Eric Burdon

As the lead singer of the Animals, Eric Burdon was one of the British Invasion's most distinctive vocalists, with a searingly powerful blues-rock voice. When the first lineup of the group fell apart in 1966, Burdon kept the Animals' name going with various players for a few years. Usually billed as Eric Burdon & the Animals, the group was essentially Burdon's vehicle, which he used to purvey a far more psychedelic and less R&B-oriented vision. Occasionally he came up with a good second-division psychedelic hit, like "Sky Pilot"; more often, the music was indulgent, dating it almost immediately. Burdon's real triumphs as a solo artist came at the beginning of the '70s, when he hooked up with a bunch of L.A. journeyman soul/funksters who became his backing band, War. Recording three albums' worth of material in the year or two that they were together, the Burdon/War records could ramble on interminably, and would have benefited from a lot of editing. But they contained some spacy funkadelia of real quality, especially their number three hit single "Spill the Wine," which was almost recorded as an afterthought in the midst of sessions dominated by exploratory jams. Eric Burdon & War were already big stars on record and stage when Burdon, for reasons unclear to almost everyone, quit the band in 1971. War defied expectations and became even bigger when left to their own devices; Burdon, after recording an album with veteran bluesman Jimmy Witherspoon, cut a series of generally desultory solo albums. He recorded off and on after that, at times with the Animals, but has never come close to reaching the heights of his work with the early Animals and War. Burdon was always a riveting live performer, though, and he continued to tour with various incarnations of the Animals and as a solo act, branching out as a painter and author as well, and working in the studio when it suited him.

Burdon continued on this journeyman path until well into the new millennium, recording such solid albums as 2004's My Secret Life and 2006's Soul of a Man. In 2012, he experienced an unexpected comeback when Bruce Springsteen made him a cornerstone of his keynote speech at South by Southwest. Burdon joined Springsteen on-stage and was soon in demand. First, he recorded an EP with the Ohio-based garage rockers the Greenhornes, and then he devoted himself to the full-length 'Til Your River Runs Dry, which received a high-profile launch in January 2013. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

take that pearl......a l o t of you writing are pretty cool but there's a couple of you who are idiots!!
An under appreciated song and artist. I am always misunderstoo d .
Love this version.
I'm only 30 years old but my father brought me up on The Animals and all the essential classic rock bands the list could go on forever so I won't list them. I wish I grew up in that era cuz there's no music like it was back then, there's an exception of few but for me it's not after the early 90's Grundge Scene. It's awesome that Eric Burdon is still doing stuff! He's one of the greatest artists to ever exist!

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works!
Eric burden is time less

True that Cindy Sue
the 60s were the best
he really takes me back to my high school dances
herecomes2mo r r o w
great voice. don't really like the music part of his stuff, though.
An amazing series of unforgettabl e songs.
Monterey, San Francisco Nights, Sandoz, See See Rider & I'm Crying.
I saw him live in Monterey, CA in 1999 & we were all mesmerized.
The only song I know he does is Spill the Wine. I guess I'll have to explore his albums to see if they bring back other fun memories.
WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH THE 60S? YOU OBVIOSLY WERENOT THERE.
bromide01
This guy needs to stop living in the 60's.
He came and went a long way for just a vocalist. I've dug him since my first joint.
Eric burden is very cutting edge and one of the most beloved artists of his time.....a real classic!!!!
putting out some his best music in years,with his recent albums!Soul of a man and My secret life.keep on singing it Eric!!!!
He was the man for years & years. I am guessing he quit in '71, for the same reason Barry Sanders quit football; he wanted to "go out" at the peak of his career, rather than begin the down-slope of his career. Plus, he probably had consumed some of the better quality acid in his day. That'll tweak a fella's brain-string s .
ERIC BURDON- ONE OF THE TOP SINGERS IN ROCK AND ROLL, KEEP ON KEEPING ON
