"I really bought this cd only for Sky Pilot. I was extremely dissapointed to find that not only was it not the full length version, but was actually the less desirable Part II. Why this was chosen is beyond comprehension since it never received airplay unless connected to the frontpiece and stands out as awkward without it. The rest of the disc is excellent but this glaring editing disaster makes the whole thing suffer. Cheap isn't always the way to go!"

"If you would be looking for a Best of compilation by Eric Burdon and the Animals you would be better off buying `Best of Eric Burdon and the Animals 1966 E968E which in my humble opinion is about the best there is with most of their best songs but is now old, having been released in 1991, so needs remastering or something. To comment on the review below neither of these CDs have "House of the Rising Sun," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," and "We Gotta Get Out Of This PlaceEon them. Oh I wonder why Mr Bernabo? If you really were aware of music in the Sixties you might have realized that the original Animals fell apart in the latter half of 1966, Eric Burdon continued with essentially a new band EEric Burdon and the Animals. Slightly different name in quite a different style singing different songs."
Only Part Of The Best

"Although this is far from the "Best" of the Animals, it has some rare gems that are not always available on other collections. As one of the most authentic 'sounding' California bands (Burdon was British and moved to San Francisco), the Animals have produced great period songs from the sixties. These include the ultimately mellow, "San Franciscan Nights", the vibrant "Winds Of Change" and of course, the really exciting "Monterrey". Too bad "White Houses" and "Year Of The Guru" are missing, not to mention the wonderful, soulfully altered "River Deep, Mountain High".There are two cuts on this album that beg listening to as they are of the most unique that the Animals have recorded. "To Love Somebody" (written by the Bee Gees in 1967) is one of the most energetic and soulful versions, this listener has ever heard. It clocks in at over six minutes. The other song is probably one of the best anti-war songs, "Sky Pilot" with its synthesized soaring drums and the several chorus and bridge cuts. This is the long version and was released as a single with the B-Side carrying the last half of the song. It's a treasure."
