Stop is a hard rock / R&B album by the first incarnation of the Eric Burdon Band, whose line up consisted of Burdon, John Sterling, Kim Kesterson and Terry Ryan.
The band was formed in 1971, after Burdon left his previous band War to cut an album with Jimmy Witherspoon. They recorded the 1971 album Guilty and then, without Witherspoon, this album.
Not released until July 1975, it featured no hit single, but did enjoy some American chart success, reaching both US and Canadian album charts.
The distinctive red and white gatefold sleeve, together with the plain white inner-sleeve, are die-cut octagonally in the shape of a traffic stop sign. Inside the gatefold one surface bears a large black and white portrait of Burdon, based on a photograph.
