11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Nov. 2008
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
By current standards, this reissue of The Animals' first two albums is basic. There are no bonus tracks and the insert consists of no more than the original artwork for both albums. At 70 minutes of music by one of the best British r&b bands, however, it would be churlish to complain.

A look at the tracklist reveals a repertoire common to most bands of the genre in that era. Only two of the songs are original and one of those, the opener, is a Bo Diddley shuffle which contains snippets of songs by other artists. Elsewhere, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Ray Charles and Fats Domino are all well-represented. However familiar the material might be, however, The Animals excel in their performance of it. They tackle slow blues, fast rhythm numbers, boogie and rock and roll with equal aplomb. The 'Animal Tracks' album shows maturity, notably on slower songs such as 'How You've Changed' and 'I Believe To My Soul', but their first album has a rugged charm, not least for a rhythm section that rumbles like thunder. There are some comprehensive compilations out there that feature their very best material, but I prefer this in tandem with The Singles Plus as they concentrate on the more exciting early material.

This would have five stars but for the fact this has The Animals on it. You can take or leave this plain vanilla reworking of soul, but Animal Tracks is a different...animal...altogether.
Animal Tracks is a far more mature sound and the blues really is bluesy and was my first real discovery of white boys playing blues and really meaning it.

Two very good Albums on one CD by one of the best groups of all time. Very good covers of blues and soul standards by Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, John Lee Hooker etc. I think Eric Burdon is one of the best white soul singers. I recommend this album to all lovers of music from the 60's, and especially lovers of soul and blues.

British R&B, Newcastle Style 11 Oct. 2005
By Kelly Izaj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of the many bands that came out of the British R&B Boom of the 1960's, the Animals from Newcastle were arguably the best of the bunch. And this 2 on 1 CD from EMI - which compiles their two Columbia LPs, THE ANIMALS and ANIMAL TRACKS - gives one a good reason why. Listening to this CD, one notices that as a straightforward British R&B band, the Animals were among the more authentic because of their preference for the more leering tempos prefered by many of great American blues performers (listen to such tracks as "For Miss Caulker", "I Believe To My Soul", and "I'm Mad Again"). But like such contemporaries as the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds, they could rock out with the best of them (listen to "Around and Around" and "Roadrunner"). A must have for anyone who loves British R&B and/or happens to be a fan of the Animals. And I happen to be both.

TWO GREAT ALBUMS ON ONE CD 16 May 2011
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
With this CD, you get the full versions of these songs, that run a few seconds longer than on there greatest hits album. You don't get there big hits on this CD, but i found that this album and there singles A&B collection covers there early period very well. These two CDs are very cost effective. The sound is about as good as it gets, which is very good.

For anyone who wants to experience the early sounds of the Animals, I reccomend you listen to this cd. It's a blend of of early blues, rock'n'roll, and even pays homage to Bo Diddley.A good buy for any rock music collector.
