Eric Burden & the Animals – When I Was Young (MGM Records)

“When I Was Young” / “A Girl Named Sandoz” (MGM K13721) March 1967

Record reviews from the British music press:

Mixture of the strident and the gentle, and I’d say it must be a sizeable hit. Eric sings very well indeed – talking about the days when he was a kid. Reminiscences and rather touching. Hearty strident beat, but there are a stack of original ideas, too. It really powers along.
Flip: Much more bluesily urgent. Good contrast; good sound. (Record Mirror, 20/05/67)
