White blues at its best?

"The review below refers to the original Animal Tracks album from 1965 with a totally different song collection. This one looks like a compilation of the Eric Burdon & the Animals hits from 1966-68.A couple of years ago at a party in Virginia I was dancing with a beautiful European girl to the Animals' "For Miss Caulker" song. The lady was just a putty in my hands, enjoying the rhythm and the wild singer's voice. When the song ended, she was about to leave the party with yours truly when I made a stupid remark that this was really a white band playing the blues. I got dropped like a hot potato and had to find my consolation listening to another gem from the album: "How You've Changed".This is white blues at its best from 1965, seen from the perspective of Newcastle, England. Try these two songs with any European, they will go for it, whatever their sex orientation. And in the end, this is the best blues of 1965, seen from any point. Today you can make an album with any song compilation. These two great songs will make your list for the ultimate swinging machine."
