This review is from: The Complete Animals (Audio CD)
This collection pulls together all the Animals recordings made with producer Mickie Most, and with keyboardist Alan Price on-board. It shows the breadth of the Animals repetoire and, because it includes just about everything they recorded, it's limits too. Highlights are the ever-wonderful songs like House of the Rising Son, Bring it on Home to Me, Worried Life Blues et al. This collection also includes some fine rarities like the extended version of Talking About You, where Price really wigs out in his long organ solo. The poorer tracks like F.E.E.L. and I'm in Love Again are only poor because they sound so much like other songs on the collection (Talking About You and Take it Easy, respectively). But how far can you take a basic 12 bar blues or r'n'b song? In this *classic* 41 track collection, the Animals certainly show us!
