ABSOLUTELY THE BEST conatins newly recorded versions of Eric Burdon & The Animals' greatest hits.
Includes liner notes by Marc Allan.
Liner Note Author: Marc D. Allan.
Photographer: Neil Zlozower.
On more than one occasion, Eric Burdon has gone into the studio and re-recorded the hit singles which made him famous in the '60s. This 1998 collection is one of those sets of re-recordings. So if you're looking for the (invariably superior) original versions of classics like "House of the Rising Sun," "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" or "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," be forewarned that you'll have to look elsewhere.
That said, Burdon sounds fine here, and the ravages of time have only added more character to his already-raspy voice. The arrangements tend to resist updating, and the playing is perfectly acceptable. Caveat emptor, but this isn't anywhere near as embarrassing as some releases of this nature.
