House Of The Rising Sun, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood (7").
When "House of the Rising Sun" was recorded, using what was essentially a group arrangement, the management persuaded the band to put one person's name down as arranger. The original Animals reunited in 1976 for a superb album called Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted, which picked up right where Animalisms had left off a decade earlier and which was well-received critically but failed to capture the public's attention. In 1983, a somewhat longer-lasting reunion came about between the original members, augmented with the presence of Zoot Money on keyboards.
Os Animals alcançaram sucesso com seus compactos "Baby Let Me Follow You Down" e "The House of the Rising Sun". Os vocais uivados de Burdon e os arranjos dramáticos de Price criaram indubitavelmente o primeiro hit do folk rock. Os sucessos se seguiriam com "Bring It On Home To Me" (hit na voz de Sam Cooke) e "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" (de Nina Simone). Em 1965, entretanto, o grupo estava prestes a se separar. O grupo tentou retomar a carreira em 1976, gravando um novo álbum que apesar de receber alguns elogios, não teve grande repercussão. Nova tentativa foi feita em 1983 (com Ark) e uma série de apresentações que renderam um disco ao vivo, mas que não conseguiram alavancar a nova tentativa da banda. Burdon voltou a carreira solo e os "Animals" são lembrados como um dos expoentes do rhythm and blues britânico dos anos 60.
