The Animals - The Animals


Released on Sept 1964

Recorded between January 22 and July 31, 1964

The Animals' self-titled debut album epitomizes the British Rock invasion by repackaging American blues and Rhythm Blues. Fronted by the legendary Eric Burdon, The album includes the iconic hit "The House of The Rising Sun," known for its haunting guitar, organ, and Burdon's dynamic vocals. The track's origins date back to a 16th-century ballad, showcasing the Animals' ability to reinterpret traditional songs. The album features diverse covers like Chuck Berry's "Around and Around" and John Lee Hooker's "I'm Mad Again." Despite subsequent lineup changes, The Animals left an indelible mark on popular music.
