The Animals - The Best of the Animals (MGM Records – SE-4324, 1966 🇺🇸) There are Beatle people and Stones people, but there are also Zombies, Hollies, and Animals people. Sometimes the Animals strike me the wrong way, lacking authenticity or just missing the blues grit that they always chased. Sometimes, they just about manage to grab that brass ring. That’s where this compilation comes in handy. Super clean, too and sounds okay.
