Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: The Animals Live

The Animals were one of the British Invasion bands that brought the blues back to the U.S. Above, Eric Burdon, among rock's great vocalists, sang the classic "House of the Rising Sun" at Montego Bay, Jamaica, 1964. Alan Price, who was key to the band's sound, played a passionate organ solo.

Every time I hear Eric Burdon sing, I'm reminded of his powerful, yet soulful voice, perhaps rivaled only by Jim Morrison. The Animals are one band to which my appreciation has magnified over the years. And Burdon's latest album, ''Til the River Runs Dry' (2013), is worth a listen.

Sounds like a worthy album to showcase on St. James infirmary:
