The Animals – Don't Bring Me Down (1966, Vinyl) - Discogs

100 Great Songs From The British Invasion: 1963-1966: Don’t Bring Me Down- The Animals. Don’t Bring Me Down- was another of the Brill Building hits for The Animals. Their producer Mickie Most made a call for some songs and got three at once- all turning out to be big hits- ‘We Gotta Get Out Of This Place’, ‘It’s My Life’ and ‘Don’t Bring Me Down.’ The Animals had mixed emotions about this material- while they were getting hit material -they preferred the more R&B numbers that would fill out the albums. By the time they recorded “Don’t Bring Me Down’ they had a new producer- Tom Wilson- of Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel fame. This was their first release with a new drummer- Barry Jenkins who had replaced founding member John Steel.
