Animals

LP (Item 653656) MGM, 1964 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Animals — Animals (180 gram pressing) ... LP 27.99
The seminal first album from The Animals – a set that came out at a time when the whole UK scene was smitten with blues and soul influences from the US – yet a record that still managed to really stand out from the pack! Part of that's because of the fantastic lead vocals from Eric Burdon – still just a kid at the time of recording, but able to work with this searing intensity that seems to put most of his contemporaries to shame – belting out lyrics with a quality that really transforms the tunes, and has them finding a way into the rock canon without sounding like shameless ripoffs at all. Titles include their classic "House Of The Rising Sun" – plus "I'm Mad Again", "Baby Let Me Take You Home", "Right Time", "Gonna Send You Back To Walker", "The Girl Can't Help It", "Blue Feeling", and "Talkin Bout You".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Love Is
MGM, 1968. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic double-length set from The Animals – recorded in LA in the late 60s, and with plenty of great Sunset Strip influences in the mix!

Eric Burdon & The Animals

Winds Of Change
MGM, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
The Winds Of Change are definitely afoot in the sound of The Animals – as the album's one of their most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Burdon & The Animals

Every One Of Us
MGM, 1968. Very Good
Another gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Burdon & The Animals

Twain Shall Meet
MGM, 1968. Very Good+
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Katy Lied
ABC, 1975. Very Good+
Steely Dan really hitting the heights – moving into hipper, more sophisticated territory than before – pushing the envelope with both their music and lyrics, which are completely sublime!

Steely Dan

Greatest Hits
ABC, 1970s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
We've always considered Steely Dan one of the quintessential 70s "Album Oriented Rock" bands, in that all of there albums work so well as a whole, so the idea of a greatest hits collection doesn't exactly work for us. Still, taken out of context, these songs are still gems, and listening ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rickie Lee Jones
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots!
