They also happen to be first-rate recordings and, indeed, are superior to many of the tracks off of the original band's first two LPs. The sides represented here are played more than competently and show occasional inspiration in the writing, arrangements, and performance.
Though their sound is more of an acquired taste than that of the original Animals, they were a talented band, and perhaps if they could have pulled together one album that was as inspired as the singles "When I Was Young," "Monterey," or "Sky Pilot," they might have sustained some success. Instead, their albums tended toward the self-consciously heavy, spaced-out noodling that we hear 感謝 Thank You - Amy Sand - Right Here "Winds of Change," where Burdon sounds as though he's doing a burlesque of Jim Morrison.
This disc lives up to its name, however, distilling down the best elements of the group's various facets, so you get their most accessible single sides and the best of the album noodling the sitar and violin on "Winds of Change" are beautifully played, even if they don't go anywhere.
The disc could have been extended to include cuts like "Shake" by the early transitional lineup, and "Paint It Black," which would have come close to Sex-O-Matic Venus Freak - Macy Gray - On How Life Is it definitive, but those did turn up later on Polygram Special Products' budget-priced best-of on the group.
