I must admit to having let the ball drop on this one. Back in November, rawgod noted that I hadn’t played any instrumentals and asked if I would consider this song, Serenade to a Sweet Lady, for a quiet Sunday. I listened to it for the first time, liked it, and told him that yes, I would like to play it. And then, I promptly forgot. My oversight is doubly embarrassing, since he asked me to consider it his dedication to me! And still I forgot. I am old and losing my memory. Anyway, moving on …
This song by Eric Burdon & The Animals was never released as a single, but only on their album Every One of Us, released in 1968.
Every One of Us was the second of three albums released by the band in the United States in that year (the album was not released in the United Kingdom). The single from the album was White Houses, which charted in the United States and Canada. The album was described by reviewer Bruce Eder of Allmusic as “a good psychedelic blues album, filled with excellent musicianship.”
Thank you, rawgod, for both the suggestion and the dedication. 😊
