The original incarnation of The Animals, with Eric Burdon on vocals and Alan Price on organ, was the most authentically blues-y of the first wave British Invasion groups. Their first hit "House of the Rising Sun" transformed a folk standard into a heavy, swampy groove. Later singles were downright punk-y in their attitude even when they flirted with more traditional pop sounds. In 1967, a newly psychedelicized Burdon moved from England to San Francisco and forged a new line-up of The Animals with a gentler, more hippie-friendly sound. Two years afterwards, the front man struck out on his own.

The blues legacy of The Animals largely rests on their first pair of hit singles in the mid-'60s. Beyond those cuts, however, the perpetually evolving group tried out raga-rock heavy on mantra-like chants and Indian instrumentation ("Winds of Change"), heavy soul-rock seasoned with jazz-y swing ("River Deep, Mountain High"), and jammy, California-smooched folk-rock, in which front man Eric Burdon trades his brooding moans for psychedelic wordplay ("White Houses").
