Eric Burdon & The Animals - When I Was Young The MCA Recordings 1967-1968 - 5CD
Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a new boxed set featuring all of the albums recorded by Eric Burdon & The Animals for the MGM Records label issued between October 1967 and December 1968.
In December 1966, the original Animals ground to a halt. Vocalist Eric Burdon recruited Vic Briggs (guitar, piano), John Weider (guitar, violin, bass), Danny McCulloch (bass) and Barry Jenkins (drums) to form a new group which changed direction away from raucous Rhythm and Blues and embraced Psychedelic Rock and the influences of the emerging counter-culture.
Titled after their April 1967 debut single, "When I Was Young" includes the albums "Winds Of Change", "The Twain Shall Meet", "Every One Of Us", and "Love Is". Also included in the collection is the rare mono version of the "Winds Of Change" album and ten non-LP tracks released as singles.
All remastered from recently located original master tapes, the package also includes an illustrated booklet with new essay and a replica poster.
