"For Those Of Another Generation......". Yep.....I guess we certainly were. Like many, I was turned onto this album back when I was a youngster in the late 60's and couldn't get enough of this album to the point of owning the mono & stereo vinyl versions as well as the 8 track and reel to reel audio tapes. My only complaint with any of the releases pertained to the overall "compressed" sound quality, especially on tracks such as "Paint It Black" & "Yes, I'm Experienced" (two of my favorites).

In the late 80's, Polydor finally released this album on CD and to my horror, the sound quality didn't differ one bit from the vinyl. Then came BGO in 2002 with their CD version, coupled along with The Twain Shall Meet (another great album) and although the mix had been somewhat improved, much of the compressed atmosphere still lingered. I began to believe that no actual master tapes would surface to right the various wrongs, but I was "Gratefully Dead" wrong ( a bonus track :)

As it turns out, Repertoire came to the rescue and did the impossible...gave a newly found face lift to the original grooves on this album and what we now have is the ultimate remastered version ever released during the past 37 years since it was first recorded. The original muffled high end frequencies now have a uniformity of clarity & brightness never heard before throughout the entire album. It's amazing to finally be able to hear what Barry Jenkins drumming really sounds like.

If you're a fan of this brilliant album, I strongly recommend you buy a copy and hear it for the VERY first time in your life and while you're at it, also pick up a copy of The Twain Shall Meet also released by the good folks at Repertoire. They deserve numerous kudos for their excellent work and I look forward to seeing what other albums they release in the future.

I've had this eratic--but brilliant 1967 masterpiece in one form or another (both vinyl and cd) for most of its 37 years of existence up to this point, but never have I heard it sound anywhere near as good as does this 2003 remaster on Repertoire. Both the Polydor and One Way cd reissues were marred with tape hiss which, combined with a relatively low recording level, made for somewhat muffled, muted sound. No such problem here: The sound is strong and crisp...obviously first-generation. That said, a few additional thoughts:
This is the first, and (in my humble opinion) the best of the four original albums by the revamped, psychedelic Animals line-up Eric Burdon formed in late 1966. This band actually made its debut on record in the late winter/early spring of 1967 with the terrific "When I Was Young"/bw/"A Girl Named Sandoz" single. They performed at the legendary Monterey Pop Festival in June, and it was during that time period that the songs for this album were being written and recorded. I really cannot think of another album from the psychedelic era which runs as wide a gamut as does this one: From the rollicking, electric Hendrix answer "Yes, I'm Experienced" to the downright eerie, solemn "The Black Plague," from the brooding self-deprecation of "Poem By The Sea" to the back-to-R&B roots rough edge of "It's All Meat." Now, if you are endeavoring to read this, you probably know about all that, but you may not know about a couple of the bonus tracks on this edition of the album. The mono single versions of Good Times" and "San Francisco Nights" (notice the difference in the title) are not really all that different from the stereo versions, save for perhaps offering Burdon's vocal a tad more prominence.

When I try to think of an album in which the music is polar opposite to the performer's characteristic sound, this is the one that come to mind. In Winds of Change, the blues/rock, roots sound of The Animals metamorphoses into a darkly atmospheric, instrumentally sparse, poetically versed concept album of Eric Burdon. It is a masterwork.
Though I say "instrumentally sparse" (certainly from a rock and roll perspective), this recording is at the same time instrumentally and atmospherically (with frequent sound effects) rich, and even occasionally lush. As to sound effects, guess what we hear in the title cut and the next number, "Poem by the Sea"? But violins and horns enhance a number of songs, and varied percussion and vibrations are often prominent. The lead guitar usually sounds Spanish, not really flamenco, more soft and simple, without flourishes, to let Eric's spoken words be more dominant. Indeed, Burdon pronounces the words very clearly throughout, unlike in some of his other work, creating poetry that punctuates an atmosphere that is usually haunting or dark, and often subdued. The result is songs that are sometimes sensuous, and at other times beautiful and highly evocative. The best case in point of the latter is the lovely ballad "Anything," perhaps the best song on the album, with Eric expressing passionately what he would do for a friend, who seems to be a female, backed by pretty guitar and gorgeous violin arrangements. Both "Good Times" and "San Franciscan Nights" are sweet and sentimental, and excellent songs. The former is actually also sort of melodramatic, embellished by violins and the sudden appearance of a crowd.
"The Black Plague" and "Man-Woman" are not songs, but poetry surrounded by sound effects.
