I was just about to edit my post stating that some of his post invasion Animals songs was with his group War.

The songs I mentioned were not minor hits.
"Spill the Wine" went to #3 in the U.S.
"San Franciscan Nights, #9...(#1 in Canada)
"SkyPilot", #14
"See See Rider, #10, (#1 in Canada...Oh those Canadians)

Dibbity, You are RIGHT!!!!!!!
"See See Rider" was the last single before the 'Eric Burdon' era, 1966, according to Wikipedia. Seems like I was out of High School when that song came out but apparently not.
But once again, I say to you, "See what you have done."

"San Franciscan Nights" should be the anthem of the Haight Ashbury era. Brings chills.

When people get pushy you can sing "It's My Life" or "Don't Bring Me Down"

In regards to my put-down of Eric Burdon's psychedelic period: I will admit When I Was Young is a great record (love the Iron Man opening 4 years before Black Sabbath did Iron Man). There is also an excellent version of that song recorded by Tina Turner around the time of Private Dancer but it was relegated to a B-side. Monterey and Sky Pilot I think are decent albeit very dated records.
But when I think of Eric Burdon's psychedelic period, I particularly think of his version of Paint It Black in the Monterey Pop movie, and that I frankly think is an embarrassment.

Ed, maybe they weren't minor hits, but they certainly don't compare to such great songs such as 'House of the Rising Sun', 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood', 'We've gotta Get out of This Place', 'It's My life', and 'Don't Bring Me Down'. They were good songs, but I don't think they compare in quality to the songs The Animals did between 1964 and 1966. Some of their album cuts from that era are great songs also, such as 'Boom, Boom' a John Lee Hooker cover, and, 'Gonna Send You Back To Walker. Just my opinion.

Needless to say, The Animals were a great band. I'm reading the back of their first album, and, they all mention, with the exception of Alan Price, that Ray Charles was a big influence on them.

If your thinking of Paint it Black by the Stones you are right on.

J. Hix says:
Well put. The same could be said for the Stones. Their best stuff was 64-65 and nearly all from Americas' great black musicians like Robert Johnson.

Since we've segued to the Animals and their psychedelic period, nothing could epitomize that era for the Animals more than the 'B' side to "When I Was Young", a song called "A Girl Named Sandoz", in reference to Sandoz pharmaceutical labs that legally produced LSD.

Also, speaking of the Nashville Teens, mid-1966 Animal drummer John Steel left the band, and was replaced by Barry Jenkins of the Teens (1966 until the split in '69). The original Animals regrouped in 1975-76 (Burdon/Valentine/Price/Chandler/Steel)

Favorite Animals songs: "Hey Gyp" and "Inside Looking Out"

Dibbity, I'm referring to the earlier one. You're right about the success of those bands but my response concerned the post I responded to which suggested jumping on the Pepper bandwagon.

Los Bravos

What a great song. I make 60's compilations all the time for my vehicle. That and "HusH" by Deep Purple are on just about everyone of them. Interesting to note. I searched almost 40 years to find the follow-up to Black is Black, which is a song called "Bring a little Lovin".. It's a great song and I finally have it on CD. Check out youtube to see and hear it.

DOn't bring me down was a Great, Great AM Radio hit. Still my favorite Animal Song.

Nice pick Joe with Don't Bring Me Down.

Another Animals fave for me is Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.
I noticed Robben Ford did a cover of this song on his Blue Line release Handful Of Blues from '95... Seems interesting.
I need to order it--maybe after my Chris Cain cd arrives.

ps-regarding Sky Pilot---man, I love that song. It gets played occasionally on the oldies station i listen to.

I remember owning The Twain Shall Meet when i was a kid (actually had to look it up here as i couldn't remember the title) and the '...how high can you fly..." part didn't have the echo effect on it. The cd version offers the 'single' versions. Monterey from this album was great, too.

Man, i traded away too many records :( lol.

re: trading away records

Let's not even get into that!!!! When I went to College in 1970, My Mom (bless her soul), took all my Beatle 45 picture sleeves (original)
and thru them OUT!! OUCH. I have replaced most of them with the exception of "Can't Buy Me Love". way to expensive.

Anyway, During the Punk era, I took all of my 60's lp's and traded them in for Punk Lp's. That was a great investment. :o)

Happenings Ten Years Time Ago - The Yardbirds (with Jimmy Page on guitar). Or The Yardbirds with Jeff Beck, OR The Yardbirds with Eric Clapton.

Happenings Ten Years Time Ago features Jeff Beck on guitar and Jimmy Page on bass. Page was originally hired to replace Paul Samwell-Smith, but after a situation where Beck got sick on tour and the Yardbirds had to do some shows with Page on guitar and rhythm guitarist Chris Dreja playing bass, they decided to switch to a dual-lead set-up with Beck and Page while Dreja remained on bass. Unfortunately this lasted only a couple of months with only one song recorded (Stroll On from the movie Blowup), as Beck the quit the band.
