Raw In Holland '13
by Eric Burdon
Released: Jan 2014
Label: Abkco Music & Records, Inc.
On the heels of 'Til Your River Runs Dry, the classic rocker's best album in some time, Burdon returns with Raw in Holland '13. This live set certainly is raw. On more than a few occasions his iconic howl jumps the rails. Of course, if you're a longtime fan, then you know well that hitting every note just right has always been secondary for Burdon, who prefers unrefined passion more than anything else. In terms of set list, what we're treated to is a career overview: The Animals ("House of the Rising Son"), Eric Burdon & WAR ("Spill the Wine") and newer solo material ("Bo Diddley Special").
