Eric Burdon joined The ALAN PRICE COMBO in 1962 and soon after they changed name to
The ANIMALS, a great 60s R&B band fronted by the near black voice of Eric.
Greatest Hit "House Of The Rising Sun" a trad. song, the bands arrangement was the best known.
Alan Price left the band and was replaced by Dave Rowberry.
Next change came in 1966, first with drummer John Steel, for him came
Barry Jenkins (Ex-Nashville Teens)and shortly after Chas Chandler went into
management and producing (Best known for Jimi Hendrix, Slade).
Eric formed in beginning of 1967 a new band, this time more psychedelic and progressive.
With parts of old and new band he recorded for US (MGM) release only the album "ANIMALSM"
(totaly different to "Animalsms") and a Solo LP.
This new group recorded between 1967 and beginning of 1969 four recommended psych LPs and
was most of the time located in the USA.
Next step was his two year stint with mainly black musicians... "WAR".
