====================================================================================================

Note:

Very proud to present what I believe is gonna be the definitive presentation of this precious material. No official release of this has yet occurred, nor does it seem likely that ABKCO is interested in doing one at this point.

All tracks have been sourced from the very best available sources; only lossless quality rips of all the transcription discs were used and we tried the find the lowest generation off-air material. My thanks once again to the unknown ripper of all these BBC 'Top of the tops' transcription discs. I have carefully remastered every track in my studio. Everything was done to bring the sound standard up-to-par to what would have been an official boxset.

We have included a PDF with all the radio sessions as documented by the BBC. A quick look tells us that almost nothing from 1964 has survived; only one song is included here (previously uncirculated until now). This means that no BBC recordings of the first three British killer singles ('Baby, Let Me Take You Home', 'House of the Rising Sun' and 'I'm Crying') are known to exist anymore. To remedy this loss somewhat, I have added a compilation of various TV appearances which includes the latter two tracks and also the underappreciated last British single of the original group: 'Don't Bring Me Down'.

There's plenty of quality material from the remaining years left and putting it in order gives a clear glimpse into the band's development. The Animals were a consistently solid band with strong musical ideals, and always just a little bit out of place in the competitive music biz. But the world was not standing still and by 1966 they found their popularity was on the wane. Eric Burdon formed a new band with some ace-musicians and continued where the old band had left off, while gradually becoming more confident as a writer which resulted in excellent songs like 'San Franciscan Nights', 'Monterey' and especially 'When I Was Young'. Still, the band broke up without much ado in late 1968.

Enjoy!

There is a killer bluesy song/track (almost instrumental, if not instumental) version at the end of the BBC Ass Blaster. I forgot the title.
And I've always been a fan of "Paint It Black" (love this arrangement). D.A Pennebaker used it in Monterey 1967 documentary/movie as well as "Monterey".

I've seen that there is more : at last "House of The New Rising Sun" !

Yes, great quality on this set even on much of the off-air material. It destroys all the commercial boots.

If there is anything that you (or anybody looking) would like a new link for, feel free to ask. The links sadly expire too quickly to keep up with popular demand. But it doesn't take long to make and post a new one.
Might you put up a new link of this fine and important set? I thought I had grabbed it, but the zip file wouldn’t work and for some reason it came up as saying 0 bytes. This sounds like a set for the ages. Many thanks.
