  1. I agree, but it is interesting to hear. I’ve always wondered if the singers on these old recordings really sounded that bad or if that was the actual style.

  2. You’re both wrong.

    Ooops! I meant to say taste is subjective or somesuch thing.

    Though I do wonder what people would say 100 or 200 years from now if asked to chose their fave between this and the Animals’ version. (Don’t get me wrong, I like the Animals’ version just fine. But are our great-great grandkids going to find the sorta yodel-y bits off putting, or are they gonna find Eric Burdon’s barking growl too weird and non-musical?)
