As my contribution towards the commemoration of WW1 here is SKY PILOT by ERIC BURDON and THE ANIMALS recorded in 1968. Banned by the BBC for it’s anti-war lyrics it came as Burdon was at his most political. He was politicised by the Animals Trotskyist road manager in the States and his very hard to find – autobiography I USED TO BE AN ANIMAL BUT I’L ALRIGHT NOW is a good read. Burden bought heavily into the San Francisco hippie scene and his SAN FRANCISCAN NIGHTS has some classic lines penned by Burden……..’cop’s face is full of hate..heavens above he’s on a street called love’. Tops.
