BNew album from the veteran Scottish Pop band led by Duglas T. Stewart. This album includes the return of two of BMX Bandits’ original members, neither of whom have worked with the group since its beginnings, sometime around 1985. Jim McCulloch (Snowgoose, The Soup Dragons) is not only back in the line-up but also participated intensely in the songwriting process for many of the tracks, and Sean Dickson (The Soup Dragons) wrote the album’s opening and closing tracks. Another regular collaborator who has returned to the fold is the ubiquitous Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), who plays several instruments and co-produces the captivating ‘Still’.

erEric Burdon was one of the British Invasion’s most distinctive vocalists, with a searingly powerful blues-rock voice. When the first lineup of the group fell apart in 1966, Burdon kept the Animals’ name going with various players for a few years. Usually billed as Eric Burdon & the Animals, the group was essentially Burdon’s vehicle, which he used to purvey a far more psychedelic and less R&B-oriented vision.
