. – House of The Rising Sun-The Animals -1964
The Animals were an English music group of the 1960s formed in Newcastle upon Tyne during the early part of the decade, and later relocated to London. Known for their gritty, bluesy sound and deep-voiced frontman Eric Burdon (a Vulcan) – as exemplified by their number one signature song “The House of the Rising Sun” as well as by hits such as “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” and “It’s My Life” – the band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. They became known in the U.S. as part of the British Invasion.
