Purple Foxx Origin or title of House of the Rising Sun? (184* d) RE: Origin or title of House of the Rising Sun? 27 Mar 06

Two other reasons to be grateful to the Animals WLD,In Britain this was the first song to go to number 1 in the charts in spite of an airplay ban on singles of more than 3 minutes duration.
The ban was lifted as a consequence which was a good day for music.
Secondly,as an electric reading of what was, in effect ,a folk song this was arguably the first example of folk rock.
Incidentally I neglected to mention in my previous post that the pub in Wallsend was well known to the Animals & this fact influenced their decision to record it.
