They were right among the first rank of British Invasion bands, with 11 American chart hits in their first two years of existence. They were responsible for some of the most enduring recordings of their era, songs like "The House of the Rising Sun" (which famously caused Bob Dylan to jump out of his car seat when he first heard it on the radio) and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." And their lead singer, Eric Burdon, had (and still has) one of the most distinctive voices in all of rock 'n' roll. Yet, unlike their famous peers, the Animals have never had a box set devoted to their work...till now, 50 years after their first release!

The Mickie Most Years and More offers for the first time ever on CD the group's first four American albums (all of which charted, the first three produced by Mickie Most) The Animals, The Animals on Tour, Animal Tracks and Animalization in their original mono versions, all newly remastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering from the original tapes. And each album features a bevy of bonus tracks, 16 in all, including their first release ever, the I Just Wanna Make Love to You EP that came out on the Graphic Sound label in 1963 (later reissued by Decca in 1965 as In the Beginning There Was Early Animals), four tracks previously unreleased in the U.S., three single versions (including "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" and "It's My Life"), four alternate versions (three in stereo) of such tracks as "Talkin' 'Bout You" and "Don't Bring Me Down," and one U.K.-only track ("Roadrunner)." Liner notes to each album are by Rolling Stone's David Fricke and, to sweeten the pot even more, we're including an Animals T-shirt (100% cotton; size extra large) exclusive to this set.

No collection of British Invasion and, for that matter, '0s rock and roll is complete without these records...this collection brings it on home. Brought to you by ABKCO Music and Records and Real Gone Music!
