Biography

Formed in Newcastle upon Tyne during 1962 and 1963 when Eric Burdon joined the Alan Price Rhythm and Blues Combo, the original line-up comprised Eric Burdon (vocals), Alan Price (organ and keyboards), Hilton Valentine (guitar), John Steel (drums), and Bryan "Chas" Chandler (bass). They were dubbed "animals" because of their wild stage act and the name stuck. The ... Read more in Amazon's The Animals Store

Product Description

THE ANIMALS The Singles Plus (1987 Dutch pressed CD album featuring a 20-track collection of their hit singles and more picture sleeve inlay containing biography text! CDP7466052)

Amazon.co.uk Review

Eric Burdon had one of the great white boy soul voice of the 60's: gritty, expressive, charged with a nicotine-fuelled bluesy rasp that lifted it far above most of his contemporaries. Songs like "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and the impassioned "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" bespoke a turbulence and emotion that was matched only by Dylan and the Stax/Volt crew. "Let The Good Times Roll" and "Club A Gogo", meanwhile, hinted at a substance-fuelled hedonism that gave the lie to UK bubblegum pop. Burdon's Animals had a roughness and charm all the more enticing for those sweaty, ill-fitting suits they always sported. Perhaps it was hailing from Newcastle that did it. --Everett True

Format: Audio CD
When I bought this CD I thought that it would be a typical remastered greatest hits compilation CD
But what makes this CD stand out from the rest is the fact that the featured tracks are
all in the correct release order and includes not only all the A sides but also includes the original B sides........ which is great for Animalaholics..... 10 out of 10

Format: Audio CD
This is not the most complete or favoured Animals compilation but I have two reasons for preferring it to the others available. Firstly, it deals with both sides of the singles in chronological order. So, the first a-side, 'Baby let me take you home' is followed by its b-side and so on. I find it more satisfying to listen to the band through their gradual development rather than jumping from one era to another and back again. The other compilations can be somewhat disjointed by comparison. This album reminds you of how singles used to be made. Both tracks would be recorded before a final decision on what would be the a-side would be made. The result was often two sides of quality. So tracks like 'Club A Go Go' belie their flipside status. The second reason for settling on this compilation is simply that the additional tracks featured on other albums are simply not necessary. Roughly speaking, the first half of this CD contains all of The Animals' classic moments. Covers of standards such as John Lee Hooker's 'Dimples' are OK but don't stand out against competing versions. The Animals, like many bands, lose some of their edge as they mature. The wildness that is such an advantage on their early recordings is absent on some of the later material. Fans won't be able to do without the later material of course, but if you're more of a casual admirer like me, this is as much of The Animals as you need.

I only bought this for "Baby let me take you home",but,on listening to more than just the few Animals well known tracks,found that they were infact talented and a really good group and not just a couple of hits wonders,which they were,well,a few actually,but found their lesser known tracks quite catchy and good listening,shame they argued so much and was infact just a two year stint,bit like the Monkees really,but more talented.I loved it....

A great collection of animal tracks. For those to whom The Animals are unknown it is a good introduction to their earthy driving style of playing.

Best sounding EMI comp 17 April 2007
By R. Heath - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Despite the fact that this compilation was released in 1987 (or perhaps because of it) this is still by far the best sounding compilation of The Animals EMI/Mickie Most sides. No noticeable noise reduction or compression and more or less straight transfers for the masters - another Steve Hoffman forum favourite.

Greatly Recommended at the Steve Hoffman Music Forum 2 May 2009
By Trevor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the greatest recommendations from the Steve Hoffman music forum. Other early Animals CDs all have something wrong with their sound. The sound has been futzed around with to the point of distraction. This EMI CD from 1987 presents these tracks in glorious mono with an in the room presence not found elsewhere. Buy with confidence.
Fantastic album, but it had a large problem... 15 Mar 2013
By Annie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Eric Burdon is my favorite singer and The Animals are my favorite band, so, naturally, I loved this album! However, there were some issues with the CD disc itself. The track list on the front of the disc and on the jewel case listed the proper order of the songs - Baby Let Me Take You Home was supposed to be first, Gonna Send You Back To Walker second, House of the Rising Sun third, and so on, but when I listened to the CD the songs were programmed in the order that the 2-disc Animals Singles Plus album had its songs programmed! I didn't mind too much at first, but then I realized that if I wanted to listen to House of the Rising Sun I would inadvertently end up listening to I'm Crying, and the same went for the rest of the songs. I don't know if every copy of Singles Plus is mislabeled this way or not, but it was disappointing...

All I've done is gripe: the sound quality was very good, and these are all original recordings. The Animals were such a good band, and Eric Burdon was and still is a phenomenally gifted vocalist. So if you can cope with the irritating mislabeling issue (if it is the case with all Singles Plus discs), then by all means acquire this collection!
