R&SRNR_164 – “THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF THE ANIMALS”
This episode salutes one of the great British invasion bands of the 1960s that we feel deserves more attention than it’s gotten, probably because their hits were only on the rock charts in the U.S. and the U.K. from 1964 to 1969.
These performers actually comprised two different groups – a founding lineup from 1962 to 1966. And then a brand-new act fronted by their original lead singer. We know you know that we’re talking about the Animals and then Eric Burdon & The Animals.
We’ll track every one of their hit singles starting with their iconic “House of the Rising Sun,” along with any original versions of those songs by other artists who inspired them. Plus, their original version of a song that later became a trademark tune for the Three Dog Night. We’ll also cover the U.S. and U.K. hit singles by two Animals alumni – Eric Burdon and Alan Price.
