I have never read a positive review about Every One Of Us, still is is considered a classic where I come from ( that's Amsterdam, Holland ). It was spinned in the clubs much more than Twain was at the time and we loved it.
Just like e.g. Traffic & Family, Burdon followed up a trippy psych album with a well crafted, more down to earth effort. This is probably the best playing you'll ever hear by Burdon's Animals. The spanner in the wheel for much of his audience were the spoken parts Burdon used to vent his political spleen. These are no problem to me, I even understand The Immigrant Lad's bar conversation between a Londener and a Geordie on this CD release ( LOL !! ) and the US fighter pilot monologue in New York 1963/America 1968 is downright chilling and right on the money....... Sadly it's those spoken pieces that date the album as a timepiece, where otherwise it would have been in the same timeless class as Traffic II and Family Entertaiment.
Someone's done a superb job on the re-mastering, the music is right in your face ( or in your ears if you prefer ), but the bonus track 45 edit of White Houses ( which cuts out pratically all of the famous guitar solo ) I can do without. Mercifully it's the last track........
Thank god I can finally retire my old vinyl copy, the one with the involuntairy surf and campfire noises.......... and be warned: if you are into Burdon or into the music of the late 60-s, this is a mandatory album ! Get a copy yesterday.....
