Classic Rock Bottom


It's simple this time.
There are many songs we know very well, maybe were Big Hits.
And some were Originally done by other solo artists or groups.
In a lot of these cases, that is a big surprise, unknown to us.
In other cases, we know or have heard about these Originals.
That's it, I'll be playing them...simple as that.
One great memory, there is a version of a Folk Ballad in here with such great acoustic guitar that Engineer Ken Stanley and I flipped over it.
It just arrived at the station one day, unexpected and a real find.

You totally forgot the GP?

Am I here all alone, lol?

Ok, Josh Rouse would have been my pick too, I even thought you might want it.

Totally forgot the GP...Let's give it to...Josh Rouse (although I preferred The Animals, I've heard it, so it's not eligible for the GP).

Wow, that's a surprise, going with The Olympics- I'll stay with the Young Rascals.
After that, I agree Sam Cooke wins easily.
With the House Of The Rising Sun, when we were kids I had a good friend who loved that Animals version and I hated it.
Over the years I have come to finally like it, and I guess it is the best
I remember Dylan's being a surprise many year later when I got his first album.
But the guitar work on Josh Rouse's version still blows me away 
Nobody seems to know who did the the original, some think it was an English or Irish folk song with lyrics adapted to fit New Orleans.
I think the 1st version put on record dates back to the 1930's. Golden Pell, LOL?!
Thanks as always for listening and writing,

Let's see:

Good Lovin' - I'll go with The Olympics.  I like the slower version.

Twisting The Night Away - Easily, Sam Cooke. Don't like Stewart's version.

The House Of The Rising Sun - Top to bottom, The Animals version is the best (the vocal just puts it over the top).  But I enjoyed both of the other versions as well.  I too like the guitar work on Josh Rouse's version. So none of these are the original?

Hahahahaha...sounds riveting.

And there I was thinking you'd be writing about Rosie The Riveter!

I am currently writing a book about someone who cans peaches and the trials and tribulations about peaches & canning. "Write what you know", they say!

Why not?
You're always writing, and with a good imagination.
