This collection pulls together all the Animals recordings made with producer Mickie Most, and with keyboardist Alan Price on-board. It shows the breadth of the Animals repetoire and, because it includes just about everything they recorded, it's limits too. Highlights are the ever-wonderful songs like House of the Rising Son, Bring it on Home to Me, Worried Life Blues et al. This collection also includes some fine rarities like the extended version of Talking About You, where Price really wigs out in his long organ solo. The poorer tracks like F.E.E.L. and I'm in Love Again are only poor because they sound so much like other songs on the collection (Talking About You and Take it Easy, respectively). But how far can you take a basic 12 bar blues or r'n'b song? In this *classic* 41 track collection, the Animals certainly show us!

Although now eclipsed by the likes of The Rolling Stones, Cream and The Yardbirds, there is a case to be made for the Animals as the best of the Sixties British Power Blues bands. Like those other groups, the Animals took originals by the likes of John Lee Hooker and Chuck Berry and amped them up to deliver songs of a strong, raw emotional content backed by deep bass chords and a fervent lead guitar/vocal combination.
Where The Animals score over many British groups of the Sixties, however, is in the dual strength of Eric Burden’s powerful yet soulful voice and Alan Price’s flourishing keyboard playing. The former is heard to great effect on songs like Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, in which Burden expounds an anguish that hits you at gut level, and the truly magnificent I Believe To My Soul which shows that he was really one of our greatest Blues voices; he screams and pleads as if, as the title suggests, it’s from his very soul. Price’s contribution, especially on the organ, makes songs like House of the Rising Sun and Worried Life Blues near masterpieces of British sixties soul/blues.
Where The Animals failed was in their inability to go the next step from a group referencing Blues classics to one able to put their own spin on the genre and create original work. The Rolling Stones did it, Cream did it and The Yardbirds did it in the form of Led Zeppelin. It’s a pity that The Animals couldn’t produce many self-penned songs because they had the credentials to be as good as anything else out there.
If you want an introduction to The Animals, this is probably the best you can get. It contains all their best tracks as well as some previously unreleased ones. The fact that they were a group who never quite managed to head in their own direction is evident in the sameness of much of the two CDs, but it’s still excellent value for money. If you love Blues, try this; it’s a part of blues history.

Format: Audio CD
The Animals, a group that included Eric Burdon and Alan Price, were the first major pop stars to emerge from Newcastle, a city located about 300 miles north of London, therefore far removed from where most talent scouts were searching. It is fortunate for us all that the Animals were discovered because they recorded some of the best R+B music to come of the UK in the sixties.
Their biggest hit was House of the rising sun, a re-working of a folk song (apparently inspired by Josh White's version of the song) that gave them a transatlantic number one hit. They had five other top ten UK hits with Mickie Most, these being I'm crying, Don't let me be misunderstood (a cover of a Nina Simone song), Bring it on home to me (a Sam Cooke cover), We gotta get out of this place (the version included here is the UK version – a markedly different recording was released in America but was unavailable for inclusion in this set) and It's my life.
Apart from their singles, the Animals recorded many other covers including Boom boom, Dimples, I'm mad again (all John Lee Hooker), Around and around, Memphis Tennessee, How you've changed (all Chuck Berry), I'm in love again, I've been around (both Fats Domino), Talking about you, Hallelujah I love her so and I believe to my soul (all Ray Charles), These covers clearly demonstrate what their main influences were, but they also wrote some of their own songs.
All the music I've mentioned so far and much more can be found on this excellent compilation. Nevertheless, despite the title of the compilation, it isn't actually their complete recordings – there is a sub-text explaining that these are the complete recordings that they made with Mickie Most as producer, although the liner notes describe their whole career.

As a fifty something listener it was time to return to the music of my youth. This was the start. An excellent compilation of early Animals music, it will serve as a good introduction to the R+B scene of the Sixties.
Sound quality is good, I think that some tracks have been remixed but couldn't really confirm that. This really invokes the 60s Newcastle music scene, Club-a-Gogo, shame that that has gone the way of all things. Highly recommended.

After nearly 25 years of CD reissues The Animals back catalogue still frustrates - especially when it comes to price and sound. There are other reissues that offer more for sure (and man do some of them cost), but none that do the job so thoroughly as this early 2CD retrospective from EMI. It covers the Newcastle R'n'B band's rocking beginnings with EMI's Columbia Records (MGM in the USA) between 1964 and 1965 - Production by Mickie Most. It used the NoNoise Sonic Solutions process for remasters and achieved great results too. Here is a detailed show of what's on offer (with a Discography)...
