Product Description:

Photographer: Michael Ochs.
THE BEST OF ERIC BURDON AND THE ANIMALS: 1966-1968 is an excellent compilation of hit singles and album tracks from the period after 1966, when the Animals' original lineup began to disintegrate. The songs collected here mark a departure from the basic R&B format and witness the band's earliest excursions in the West Coast psychedelic style. The Animals' latter-day rhythm section also approaches the funky sound that would subsequently define Eric Burdon and War.
"Don't Bring Me Down," soulfully sung by Burdon and textured with a fuzzed-out guitar sound, can be found here, alongside the epic "Sky Pilot." The latter continues the Animals' tradition of Vietnam protest songs and is presented here in its full, two-part glory. A very '60s sense of social consciousness certainly informs such offerings, but the Animals' classic tunes don't sound a bit dated. This collection is an essential addition to any well-stocked classic-rock library.

Best of the Animals Music Lover: from Parma, OH US -- August, 8, 2007

From their first recordings to their last, the Animals with the powerful voice of Eric Burdon as their frontman were along with the Rolling Stones, John Mayall, Spencer Davis and the Yardbirds were the most hard edged blues based bands of the early British invasion. Every cut on this collection is first rate. Eric Burdon is still recording and touring with the New Animals and his longtime fans are glad he is.
