Eric Burdon Band
Eric Burdon, one of the most distinctive and soulful voices in rock and roll, is an accomplished painter, author, composer, recording artist and a traveling bluesman for over 50 years. His musical journey began in the coal-mining town of Newcastle, England, where he immersed himself in American blues and jazz. Driving force of the Animals, Burdon helped lead the British Invasion with their first international hit, "House of the Rising Sun." Burdon began a solo career in 1971 with the Eric Burdon Band, continuing with a hard rock–heavy metal–funk style.
A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member since 1994 and named one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine, Burdon's long string of hits includes "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and the Vietnam-era anthem, "We Gotta Get Out of This Place."
Alive In America by the Eric Burdon Band was recorded live in Denver, Colorado on October 17th, 1974.
