Default The Animals

I checked to see if there is a thread on them but alas, none!

The Animals are a great blues rock English group from the 60's. After having a blue/folk sound in the early 60's they then changed management and ended up doing more psychedelic style music with silent beginnings and heavy/raw endings. They were considered part of the "British Invasion".



The song I most enjoy is the one they covered:



Their albums include:

The Animals (1964; The Animals; US)
The Animals (1964; The Animals; UK)
The Animals on Tour (1965; The Animals; US)
Animal Tracks (1965; The Animals; UK)
Animal Tracks (1965; The Animals; US)
Animalisms (1966; The Animals; UK)
Animalization (1966; The Animals; US)
Animalism (1966; The Animals; US)
Eric Is Here (1967; Eric Burdon & The Animals; US)
Winds of Change (1967; Eric Burdon & The Animals)
The Twain Shall Meet (1968; Eric Burdon & The Animals)
Every One of Us (1968; Eric Burdon & The Animals; US)
Love Is (1968; Eric Burdon & The Animals)
Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted (1977; The Animals)
Ark (1983; The Animals)

They wrote one of the better songs about a city. I love the spoken word opening.

Their rendition of "the house of the rising sun" will always be a classic. Killer organ solo

Being from the North East of England and calling myself a music fan, it is unofficially the law that I must at least know of Brian Johnson's pre-AC/DC days in Geordie (and trust me, I have been quizzed, especially when I used to go out in Newcastle wearing an AC/DC jacket), Dire Straits (even though none of them were born around here, this is where the band were formed and they are loved here), and The Animals.

Given The Animals' members were from all over the North East and not just Newcastle, Alan Price being from my little town, about 2 minutes from here, then it is considered especially important to know their stuff.

I haven't listened to the band for years. It may be time to dig out their self titled and Animalism!

Oh you have to! It's nice to see there are some people out there that appreciate the Animals.

Default The Animals - We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

From a 1965 T.V. show and the vocals are live. This is not a lip-synch. Although the music itself sounds pre-recorded.

eric burdon had the most powerful voice of any british invasion singer. but his voice only worked for blues and r&b, not for psychedelia
