House of The Rising Sun - Other
The "other versions" don't really fit into the traditional or the rock category, some of them feature ladies but all in all they are just a bit different.
This is a kind of club/dance version. It was a Top 20 Disco hit in 1977.
If you've been here before, you know I am a big fan of John's. And I truly believe that this unique version ranks up there with the best of them. Too cool for school. Awesome.
Naomi Chiaki (ちあき なおみ Chiaki Naomi, born September 17, 1947), is a Japanese singer and actress who worked from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. This was the only foreign language version I found.
Very nice voice and a different arrangement.

Amanda Palmer & Nervous Cabaret
at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY on November 14th, 2009. It's Amanda Palmer, what else can I say. Enjoy.
Deep River Quartet
The Deep River Quartet are a Dutch group, I had never heard of them before but they do a great sould version. I have to wonder if they got the name from the Deep River Boys? Maybe as a tribute?
Jolie O'Dell, Star St. Germain, Bexie Brown, Ben Mulholland, and Ryan Ochs tackle House of the Rising
Sun at their gig at the Gig in June 2007.
I thought I was all done and then somehow this version popped up an it just had to be included.
