Playlist by Algernon Following on from recent lists delving into Beat music, I thought I’d look at one band The Animals or Eric Burdon and the Animals. Burdon was from Newcastle upon Tyne, where the band started. They moved to London in 1964. The Animals performed mostly R&B, rock and blues in later year’s psychedelia. […]Eric Burdon and The Animals — Window Dresser’s Arms, Pig & Whistle
When this song first came out, I fell in love with it. For a pre-teen, there was so much mysticism and outright coolness to how Eric Burdon wove his tale. Enhancing the experiences with the jazz flute, the woman speaking Spanish, and the rest of War, a spell was woven. The rawness of the chorus […]Novelty Song Friday #7 — “Spill The Wine” by Eric Burdon and War — Tao Talk
Eric Burdon and The Animals recorded their song ‘Monterey’ in 1968 on their album The Twain Shall Meet.

Eric Burdon is one of my all-time heroes. I have seen him many times over the years so I couldn’t resist going to see a hometown concert at Newcastle City Hall. Eric Burdon is a legendary figure with a giant, deep, soulful voice. He took The Animals from Newcastle to the top the charts, London […]Eric Burdon Newcastle City Hall Sat 23 Jun 2018 — Vintagerock’s Weblog.

Happy birthday to The Eggman. From The Animals to his work with WAR to Black Man’s Burdon, he’s another important part of why I dig what I dig. You gotta get a guru.
Most R&R fans don’t really know what happens back stage; can you tell us a little about your experience?
That’s a really tough question right from the start. Wow! Way to start with a bang!
Mainly because it takes me most of the book to truly give you an accurate picture of what the real world behind the scenes at a concert is really all about.
