Eric Burdon

Eric Burdon - Words and Music - 2013

by Dennis Elsas
Eric Burdon

Eric Burdon has always had one of the most distinctive voices in Rock 'n' Roll. As the lead singer of The Animals, he presented a style and sound unlike any of the other British Invasion bands. A young Bruce Springsteen was watching him perform on the Ed Sullivan Show back in 1964, and he told the SXSW audience in last year's keynote address just how influential Eric and The Animals would come to be in shaping his future career.

Prince- “Screwdriver”

Here we have some great, throwback style Prince. He kills it with some strong guitar and hands-off sounding production. Prince is the ultimate alternative pop star and here he cements that position.

Jose James- No Beginning No End

James combines jazz and hip hop in a totally relaxed way. He makes everything sound smooth, so obviously it’s incredibly hard to dislike this new record.
