HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN (The Charlie Santos Group)

Track 7 of the album The British Invaders produced by me and Daniel Maia.
"The House of the Rising Sun" is a 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. The most successful commercial version was recorded by the English rock group The Animals in 1964, which was a number one hit in the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland and Canada.

I`M ALIVE (The Hollies)

From Wikipedia:
I'm Alive" is a 1965 number-one UK hit single by The Hollies. It was written especially for them by the successful US pop songwriter Clint Ballard, Jr. who also had chart-topping hits with Linda Ronstadt, Wayne Fontana and Jimmy Jones. However they originally passed the song over to another Manchester band, the Toggery Five, before changing their mind and recording the song, which became their first No 1 hit in the UK. This song appears on the US version of the 1965 Hollies album, Hear! Here!.
