The Animals / “The Mickie Most Years and More” / five CD box set


Fifty years after the first release from The Animals comes The Mickie Most Years And More – a new five CD box set.

The box offers, for the first time on CD, the group’s first four American albums The Animals, The Animals on Tour, Animal Tracks and Animalization in their original mono versions. The fifth CD features the band’s first ever release – the I Just Wanna Make Love To You EP.

Each album has been newly remastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering from the original tapes, and all four albums feature a selection of bonus tracks, such as single versions, radio spots and alternate takes.

Rolling Stone’s David Fricke provides liner notes for each album and this box set also comes with an Animals T-shirt (100% cotton; size extra large) which is exclusive to this set.

The Mickie Most Years And More is released on 25 November 2013.
