In addition to the review below I would like to retract my statement about the album being a bootleg. At the time that I wrote my review I had no way of finding out if the Oxford label existed. I couldn't find any information.

This is a very nice collection because this CD holds the complete Animalism album that was released in the US in November 1966, just two months after the break-up of the original Animals. Out of the twelve tracks of Animalism only two tracks had appeared in the UK on the similar titled album Animalisms, being 'That's All I Am To You' and 'Outcast', the latter being an alternate take. This makes the US album highly interesting and the few CD versions that are floating around are quite expensive.
That is why I jumped on this particular version when I saw it on a record fair recently. As a bonus the tracklist of the CD doubled with the addition of 12 bonus tracks, ranging from 1964 until 1968.
Having listened to the CD I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the album. I think that Animalism might be the best album the original line up produced.
The sound quality of the CD is not the best. I have a feeling that this CD was assembled by people - possibly fans - who had no acces to the original mastertapes and decided to transfer a a vinyl album to CD. The bonus tracks, although a bit of a mixed bag, are nice. Some alternative tracks, Single edits, BBC recordings and B-sides.
The combination of the rare US Animalism album, the mixed bag approach of the bonus tracks and a closer inspection of the CD's art work leads me to the conclusion that this set must be a bootleg. But if this is a bootleg, it's clearly made by people who love The Animals!

Not Sure of exactly what he contributed, but this Album has Arrangements and rumored Performances on Guitar by Frank Zappa!
