The Animals - Animal Tracks (1965)

The Animals - Animal Tracks (American Release- MGM Records)

Recorded between July 1964 and June 1965.

Released on Sept 1965

The Animals' American release of Animal Tracks is a compelling showcase of their prowess in interpreting blues and R&B. The album features iconic tracks like "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," a poignant anthem that gained new meaning as an anti-Vietnam War song, and "Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood," a bright rendition of Nina Simone's hit. While some tracks, like the Bo Diddley homage "The Story of Bo Diddley," may be considered less captivating, the album is a testament to The Animals' impactful contribution to the mid-1960s music scene.
