4.0 out of 5 stars Their later hippy stage, 18 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Very Best Of (Audio CD)
No, you will not find songs like House of the Rising Sun on this CD, but you will find some more hippy sounding songs and not as blusey. Well their still are some blues numbers like the brilliant 'I put a spell on you', which sung in Burdon's wonderful voice just sounds absolutely wonderful. Also a very clever version of Randy Newman's "Mama told me not to come" illustrates their ability to make well-known songs sound their own. The track "Gin house blues" obviously suggesting his later problems with drink. A good half of the tracks are actually written by Eric Burdon himself, which can explain the fact that the tracks have a more phsychedelic sound to them. Tracks like 'Sky Pilot' are not very taxing on the brain to work out what they are about!
Fun is also something that can be heard easily on this album, starting with a message -with upbeat backing- to San Franciscan nights about moving to San Francisco if you can't understand the song always makes me laugh. Even without the classics buy it it's really good!
