Eric Burdon & the Animals: "Greatest Hits"

I still covet this jacket.
This LP was released in 1969.
Let's not talk about how long ago that was. The scary part is how well I remember the first time I heard most of the songs on this album, and quite of few of the subsequent times I listened to them, too.
(NOTE: some of The Animals' hugest hits - like "House of the Rising Sun," "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," "It's My Life," and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" - were on a previous "Best of " album released in 1966)

Eric Burdon's voice remains on my favorite's list.  The raw, angst-laden, natural energy is captivating.

This LP went to a fan in California.
