Eric Burdon - My Secret Life album
My Secret Life is an album by Eric Burdon released in 2004. It was his first solo album release, which contains new titles, in nearly 16 years. It was his comeback album. It features many different musical directions such as jazz, blues, soul, rock, ska, rhythm and blues, folk, boogie, world and pop. Burdon said in an interview that every song is different. The album peaked No. 93 on the German album chart after it sold 20,000 copies in the UK.
My Secret Life consists of 13 tracks that form a loose song cycle revolving around Eric Burdon's love of American music, specifically R&B, soul, blues, and jazz. While that theme dominates the entire record it is especially true on the eight tunes penned or co-written by Burton. Can't Kill the Boogieman" is a heartfelt tribute dedicated to John Lee Hooker featuring Burdon's cherished memories of the blues legend sung over the tune of Hooker's classic "Boogie Chillen. Burdon's voice is in fine shape, and he effortlessly jumps from soft spoken passages to his trademark blues grit that remains instantly recognizable from his days as vocalist of the Animals in the '60s. What really makes this effort stand out from previous solo albums is the music itself.
My Secret Life is an album by Eric Burdon released in 2004. Musicians on this album includes Red Young, Martin Gerschwitz, Terry Wilson and Jon Cleary

Album by Eric Burdon.
Without a doubt, this is Eric Burdon's best album since Sun Secrets. His voice remains resonant and strong, and his backup musicians are truly talented. My only concern is that the overall tone of the album is melancholy, with many references to death. I certainly hope that doesn't indicate that Eric is depressed, in the way that Del Shannon was just before he committed suicide.
