Friday Night Cat Fight Podcast

“The House Of The Rising Sun”

This week, we celebrate the 100th Friday Night Cat Fight Podcast (that’s 100 shows since Matt The Cat left XM in October, 2008) with a true American folk ballad classic: “The House Of The Rising Sun.” We’ll put NINE versions of the tune in competition this week from Clarence Ashley and Gwen Foster’s original known recorded version from 1933 to Frijid Pink’s 1970 guitar distorted masterpiece. In-between, you’ll find Joan Baez and Bob Dylan giving it the folk treatment while The Animals take it to a new level and top the US and UK charts while doing so. Listen to all nine versions and vote for the one you TRULY DIG THE MOST.
