This video is very special to Bailey Quinn. Thanks to her brother, Curtis, "House of the Rising Sun" was the very first song Bailey learned to play on her guitar. During some hard times just being able to play the song and remember his love kept her going. In this video Bailey gets to sing the song with her old friend Alex "Papa Mojo" Wolfson, who was at her very first professional gig so many years ago. Here Bailey reunites with Papa Mojo after thirty years. Bailey's comment on the video ... "My brother taught me this song and tonight I got to sing it with my second brother. Happy me good now."
The video is recorded during the Creek Snakes performance at the Shipp Inn Resturant and Brewery, Milford, New Jersey on Bailey's birthday, March 24th (2012). The battery died in mid record so there is a minute missing out of the middle and a moving harp solo by Alex was lost :o(
"The House of the Rising Sun" is a traditional folk song from the United States. Also called "House of the Rising Sun" or occasionally "Rising Sun Blues", it tells of a life gone wrong in New Orleans. No one knows who wrote, but it's been around since 1934. Everyone considers the most successful version (and original) as being The Animals cut in 1964. Alan Price of The Animals has even claimed that the song was originally a sixteenth-century English folk song about a Soho brothel. This song IS one of the most covered songs ever. Bailey and The Creek Snakes do it justice.
