Animals songs Product Information
Animals album for sale by Animals was released Dec 17, 2013 on the Warner Bros. label. Released a month ahead of its U.K. counterpart, with which it shared only seven of its 12 tracks, the Animals' first American album is an entertaining assortment of the recent LP sessions, plus both sides of their first two singles ("Baby Let Me Take You Home" and, of course, "House of the Rising Sun") and one further B-side, "Blue Feeling" (from the newly released "Boom Boom" single). The presence of that latter track, incidentally, would see British collectors spend much of the next 27 years searching for American pressings, before it finally found its way onto a full U.K. release; that matter notwithstanding, however, both permutations of the album offer up a handsome representation of precisely what the Animals meant at this time, a drawling, dirty R&B (with the emphasis on the B) sound personified in the three assaults on the Chuck Berry songbook. The bread and butter of virtually every band on the circuit of the time, the Animals' versions of "Around and Around," "Memphis," and "Talkin' 'Bout You" are far removed from the clear-cut visions served up elsewhere in the British Invasion. Eric Burdon's gleeful retelling of what, by Berry's normal standards, is the somewhat cutesy tale of "Memphis," is still second only to the decade-later Faces' version in terms of fashioning drama from the document, while it would take a souped-up Bowie and the Spiders to bring more sense of movement to "Around and Around." ...See Full Description

||Not the Real Deal|
This album is NOT the original Animals and most importantly it is not Eric Burdon doing the vocals. Extremely disappointing and a must miss for any Animals fan !!
