4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album but Short in Liner Notes, 2 Aug 2009
I Like Very Much the Music on this Album I owned the Original LP,and Now I am Able to have it in CD, my only Complain is the Liner Notes wich give a Good History on the Animals but Fell Short on details about this Album,it's only suggested that the Animals recorded it because of the Money and not much Else (I'm Surprised because the Liner Notes were written by Chris Welch )there's no Information on the Session and How was it Possible to reunite Alan Price and Eric Burdon in the Same Room after all the bitter Feelings in regard to The "House of The Rising Sun" Royalties and other Problems between Them and The Rest of The Band.
The Digipack is Nice and some of The Photographs in the Booklet are very good and The Music is SUPERB,EXCELLENT.

5.0 out of 5 stars All The History is Here, 2 Aug 2009
I Liked this Book a lot, it has all the History about the Pirate Radio Stations, the Author Explains everything from the Beginning on How Ronnan O'Rahilly wanted to Promote some of the Artists wich he Managed but the BBC and Radio Luxembourg weren't willing to,and taking the ideas from the First Offshore Stations in Denmark,Sweden,the Netherlands, and then Creating his own Offshore Station Radio Caroline, the Story goes on including the New stations wich were appearing on the Scene ( Radio London,Radio City,Radio England,Radio Scotland) the Book is Superbly Illustrated You Get Pictures of all the Ships that were Used as Offshore Stations as well as The Forts that were also Used for Broadcasting,The Book Also explains in detail How the British Goverment began to Legislate in order to Stop the Stations and also talks about the legislation in Europe in regard of this matter the Explanation is Very Good and in Easy terms it makes it easier to Understand, then Explains the Fierce Competition between the Stations and explain some interesting Stories behind the Romantic Facade of The Stations in wich sometimes ocurred crimes,violence,sabotage,Bombings,and everything You Could Imagine.
After Reading This Book You Get the Importance of The Pirate Radio Stations in order to Promote a lot of great Performers and Groups wich otherwise Could not have made it Because of the Monopoly of The BBC I Think that a Lot of Talent and Good Music wich emanated from The UK in the Sixties and Seventies has a lot to do with These Stations and the Goals the Got giving Free Radio to the People.Excellent Book on the Subject.
