MORE INFO

Unlike most of the London-based, middle class art school types adopting the blues, the Animals came from a tough working class area of Newcastle. Despite their somewhat scruffy appearance and what appeared to be homemade haircuts, their pure gutsy performances went down a storm around the UK. This album taken from live sessions broadcast in 1964 finds the group in fine fettle and features recordings from that first successful year when they sounded so fresh and exciting. Here they are playing blues standards by the likes of Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker and Chuck Berry, just like they did when they cut their debut self-titled LP that same year. They’re gonna howl tonight! All tracks in Mono.
