Eric Burdon & The Greenhornes – S/T (Readymade Records)

eric burdon greenhornesAIt is somewhat only fitting that Ohio’s The Greenhornes would team up with Eric Burdon of the Animals to make some wonderful music together. The Greenhornes have never been shy about the influence that the blues has had upon their band while at 71 years old, Burdon sounds every bit as vital as he ever did, belting out each of the tracks here with passion and conviction. The two factions compliment one another so well that the only complaint I have about this collection is the fact that it is only four songs deep.
