Eric Burdon was – and I’m sure he still is – a wonderful vocalist. However, despite some fine recordings, The Animals were just not in the same league as the Small Faces. They weren’t as cool, the songs were not quite as catchy and I’ll take Ian MacLagan’s organ over Alan Price’s.

Marriott was a huge influence on a teenage Robert Plant.

maybe a diff between sides of the pond. the small faces barely registered in the US...the animals had a ton of songs that are still staples here today.

Yes, the Small Faces barely registered in the U.S. (I think Itchycoo Park may have been the sole-hit, stateside) but 40+ years on, that should be irrelevant. Whether a group cracks the states or not, shouldn't have any bearing on their subsequent influence or appeal. America isn't the be all and end all by any means.

The Small Faces are a bit of the British cult, probably and especially in London. They were the mod-act of the mid-to-late 60's and utterly the coolest swingers in town. The Animals, being Geordies, could never match that.

you seem to be arguing both sides of it. the animals' influence (and therefore eric's) is far greater. i thought that was the point you were arguing with your initial post....

There was a group of us and we were blasted out of our minds a loooong time ago at the Hollywood Bowl and totally enjoying Humble Pie as it opened for Emerson, Lake and Palmer. When the headliner came on we found the music to be much too cerebral for our mood. We were roaring for more "30 Days In the Hole." We were oblivious to anyone wanting to hear ELP. We had a great time that night, but thinking about it later we were no doubt very rude. To our credit, we were at the very back (top) of the Bowl. At least we were at the back of the bus. I remember enjoying that set as much anything I ever heard. A good night if you weren't sitting around us and wanted to hear ELP.

Joe Cocker was a pretty supreme 60s British vocalist. No love for Joe?

Great band with some great songs, as were Family - shame we don't get bands like those these days. One hit now and they are playing @#$%& stadiums, they don't learn their trade on the road like the old bands did.

Not to push this OT thread even more off topic - but, yes Family were also a great band IMO, a very interesting blend of adventurous "prog" elements and Rock sensibilities. In other words, they were constantly changing without losing feel. It's quite unsusual that musicians so gifted and versatile can still "play it rough". Love their "Fearless" album!

Hmm... Perhaps! I thought your point regarding the Animals selling more records in the U.S. and still getting radio airplay was your way of arguing which group was better and the more influential.

I really don't think the Animals had more of an influence here in Britain.

He may not have gained any significant success until 'With A Little Help from My Friends', but he did have a bash a little earlier on.

Incidentally, like the song that made him a star, this recording also features Jimmy Page.

I'll Cry Instead - his debut single.

Saw them twice in 1973, Roanoke, VA, and Greensboro, NC. Both very rockin' shows, and I'm happy I got the chances to see them.

Hi there,
Back in januari 86 I attended a show with Steve at the Marquee in London,
and about a half year later I saw him at The Hard Rock Cafe´ in Stockholm.
He noticed me and my girlfriend in the audience and waved to us.
I don´t know what we did in London to make him him remember us.
Maybee the drink with Lemmy after the show!
For me myyself Humble Pie was one of the best British bands ever
tons of great songs and fantastic musicians!
Tommy

Love a big piece of the PIE whenever possible. A fantastically underrated band, and a joy to listen to. I have all their albums and love them. Eat It is a fantastic disc! Full on whiteboy soul and some great live stuff on it as well. Roadrunner is fantastic. I wish I could have seen them. A shame that Marriot died in such a wasteful accident.
