Notes by the trader
We are extremely pleased to present a super rare and previously uncirculated SB recording of Eric Burdon & The Animals from Bologna, Italy in 1967.

On June 16th, 1967 Eric Burdon & The Animals played at the legendary Monterey Pop Festival, portins of that performance is documented on audio and video.

Very little is known about the short 3 date Italian mini-tour they embarked on the week prior to Monterey. What we know is that the band landed in Milan on June 9th. They performed on June 10th in Milan, playing in the open air at the Velodromo Vigorelli. This particular show was far from a success, battling inclement weather some reports put the attendance at less than 300 people. A few photos from performance do survive and appear to support low attendance.

We also know that immediately following Milan the band played Bologna and Florence. What we don't know is the exact date of the Bologna show.

The recording comes our way from my old friend MR and was given to him by a member of one of the opening bands. It is unknown who prompted the recording, if it was the band, the promoter or one of the opening bands. Regardless there are very few live recordings from this era and it's a special treat to hear this one 52 years later.

The raw capture off the soundboard is somewhat of a rough mix, the vocals are up front and higher in the mix than the instrumentation but not to a fault. It also ran 40 cents
fast and has been adjusted. Samples provided.

The tape opens with two songs from 'The Animals', it is assumed these are from either an earlier show or possibly the Milano show as we believe Florence took place after Bologna. We then get treated to two songs by one of the opening bands 'I Condors'. Next up is The Animals main event, it is unknown if this is the complete show. There were a couple of additional audience recorded songs after the SB portion but they did not sync up with this show as 'Tobacco Road' followed what was only the end of 'All Night Long' which was clearly not the version found on the former SB portion. We have not included these as they are very poor quality and they suffered from CD rot that I tried but was unsuccessful in removing. It's not often tapes from a legendary band and historic time in their existence surfaces and we thank MR for allowing us all access to them.
