 Re: Location of Recording...I was there.

The Animals were staying at the Emerald Beach Hotel on what is called Cable Beach in Nassau. The band practiced and recorded in the convention hall of the hotel. I was 11 years old and the father of one of my mates was general manager of the hotel. Of no interest ,we sometimes used the same space for our childhood garage band practice. Pretty cool.

I remember they were great guys and allowed us to hang around during their whole stay. Yes they were big drinkers and the beer bottles tended to pile up during the course of the day. Oh to be eleven again.

  the alleged story that this was recorded in a hotel room in the Bahamas

Not quite a hotel room - both were recorded at "Serena Studio" in Nassau ca. 13.04.66 together with other tracks which turned up on the US-only ANIMALISM album.

 The final single to be released in the bands first lifetime was another stunner. A moody ballad with bags of atmosphere. A rarity too in that there exists a great stereo mix of this - and the B side which clearly sounds like they were recorded at the same session - which makes me dubious about the alleged story that this was recorded in a hotel room in the Bahamas. Tom Wilson has been credited with producing this disc.

Sadly, shortly after, the band imploded thanks to a large split in the band whereby Eric Burdon, Hilton Valentine and new drummer Barry Jenkins went overboard on LSD whilst Chas Chandler and Dave Rowberry were strictly beer men. The departure of original drummer John Steele a few months earlier had completely altered the band dynamic to the degree they simply couldn't work together any more. Not to mention discovering that manager Mike Jeffrey had conned them out of their earnings.
