AllMusic Review by

This is a collection of odds and ends from Eric Burdon, including early versions of songs that later turned up on the Animals' 1983 reunion album, Ark ("The Night," "Love Is for All Time"), interesting covers (a 14-minute live workout on "Tobacco Road," a cover of "Sixteen Tons" from the soundtrack to the 1990 film Joe Versus the Volcano), and some previously unreleased Burdon songs ("Tango," "No More War," "Young Girls," "For Your Love"). This is Burdon as a mainstream rock artist of the late '70 to early '90s, fronting a hard rock band with his always powerful baritone. The collection is predictably uneven, but it has its pleasures, particularly "Sixteen Tons," an excellent choice for Burdon's voice.
