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."
At the time of the release of the album in August 1968, both Danny McCulloch and Vic Briggs had been fired from the band earlier that summer, and Eric Burdon was seeking replacement musicians. Unlike the previous two albums, involving shared songwriting credits with band members, Every One of Us is primarily compositions solely credited to Eric Burdon.
