I really bought this cd only for Sky Pilot. I was extremely dissapointed to find that not only was it not the full length version, but was actually the less desirable Part II. Why this was chosen is beyond comprehension since it never received airplay unless connected to the frontpiece and stands out as awkward without it. The rest of the disc is excellent but this glaring editing disaster makes the whole thing suffer. Cheap isn't always the way to go!

I love this CD, but, as typical, the TITLE and PICTURE on it have little to do with its contents. The shot of the original Animals on the cover is meaningless, since it only includes selections from 1966-68, long after that line-up was gone. With two exceptions, the songs truly are from the "Eric Burdon AND the Animals" period, and the cover picture should have reflected that.
My advice is to buy this because both the price and the content are excellent, and then make your own cover to stick in the jewel case. I did, and added Vol. 3 to the title. If you cover up that incorrect cover photo (use anything, draw one with crayons if you have to), you'll suddenly find a new appreciation for this album. The material on it is excellent, and some of it is hard to come by.
The two non-EB&A songs are from The Animals' 1966's "Animalism," the last "Animals" album prior to regrouping in the 70s. The first song is their remake of the Sam Cooke classic "Shake," with everybody doing an excellent job.
The other is "All Night Long," which I always thought was an old blues standard re-worked, but was apparently written by Frank Zappa. He's credited with it anyway, and Zappa aficionados even maintain he plays guitar on it. However, that same album also credits a reworking of "Buy You A Chevrolet" to the British folkie Donovan and calls it "Hey Gyp."
Anyway, both cuts are excellent and you're not likely to run across the Animalism album out there, so it's nice to have some on this CD. (This "Animalism" album should not to be confused with an earlier album called "Animalisms," with an S, which was not released here in America. It was the British title for the original Animals' 1964 second album.

Ok this isnt "The Best of Eric Burdon And The Animals. However it is a good sampler from the 1966-1968 lineup. It contains HARD to find cuts from "Every One Of Us" "Animalism" and "love Is" The sound quality is very good. It isnt perfect,(edit part 2 of sky pilot included not full song) Anyway for the money its a deal.

If you would be looking for a Best of compilation by Eric Burdon and the Animals you would be better off buying `Best of Eric Burdon and the Animals 1966 E968E which in my humble opinion is about the best there is with most of their best songs but is now old, having been released in 1991, so needs remastering or something. To comment on the review below neither of these CDs have "House of the Rising Sun," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," and "We Gotta Get Out Of This PlaceEon them. Oh I wonder why Mr Bernabo? If you really were aware of music in the Sixties you might have realized that the original Animals fell apart in the latter half of 1966, Eric Burdon continued with essentially a new band EEric Burdon and the Animals. Slightly different name in quite a different style singing different songs.

Although this is far from the "Best" of the Animals, it has some rare gems that are not always available on other collections. As one of the most authentic 'sounding' California bands (Burdon was British and moved to San Francisco), the Animals have produced great period songs from the sixties. These include the ultimately mellow, "San Franciscan Nights", the vibrant "Winds Of Change" and of course, the really exciting "Monterrey". Too bad "White Houses" and "Year Of The Guru" are missing, not to mention the wonderful, soulfully altered "River Deep, Mountain High".
There are two cuts on this album that beg listening to as they are of the most unique that the Animals have recorded. "To Love Somebody" (written by the Bee Gees in 1967) is one of the most energetic and soulful versions, this listener has ever heard. It clocks in at over six minutes. The other song is probably one of the best anti-war songs, "Sky Pilot" with its synthesized soaring drums and the several chorus and bridge cuts. This is the long version and was released as a single with the B-Side carrying the last half of the song. It's a treasure.

Al escuchar aquel grupo de Eric Burdon and the Animals recuerdas tu infancia y la moda del vestido "Pantalones Acampanados" y peinados muy llamativos; las letras de las canciones claramente el descontento y rebeldía de la sociedad Juvenil.

Bought this as a gift for my husband. Unfortunately, Sky Pilot was NOT the full length version he was looking for. But Eric/Animals have always been a group I've remembered w/fondness, so I enjoy it myself.

Unfortunately, this is an edited version of the song, and it is not acceptable. This version should not be for sale. The full version is only available with the purchase of the entire album.
