Today 1942 Alan Price was born
A self-taught musician, primarily a keyboard player, he was educated at Jarrow Grammar School, South Tyneside, and was a founding member of the Tyneside group The Alan Price Rhythm and Blues Combo, then renamed The Animals. His playing on their international hit House of the Rising Sun and other tracks was a key element in the Animals' success. His arrangement of House of the Rising Sun, a traditional folk song, has become more recognisable than previous incarnations.
Check also my 2007_December_18 article about Animals member Chass Chandler.
Alan Price left the Animals in May 1965, to form the highly successful Alan Price Set. Starting in 1966, he enjoyed singles success with I Put A Spell On You, the Randy Newman song Simon Smith And His Amazing Dancing Bear, and the original The House That Jack Built, following it up in 1968 with the jazzy Don't Stop The Carnival. His second album, A Price On His Head in 1967 features even seven songs by Randy Newman, at a time when the latter was virtually unknown.
A lot of these songs you will find on my next compilation as well as the great Chuck Jackson hit Any day now.

The usual place...
'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
Pass to extract the file : 080417
The file is a small 50MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that, neither about the sleeve.
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
