The Animals like many bands have various “Greatest Hits” or “Best of” recordings to choose amongst. I have been listening to The Animals music on Spotify to help determine which of the “Best” recordings to purchase and subsequently have Hilton Valentine sign for us.
I have decided that The Animals Retrospective is the Audio CD collection to order. I base that decision on the fact that the retrospective contains these post Animals and Eric Burdon/War classic hits.
I have always been enamored with the Eric Burdon & The Animals era from 1967-1968. The songs, “San Franciscan Nights”, “Monterey”, and “Sky Pilot” are FM recordings that shape our understanding about the flower power period in American music history.
This is an exciting time for Eric Burdon fans. Eric Burdon‘s solo album, ‘Til Your River Runs Dry on ABCKO drops tomorrow 1/29. Burdon’s new album coincides with the 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ANIMALS!
Publicity from Team Eric commences with Eric Burdon’s appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show which can be seen starting at 12:35 a.m. EST. Eric Burdon and his band will be performing with The Roots. MusicOfOurHeart will follow-up on this blog with the anticipated video clip of that performance when its published.
If you are in the New York City area tomorrow you can pick up a copy and see Eric in person at the J&R Records in-store “free” performance and signing! Click here for details and to RSVP.
