"I have been a fan for 35 years. Eric Burdon is one of the great singers of the 20th century and feels every lyric he sings. Those people who "complain and criticize" Eric and the band for new arrangements miss the point completely. (I know the type--if the song isn't done the way it was recorded in the studio it must be no good. Yeah, I know a lot of real progressives! They dislike Bob Dylan too, for daring to change!) If you love the music, if you love Eric Burdon, run to get this DVD. And the bits with him talking are great."
Great concert from Eric

"This DVD really captures how Eric and band were at the time, and still is. Erics voice is stil going strong, and he's as energetic as ever.
Old fans who haven't seen or heard of him in 30 years, might be disappointed because they haven't heard his work between the old, a bit boring Animals and this DVD. His version here of f.ex. Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood ain't all that weird. He's been playin' this reggea-like version since the mid 80's!
The band is extremly good, but some of the spirit disappeared with Larry Wilkins in the grave, but Dean's doing a great job and so is all of the others, too!
So if you know Eric well, or know how he is nowadays, BUY THIS DVD! But if you're an old, narrow-minded Animals fan who expect it to be just like the old days, forget it. But still it is a great DVD anyway"
The worst DVD concert video ever

"The Animals were one of my favorite bands in the 60's, so I had high expectations when I bought this disk. Boy, was I disappointed! A mediocre band behind a washed-up has-been singer. Burdon at one time had one of the great voices in rock, but sadly it's gone now. The melodies have become monotone, semi-shouted parodies of once-great tunes. If that weren't bad enough, the video is grainy and the sound quality is poor. Don't waste your money on this dog."
Is Eric Bored?

"The video image is okay and the audio is decent, but Eric Burdon's performance is disappointing. Has Eric lost his voice or is he just totally bored with his old hits? I was disappointed in the stylistic changes made to standards like "House of the Rising Sun" "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "San Franciscan Nights". I didn't expect him to exactly duplicate the songs Burdon made famous with the old Animals, but I didn't expect him to take as much liberty as he did either.The one neat thing about the Eric Burdon video is that it is multi-angle on at least two songs. You select the view you want (there are three to choose from.) That's kind of cool."
If you don't go see them live, BUY THIS DVD!!!

"I know all of these guys very well and have seen them live about six times and they just keep getting better and better every time. Eric Burdon gives 200% every time. The recording is very good and gives my subs a great workout. This is one of my only videos that I really say is great!!!!GET IT: YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!"
