Over the years I have seen Alan Price on a number of occasions. I saw him as a member of the Animals back in 1964 at the Scene Club in London's Soho and later that year at Eel Pie Island, Twickenham. I last saw him just a month ago at The Cliffs, Southend where he appeard along with Cliff Bennett and the Manfreds. However, if you want to see Alan Price at his very best then catch him in concert in a small theatre where he creates a wonderful musical ambience; tells jokes and anecdotes in his downbeat style. This is an excellent retrospective C.D. Alan is one of the U.K.'s great rhythm and blues/jazz composer arrangers and this C.D. shows his great talent. Three tracks are from the 1971 colaboritive album with Georgie Fame "Fame & Price/Price & Fame/Together "That's How Strong My Love Is", Yellow Man" and "Rosetta". These tracts shows the Randy Newman influence on Alan(on the album "The Price Is Right" Alan sings 5 Randy Newman compositions and 4 of his own) and to some extent the Mose Allison influence on Georgie Fame. All the Alan Price Set's hits and moderate hits are here: "I Put a Spell On You", "Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear", "The House That Jack Built", "Don't Stop the Carnival", "Hi-Lily Hi-Lo" as well as the working class anthem "Jarrow Song" from the 1974 "Between Yesterday and Today" album. Also, there is Alan's brilliant compositions for the 1973 film "O Lucky Man!" He wrote, arranged and sang all songs used in the film including "Poor Peope" "My Home Town" and "Changes". Great C.D. and really good value.

Format: Audio CD
Alan is best remembered for the classics he recorded with the Animals, most notably House of the rousing sun, but he made plenty of great music after quitting the Animals and going solo. One of the reasons he quit the Animals was that he didn't like the extensive touring, so he did less of that as a solo singer - this may be why his solo records met with only limited success in America, where he had one minor hit (I put a spell on you) but was otherwise ignored.
After leaving the Animals, Alan had four UK top ten hits and three other hits that nearly made the UK top ten including Rosetta, a duet with Georgie Fame. The remarkable aspect of Alan's solo hits is their variety. I put a spell on you (a cover of a Screaming Jay Hawkins song) is a bluesy song that could so easily have been recorded by the Animals. By contrast, Don't stop the carnival (a cover of a Sonny Rollins song) is a calypso-flavored song, while Hi Lilli hi lo is a cover of a song from a fifties musical (Lilli). Simon Smith and his amazing dancing bear (written by Randy Newman) is another great song.
Alan sometimes wrote his own material and two of his UK top ten hits were with his own songs. One was The house that Jack built, but the other is perhaps the most famous of Alan's solo hits even though it wasn't the biggest of his hits. It is, of course, Jarrow song, an anthem for the people of Newcastle. Alan also had a minor hit with a superb ballad, Just for you. It deserved to be a much bigger hit but by the time of its release (1978), Alan was no longer fashionable.
This compilation contains the best of Alan's post-Animals music including some of his duets with Georgie Fame.

This is a superb collection of a quite under-appreciated artist, that helped define British music, when it was still world-leading.

The songs are a bit like the Beatle's - snippets of Life, wrapped up into lyrical nuggets of a few minutes. Despite myself only just being born at the time of his peak, with The Animals, I feel in-tune with him - I guess good music always transposes to all that appreciate it.

I've been more exposed to Mr Price through my love of film and recently, especially the excellent O! Lucky Man, starring Malcolm McDowell, Ralph Richardson and an unforgettable Helen Miriam. The point being that Alan composed and sang all the incidental songs and music for it and at that point, I decided that I must have this man's music, proper!

It's a great selection of songs that can be played as and when. It's instantly likeable, just like the very man, I'm sure!

I saw Alan Price at the end of April and felt I needed something in my collection of his. This is a really good CD. The guy has a huge range of material and he's still excellent today. This covers so much of what he did; highly recommended!

Lots of tracks, lots of class, lots of variety. Not sure that all of these are what I would consider his definitive recording of the songs in question. However, this may just be because Alan Price is also brilliant outside the studio.

So many talented individuals get overlooked by the masses for the saccharine and bland types that flood the airwaves. Here is a true talent both as an artist, songwriter and performer who deserves a bigger audience.
From his days with the Animals to the present day he has turned out quality material. And if " Jarrow Song' doesn't have you singing along you should get byour pulse checked immediately.

Superb anthology from the underrated Geordie Boy, excellent value. Full of interesting and varied songs including the brilliant Jarrow Song and one of my all time favourites Just For You. A great listen.
