Frijid Pink - The House Of The Rising Sun

Better than Eric Burdon's version? There is hardly a rational argument in support of either version being the better. The Animals, recorded their version in June of 1964. The popularity of Heavy Metal was yet to be fully realized. At the time Eric Burdon was very much into the American rhythm and blues scene. His rendition of 'The House Of The Risin' sun' would have reflected that.
Frijid Pink's version was recorded some six years later in 1970 when Heavy Metal was in full hyper-mode. They would have been influenced by the likes of Black Sabbath, The Who, Led Zeppelin etc. who were setting the pace for the future of Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal incidentally is characterized by it's thick, massive chunky sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion produced by an electric guitar's natural harmonics in overdrive. Extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness would place it squarely in the realm of what's considered Heavy Metal. Throw in a heavy dose of aggression and machismo and there you have it.
I like both versions. The smoothness of Eric Burdon's vocals as opposed to Tom Beaudry's (AKA Kelly Green) more gritty tone has made a somewhat obscure blues song into the power hit that is loved by affectionados of both Metal and Blues. This song rocks no matter the vocalist. Peace....!
