If you are looking for a good Animals compilation, DO NOT BUY THIS CD! It contains good songs murdered by awful, badly produced rerecording featuring the duffest arrangements possible (complete with cheesy 80s electric Piano) and a drummer who can't keep time properly.
Everything about it is unclear, it is a dirt-cheap swindle which doesnt tell you whether this really is the Animals or not. No effort went into this. The sleeve notes are sparse, the sound quality is bad, the CD itself looks like it is a CD-R, the arrangements are criminal and the cover is horrible, with the ugliest photo of the band ever taken.
Whether it be Eric Burdon solo songs or Animals songs, these are absolutely rubbish re-recordings on which it is unclear whether this really is the Animals themselves. Everything about this is unproffesional, it looks like it came off a third world illegal CD market! I hope I have convinced anyone with the slightest doubt in their mind NOT to buy this.
The only ever slightly okay tracks are the last 4: and they are not written by the Animals. This is awful. I wish I had never laid eyes on it and so will you if you buy it. STEER WELL CLEAR!

--especially when the label provides no documentation whatsoever as to exactly what the buyer is getting--but, of course, they never do, because hardly anyone would ever buy the album! If you are some sort of Eric Burdon and the Animals completist who's interested in having ALTERNATE VERSIONS of their classics, you might enjoy this album, otherwise you'll likely think it's garbage. I won't even dignify this release by describing the sound quality of the album or the relative merits of these versions of the songs. I will say that, despite the label's attempt at "pretty" packaging, the liner notes were non-existent--and the back of the CD booklet even said, something like, "see inside for licensing info," but when you open up the "booklet," it's blank inside! --nice presentation, guys!
As a collector, I had an inkling that this might be one of "those" albums, mainly due to the suspicious lack of information accompanying the album listing, but I had an Amazon gift certificate, so I decided to "take a flier" on it, because I'm trying to replace an old beat up Animals compilation tape I had, and this album had some songs that one can't normally get, all together, on other compilations. Well, here's another example of "if something seems too good to be true, it probably is."
I couldn't even bring myself to perpetuate this fraud on to another misguided soul, by trading it in at a used CD store, so I did something I've never done before: salvaged the jewel case, recycled the pitifully uninformative paper inserts, and broke the CD right in half! Yeah, gift certificate down the drain, but it was somewhat therapeutic taking this CD out of circulation forever.

The tracks on this CD are 1990's recording by a group formed and fronted by Danny McCulloch (bassist with Eric Burdon & The Animals in late 1960's) ... calling itself THE ANIMALS but containing no other 1960's members of The Animals or Eric Burdon & The Animals. Interesting re-recordings of 1960's hits made famous by The Animals and Eric Burdon & The Animals plus enjoyable new songs by McCulloch and Co but simply not THE ANIMALS and no Eric Burdon vocals on this CD.

If you bought this album, you're one of the shmucks, like me, who was the victom of a scam! Yes, this cd and the company who made it, was a scam. If by looking at the label, you thought, hey this looks like the perfect Animals collection; good price, good song material, all true, but, IT's NOT THE ANIMALS!!!!!!!!!!!!It is a bunch of modernized versions of old classics by The Animals. The guy who gave this cd a five star review, must be drunk, or deaf. I was so shocked when I first heard this cd. I kept skipping the tracks one by one, and every single one was modern and electronic-ized. It was like a bad friken dream! If I was old enough to sue, I'd sue this company for, well MISLEADINGNESS!!!!!!!!!!! This is absolutely a crime, and I should report this to "Seven On Your Side." I think you'll all agree, this is a big rip off scam!

I've been looking for the original American version of "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" ever since CD's came on the market. I have purchased several CD's of The Animals Greatest Hits, but they all have the original British version. I have the original American 45 RPM, so I know the song very well. The rest of the other Animal songs on those CD's are the original versions.
I thought I'd give this very inexpensive CD a shot. Well, not only is "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" a cover, the three other songs that charted in the United States are also covers. And, they are not even covered by Eric Burdon, but one of the other Animals. In fact, Eric Burdon does not even appear anywhere on this CD.
The 8 other songs on the CD are covers of other artist's songs, or songs I've never heard of. I don't mind paying good money for a CD if the song I'm looking for is the original (in this case, American) release. However, in this case, it was not. I do not recommend buying this CD, even at this low price.
