I was a freshman in high school, absolutely loved "House". I couldn't believe it when I saw the band was white. Looking back, just ignorant on my part but yeah, they clearly were black. Roll Eyes

Offhand, I can’t think of a song from my childhood that had a bigger influence on the path I followed musically for the rest of my life than “House of the Rising Sun.”

Brits taking American Blues, that we weren’t exposed to, recording it, and sending it back to us.

I played for about 4 years as a teenager in a couple of pretty good bands. Most weeks we’d play weekends at bars and sometimes 7 nights in a row. I absolutely hated ‘House’ then and I hate it now. I will shut it off when it comes on. I don’t know why. I like most of The Animals stuff but that one is up with ‘Louie, Louie’ in detest.

Thanks for “The House of the Rising Sun”.

Reminds me, somehow, of “Hotel California”.

Everytime I hear “The House” I think of the end of Casino. Did not know they were Brit.

The House was one of my favorite tunes when I was growing up, and still is to this day. I spent a fair amount of time in New Orleans, so it just sort of fit in.

I saw Eric Burdon and the New Animals several times. The band was pretty good, but Eric dearly loved his Jagermeister. You have to wonder how come they play the casino circuit in their 70s.
Some of the older performers like Smokey Robinson have not lost a step.

I grew up with that song being played Ad Nauseum on the radio. It stopped being a good song after the first 1000 plays. The 60s had some real good stuff, but that song, and that band, for me, wasn't/isn't one of my top 100.

The Animals' version of House was a favorite when I was early teens; I had the 45. Everyone I knew who played guitar, myself included, had to learn it. Fortunately, the chords weren't difficult to figure out, and it sounded pretty cool to pick those arpeggios.

This song showed me I have no musical talent. I wanted to play guitar but couldn’t. Maybe the first time I realized I couldn’t do anything I wanted to do in life. Good lesson.
Eric seems like a free spirit. Easy to adapt. Hence, his voyages into WAR and his rocking versions of his songs morph into whatever mood he’s in. Good for him,
If you want to hear an excellent version of his songs, a little more rocking than you remember, and an example of his Johnny Cash interpretation, get or listen on YT the album ‘Sun Secrets’. It is a killer album, the guitar players are great.
It is an all time favorite of mine.

^^^^ Awesome!

I started hearing the original in 7th or 8th grade (67-68) and was one of the first songs to learn on the drums.

I can't hear "House of the rising sun" without hearing the Bob Rivers version of "Little Town of Bethlehem" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cbk8f7f5OI

I'll confess to loving Frijid Pink's take back in the day. Now for something completely different --

House of the Rising Sun is a great Song. It’s an old folk song that has been through several versions according to what I read. It’s been told from the point of view of both female (prostitution) and male ( gambling). Dylan changed some wording and added the distinct cord progression in his 1961 recording. He altered the words to make the subject a woman iirc.

The Animals, in their 1964 recording used the Dylan cord progression and used an arpeggio style which gave it its memorable sound. They sang it from the gambler’s point of view.

Some guitar players that started playing in the 60s joke that it was the first song they learned.
