A totally great set of work by The Animals – a special
package that brings together each individual album issued in the US during their Mickie Most years, plus 16 bonus tracks as well, all with new remastering, new notes, and a limited edition t-shirt as well! The group here have a great rough sound – much more bluesy than in later years, which turns out to be a perfect setting for the young Eric Burdon – whose vocals soar out wonderfully over a mix of original tunes and remakes of American classics by folks like Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley, and others! Producer Mickie Most really knows how to keep the right sort of edge on the tunes – lots of raw power in the instrumentation, especial
ly the Hammond and guitar – and a stark, dark quality to Eric's vocals that went onto become the stuff of legend. This package features the full albums I Just Wanna Make Love To You, The Animals, The Animals On Tour, Animal Tracks, and Animalization – plus lots of bonus tracks, a t-shirt, more notes, and a special
box to hold everything too.
