I've met Geno Delafose before, and he is really a quiet, sweet young man....who can rock the house down! I bought a couple CD's before I left Texas where they were readily available, but have had trouble finding them in Illinois and Arizona naturally. I should have bought them while I was down there...dang.

More on the legend of the House of the Rising Sun, and I think this one is the most accepted locally right now. The following is from New Orleans trivia columnist Blake Ponchartrain, of a local publication called the Gambit:

Quote:

  Today, the three-story white building on St. Louis Street is owned by attorney Darlene Jacobs Levy and houses her Home Finders International real estate company. She inherited the building when her husband died in the late 1980s, and she began renovating the front apartment of the derelict building as a place for her father to live. Workmen at the site discovered risque postcards of half-dressed women from the 1800s behind a wall and uncovered fancy fluted columns and a ceiling mural of a golden rising sun surrounded by three cherubs. Levy says the house was a bordello operated by a succession of different madams for many years before her husband bought the building.

Just six houses down from where F. was born, in the French Quarter. But not the same house, or the same circumstance.

I was looking at music and found this and thought this was pretty cool. May not be LA but it's still pretty darn special. Perfect blend of soprano, tenor and alto. And from 3 sisters.



And this one is pure LA.

The version of "House of the Rising Sun" by the Animals has been a long-time favorite song of mine. I heard it as a kid, before I even knew any English. Actually, I might have heard the French translation first, as recorded by Johnny Hallyday as "Le pénitencier" (The penitentiary prisoner), which was definitely taken after this version by the Animals as the beat and the music score were identical.

I like this song enough to have posted it more than once, and as sung by different artists, and also made a note of the song's earlier origin. Just now, I searched the forum and found MickeyD also noted this song's origin in an even earlier post.

On youtube, one can find slightly different versions recorded earlier than the Animals' version, made by Nina Simone and Bob Dylan. And by the way, the lead singer of the Animals is Eric Burdon.

I love the Peasall sisters.

We seem to have drifted out of Louisiana, but on the subject of sister groups, how about the Quebe Sisters? Fiddlers, they are.


This thread has reminded me of quite a few years ago when I was invited to a Louise Mandrell concert that was entertainment for a "convention" that I was not exactly attending. Went anyway. The full stage was setup with all the instruments -- maybe a dozen or so different instruments. Ms. Mandrell appeared and opened the show herself, alone, explaining that this organization's budget would not cover the full band, and was called a "fly date" in which the lead flew in to the host city and performed alone, but also that every instrument on the stage would be used in the show. For the next two hours she proceeded to work her way around the stage and play every single instrument there. I guess I was at least a little impressed. A real musician.

Aw, what the heck. How about another post of "House of the Rising Sun"?

A band I grew up listening to was the Ventures. And of course, they also played "The House".
