" and both parts of "Sky Pilot" the original single was divided over two sides into parts one and two. The early singles are the better part of the collection, a good series of Brill Building-written tunes that were tailored to Burden's gruff, angry vocal style "It's My Life" is a particular favorite.
The later '60s tunes haven't aged as well, with their dated sounds electric sitar, flanged drums , but they are enjoyable in a camp way, and are catchy. Eric's big hit single with War, "Spill the Wine," rounds out the set. This greatest hits CD really delivers! It's all the best and it's all original recordings.
No re-recordings or new versions and no live performances slipped in somewhere. To me, every other Animals greatest hits release is now obsolete. All other versions are missing some of the best hits and giving us mediocre or regional hits only. This CD has every song I fell in love with as a teenager that was released and played on the radio stations in the L.
Great job by the producer and the release company. Some of the best money I have every spent. One person found this helpful.
I received the new cd in good shape. I was going to return it for replacement, but I listened to it. Turns out it is the correct music just the wrong MFG label on the disk- Ive never had that happen! Im keeping the cd since the music inside is correct. Im OK with it. Eric Burdon and the Animals were, and still are, regardless of what some folks think, one of the "supergroups" of the 60's and 70's and part of what is referred to as "The British Invasion", even though at times, they seemed more American than their counterparts.
Hit after hit was nothing to the Eric and the Animals and they pulled it off as well as the Stones, the Beatles, or even Zepplin. Between their early work like the classic "House of the Rising Sun" to their epic masterpiece "Sky Pilot" they were in line with the big boys and played the field well. Hitting some trends first, following in the footsteps of others at times as well, they take their place in history with hits like "Don't Bring Me Down", "We Gotta Get Outta This Place", and their tribute to the city of love "San Franciscan Nights" as well as a few others.
They have still got the chops and the staying power. Have one to sell? Sell on Amazon. Image Unavailable Image not available for Color:. Live at the Club a Gogo.
