Editorial Reviews

Til Your River Runs Dry, Eric Burdon's most personal album to date, features original tracks written by Burdon including Water, Bo Diddley Special, The River Is Rising, Wait and Memorial Day with a blues-rooted feel that has made him one of the most enduring artists spawned by the British Invasion of the 1960s. Til Your River Runs Dry was produced by Burdon and Tony Barnacle and recorded in New Orleans and Southern California where Eric recorded his last two albums. Til Your River Runs Dry is the long awaited return of one of rock's most creative, incisive songwriters and, certainly, an unparalleled vocal force.

A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time, Eric Burdon continues as a vital contemporary artist while his legacy as front man of The Animals, with WAR at its inception and as a solo artist continues to grow as his influence enjoys a resurgence with both new artists and superstars.

Customer Reviews

Have enjoyed listening to it so many times since I bought it.

Eric Burdon and the Animals were one of my favorite groups in the 70's so I was very interested when I saw that he was releasing some new music.
Debi Elwood
Great album, great voice, great musicians, I didn't expect such a marvellous music.

"It's My Life," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," "House of the Rising Sun," "Don't Bring Me Down," and so many more. Eric Burdon and the Animals were a very unique and original band and his later work with War and on "The Twain Shall Meet" ("Sky Pilot," etc.) is also quite unique. These songs were much deeper, more raw and gritty than a lot of what was being played at the time. They were fantastic and many of us have never stopped listening to them. I listen to this day, I play guitar and sing "House of the Rising Sun" frequently and it never gets old to me...I love 'em all still.

And now the old man looks back and marvels that he has survived (as do many of us) and shares a bit more with us. Proof that creative expression can endure. There have been some very middling releases of EB material over the years, so it is nice to be able to say that this new release is not of that sort, but is indeed a serious effort worthy of a listen.

The set opens with "Water" an introspective rocker which sets the tone for what follows. "Memorial Day" recalls the hit "Monterey" to me and is a good song. "Devil and Jesus" is a nice rocking blues. There are some surprises, "Wait" is a particularly touching and poignant love song that is quite beautiful - it's one of my favorites so far. "Old Habits Die Hard" is a real rocking blues number than brings back the 60's Animals vibe. As does "In The Ground" while "Bo Diddley Special" lives up to its name. "27 Forever" seems to suit the theme of this CD pretty well and echos a bit of the opening number. "Medicine Man" is another early favorite as I get to know these songs. It's one of the better produced songs, I think, and features some very nice vocals by Eric.

If this were a Hollywood movie nobody would believe it, but at the age of 71, with Til Your River Runs Dry, Eric Burdon may have made the best album of his storied career. I know many of you won't believe the hype I'm putting out there, but all I can say is, "Give it a listen and then get back to me." By the way, I'm 61 years old and have been a fan since I was a teenager. I know there are a lot of old, and perhaps some young, fans out there who are going to be blown away by this. I don't really see the point in reviewing the songs one by one, they are all good and Eric has a first class band backing him up. I really just want everyone to know how great I think this album is, and I don't use the word "great" lightly.

This living legend lives up to his status yet again. His music is a breath of fresh air among a pool of talentless noise we hear today. Highly recommend!

WHAT .... AN .... ALBUM!!!! And totally out of the blue. I was in high school in the 60s when Eric Burdon and the Animals hit the scene. House of the Rising Sun, We Gotta Get Out of This Place, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. All popular tunes at the high school dances. Then came Winds Of Change which is in my all time top 20 albums. I still have the vinyl, a little scratchy but still as satisfying today as it was then. I am happy for Eric. He deserves this and this album is up there with the great ones. Today's music is terrible compared to the 60s and 70s and early 80s. I look forward to releases by these "old timers". And River Runs Dry is on my daily play list. The CD is in my car, the MP3s on my computer and Water gets played on my guitar. Simple chords, Am, Em, etc. Eric's still passionate voice makes this a big hit and I congratulate him for sticking to what earned him the greatness he so deserves. GREAT ALBUM!

I put this Cd in my car about a week ago and I just can't stop playing it. I just sounds fantastic, Eric Burdon at his best. Music well played and produced with a lot of soul and feeling. It could easy be an early 70's Animals CDs or even a 70's Rolling Stones CD. Highly recommended! As good as R&B and Hard rock and roll can get!

I have been an Eric Burdon fan ever since I rushed into my local record store to purchase "Don't Let Me be Misunderstood" as a 45 rpm single. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. It's nice to see Eric back as a senior reflecting on life. His voice has taken on a gravelly sound, and the lyrics of these songs are very introspective. My favorite is "Devil and Jesus." It's great to listen to, but I'm also glad the words are included. "Wait" is very nice too. It's got a bit of the Spanish flair to it. From the Animals to WAR; from a solo stint to "Guilty" with Jimmy Witherspoon; and now "Til Your River Runs Dry." It's been a meaningful evolution for this artist.

He was the lead singer of the Animals,one of the key founders/presenters of War and has continued to have a prolific and musically fruitful solo career as well. Between the more commercially inclined Mick Jagger to the almost blues purism of John Mayall and Paul Butterfield Eric Burden has always been that important missing link in the British blues/rock scene of the 60's that has knocked down any gaps that have existed between blues,rock and soul music. That's left his sound open to a number of different stylistic changes over the years. Well now it's 2012 and half a century has passed since Eric first made his musical debut as a member of the Animals. He has watched generations of people,time and music come and go. And in the case of music,often come around again. Somehow though the music he based his entire career on,R&B,has continued to thrive. And in terms of Eric himself thrive it does.

The album opens with two spirited blues rockers in "Water" and "Memorial Day",the latter reflecting strongly on the relationship between being against a war but supporting warriors who fight them. "Old Habits Die Hard" and "In The Ground" deal with the same rocking blues flavor on the topics of hard living and regret. On "Devil And Jesus" he uses the medium of hardcore southern soul to explore that mixture of the spiritual darkness and the light at the heart of all blues based music-including soul. "27 Forever" has a similar soul flavor and deals with that age when so many rock legends pass away and become shooting stars. "Wait" blends a clean,percussive bossa soul type flavor-a wonderful paean to romantic longing. On "River Is Rising"? Well he's talking the blues back to Congo Square with the infectious percussion of the Caribbean adding the main musical might.
