Whatever its provenance, the song enthralled a generation of artists.
House Of The Rising Sun
Woody Guthrie recorded a version in Josh White tweaked the lyrics in his effort, and Lead Belly made two stabs at the song in the same decade. And then, another generation joined in: the peacenik troubadours, Pete Seeger in , and Joan Baez in Was it a bar, a brothel, a boarding house? There was no definitive answer, but plenty of plausible theories. Bob Dylan included it on his first, eponymous, album in His arrangement was copied from Dave Van Ronk, the singer-songwriter claimed. But the song was free-floating now, impervious to ownership claims. Then the British, like true rebuffed colonialists, got in on the act.
Singer Eric Burdon had heard the song in a Newcastle club, and the group responded with an electric and electrifying arrangement. It was released as a single, despite a then-inordinate length of four minutes 29 seconds. Producer Mickie Most conquered his own initial misgivings. The floating song had travelled a long way. They look like the kind of nice boys who would not have made it past the entrance of the Rising Sun.
Lomax had been right. The tradition of American folk music deserved a higher place in the pantheon of art, and would one day help conquer the world.

Rundown hostel that is infested with cats that relieve themselves in flower boxes that line the building. The smell permeated into the room we stayed in and there is a terrible smell outside the room. During the day the place is infested with flies and in the evening there are mosquitoes. There is an area with some tables that is surrounded with a protective netting.
Not pleasant for eating meals. I might add: flies are endemic to the area, but I think this place this has excessive amounts either due to improper disposal of food or animal excrement. Stay away from this place. Trip type: Traveled as a couple. Jstamn98 wrote a review Mar Ardmore, Pennsylvania 17 contributions 2 helpful votes.

House Of The Rising Sun
The breakfast was gorgeous and the room couldn't have been more clean. The mood is relaxed and we felt a little like in California there. The access is a little complicated cause you have to go through a gate and call Noam for him to Open it.
