The Best of Eric Burdon and The Animals vol.2
Eric Burdon and The Animals
(1967)

SONY DSC

This was a good garage sale find.
The album cover was in good shape – as was the disk itself.
The music is vintage 60s. The musicians were pushing themselves – mixing blues, rock’n roll, psychedelia and pop. It works on this album.
I was hoping that this album had The House of the Rising Sun on it but it does not – I guess that’s on volume 1. That being said, I loved the song When I was Young. It really holds up 50 years on.
I never really paid much attention to Eric Burdon and The Animals. That’s my failing. I love the interplay of the guitars and the organ. The bass lines are very cool. This is an excellent best of album from a very cool band.
