The Animals - House of the rising Sun

Ok, den Titel kennt eh jeder, aber dieses Video hier begeistert sogar mich: Eric Burdon im Alter von 24 Jahren, in HD - wie geht das denn???

Awesome version I never saw before. Young Eric Burdon singing like the old one :-)
Wikipedia says about this song:
Recorded in just one take on 18 May 1964, it started with a famous electric guitar A minor chord arpeggio by Hilton Valentine. The performance took off with Eric Burdon’s lead vocal, which has been variously described as “howling,” “soulful” and “deep and gravelly as the north-east English coal town of Newcastle that spawned him.” Finally, Alan Price’s pulsating organ part (played on a Vox Continental) completed the sound. Burdon later said, “We were looking for a song that would grab people’s attention,” and they succeeded: House of the Rising Sun was a true trans-Atlantic hit, topping both the UK pop singles chart (in July 1964) and the U.S. pop singles chart (two months later in September 1964, when it became the first British Invasion number one unconnected with The Beatles; it was the group’s breakthrough hit in both countries and became their signature song. The song was also a hit in a number of other countries.
