||Truly the "Best of"|
Everything an old Kinks fan or "British invasion" fan expects of the group.
By Ric (San Antonio, TX)
||Kinks still have a good kick!|
It's been quite sometime since I've heard many of the tracks on this album, and needless to say, even the "old stuff" still has a good kick to it.
By linneamadden (Sacramento,CA. USA)
A wonderful collection with most of the early raw rockers that changed so many of our young ears back then!

Retrospective CD (2004) Top Seller
You Really Got Me: The Best of the Kinks CD music Today the most recognition the Animals get is "House of the Rising Sun" being played on oldies radio, but in the mid-1960s they were a powerful part of the British Invasion, often reckoned on a par with the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who. Like those bands, the Animals had strong roots in blues and R&B, but, in their original incarnation, they stayed closer to those roots than their peers did. This definitive compilation, masterfully assembled by the ABKCO think tank of Teri Landi and Jody Klein, shows the tough, uncompromising use to which the Animals put their American influences. John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom" is recast as a raw garage rocker glazed with Alan Price's sinister organ riffs, and the aforementioned "House of the Rising Sun" is transformed from a traditional folk lament to an urgent, ominous piece of churning tumult.
Of course, the group skillfully expanded those roots (with the help of some great writers), and turned out some classic working-class-rebel anthems ("We Gotta Get Out of This Place," "It's My Life"). By '67, the original lineup disbanded, and Eric Burdon led a new batch of Animals into a psychedelic West Coast sound ("San Franciscan Nights," "Monterey"). The Animals may not be given pride of place in the rock history books, but RETROSPECTIVE shows that they fully deserve it.

Complete Hit Singles CD (2004) Top Seller
You Really Got Me: The Best of the Kinks buy CD music One of the most commercially successful bands of its era, Three Dog Night had a remarkable run of more than 20 chart singles between 1969 and 1975, racking up nearly a dozen top-10 hits and, consequently, 12 consecutive gold albums. THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES brings these 21 cuts together in a single-disc package. The band's soulful pop-rock, driven by the revolving, triple lead vocals of Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells, and sweetened by atmospheric keys, rock guitar, and tasteful strings, attest to their widespread appeal and sustained popularity.
Though the band focused on interpreting material by other songwriters, their taste was impeccable. Those with even a passing familiarity with the pop music of the time will recognize the Dog's cover of Harry Nilsson's "One," Paul William's "An Old Fashioned Love Song," and Randy Newman's "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)." Two Hoyt Axton songs, "Never Been to Spain" and "Joy to the World," provided the band with two of their biggest hits, with the latter dominating the top slot for six straight weeks. The Arkin/Robinson-penned song "Black and White" (another #1 smash) is also included. In all, the track list amounts to a definitive collection of the band's best moments.

Best of the Animals CD (1966) Top Seller
You Really Got Me: The Best of the Kinks album for sale When ABKCO Records acquired the U.S. rights to the Animals' 1964-1965 recordings produced by Mickie Most, they resurrected the title and artwork (and even the catalog number) of the classic MGM-issued Best of the Animals compilation from 1966. But as 1987 was the era of the CD, with its longer running time, they felt compelled to make some changes -- in addition to adding 15 more minutes of material, upping the the track list from 11 to 15 in the process, they also re-ordered all of it so that "House of the Rising Sun" led off the album, instead of being in the middle (at the end of side one on the original LP), though it was still the unedited 4:29 version, which had graced the original LP. What they did change was to pull a couple of songs -- "Roberta," which wasn't considered a great loss, and also the U.S. version of "We've Gotta Get Out of This Place." The latter, made from a tape of an outtake (an accident by EMI, copying the wrong take and sending it to MGM in America), had reached the Top 20 -- it was replaced with the U.K. version. The latter was generally not considered as good as the American rendition, and the opinion was strong enough so that when ABKCO released another compilation, Retrospective, in 2004, the American-released version of the song was restored. Otherwise, the additions, including "The Story of Bo Diddley," "Dimples," and "Around and Around," were considered enhancements. And this is a good collection to start out with the band, though one might do better with EMI's Complete Animals two-CD set of the same label's 2000-vintage The Best of the Animals, both of which include the epic uncut seven-minute version of "Talkin' 'Bout You" (from which the familiar under-two-minute cut was distilled). ~ Bruce Eder

Greatest Hits CD (2000) Top Seller
You Really Got Me: The Best of the Kinks buy CD music Recorded from 1965-1968. Originally released on Kama Sutra. Includes liner notes by Ben Edmonds.
Digitally remastered by Bob Irwin (Sundazed Studios, Coxsackie, New York).
The Lovin' Spoonful was one of the very first bands to take part in the folk-rock boom of the mid-1960s, creating something of an East Coast equivalent to the Byrds' seminal L.A. jangle. The original group's lineup was regrettably short-lived, all their classic material getting released on Buddha records, so the label's definitive GREATEST HITS collection presented none of the usual cross-licensing difficulties.
All the highlights of the Spoonful's '60s discography are here--the airy, transcendent pop of the jubilant "Do You Believe in Magic" and the almost Association-like "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice," the tougher rock sound of "Summer in the City," the romantic ballad "Darling Be Home Soon," and more. The rootsier side of the ensemble can be heard as well, on the likes of "Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind" and "Jug Band Music." Led by John Sebastian's mellifluous voice and graceful songwriting and Zal Yanovsky's chiming guitar, the Spoonful turned out some of the most memorable singles of the '60s, and they're all right here.

Absolute Animals 1964-1968 CD (2003)
You Really Got Me: The Best of the Kinks songs As hard as it is to believe, there was no single-disc collection that contained all of the Animals' greatest hits until Raven Records released Absolute Animals 1964-1968 in 2003. Prior to this, compilations were devoted to one of three distinct eras. First, there were the first recordings that they made with producer Mickie Most, which included "House of the Rising Sun," "I'm Crying," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," and "It's My Life." Then, they severed ties with Most, recording the acclaimed Animalisms album and having hits with "Inside, Looking Out," "Help Me Girl," and "Don't Bring Me Down" before imploding. Lead singer Eric Burdon then assembled a new version of the group, putting his name above the Animals in their official billing, and cut several psychedelic recordings and singles, including "San Franciscan Nights," "Monterey," and "Sky Pilot." Since each of these three eras were owned by different labels, there were many legal obstacles to assembling a definitive comp with all three eras being represented equally, but Raven managed to do an excellent job with the 20-track Absolute Animals (note: the final track is four minutes of interviews, bringing the total songs to 19). All of the singles mentioned above are featured here, along with other highlights like "Boom Boom," "Bring It on Home to Me," "See See Rider," and "When I Was Young." Perhaps some of the early recordings are glossed over -- "Gonna Send You Back to Walker," "Story of Bo Diddley," and "Bury My Body" all arguably hold up better than some of the later psychedelicized tracks -- but frankly, it's a relief to have one compilation that has all the hits from all the incarnations on one disc. Not only that, but it's hard to imagine a single-disc that would tell a complete Animals history as succinctly as this essential disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Absolute Animals 1964-1968 (2003 Remastered Edition) is quite simply the best, most comprehensive single CD Animals compilation available in the world, covering the legendary band's output from beginning to end, incorporating the first era of R&B-styled classics and the second era of spacey, psychedelic excursions. All their classic hits are present. With 20 tracks at 78 minutes duration and featuring extensive liner notes, this is a must for Animals aficionados and lovers of enduring and quality music alike.
The Animals include: Eric Burdon (vocals); Chas Chandler (keyboards).
