Nice Blues Workout By The Boys

"Ok, this isn't the best stuff the Animals ever put out, but it's an enjoyable, booze-soaked nighttime gig, with classic songs and performances.
Burdon seems to be enjoying himself, wailing through old standards like "Please Give Me Someone to Love," and the Leiber/Stoller classic, "Brother Bill." Great keyboards by Alan Price add to the enjoyment, though this stripped-down set has no organ accompaniment.
If you're a fan, you can't go wrong with this one."
The Lost Treasure

"It has been three decades since I had this album in my hands, I bought it blindly, or more correctly deaf-ly, just having read a review by some Stereo Review critic, and by then I knew I disagreed with some critics, but in this case I got a stunnig piece of musicianship, I was totally taken aback, floored, not because this album had nouvelle-cuisine to its cooking, it did not, rather the contrary was true, magnificent playing by old wise musicians, the keyboard work is truly humbling, the guitar is placed within the context of the band, played with quiet, gentle power, the rythm section impecable, with a profound sense of being great, and Eric, oh dear, the voice of a man, a saviour, a gospel and club singer blended salt and pepper, and now thank goodness I can get it¡¡¡¡¡"
