TRES VERSIONES DE UNA CLÁSICA. Tobacco road.












TOBACCO ROAD.

Tobacco Road, original de John D. Loudermilk, se hizo famosa en la interpretación de The Nashville Teens, después, la grabó Eric Burdon con su grupo The Animals, pero la versión de este mismo cantante con War, grupo con el que grabó Eric Burdon declares War, superó con creces la anterio, y hay otra de The Blues Magoos, que también conozco bien y me gusta, esta versión apareció en Psychedelic Lollipop, aquí les presentó las tres mencionadas, que no son las únicas, hay muchas versiones distintas, incluida una de Jefferson Airplane, aparecida en su disco debut Takes off.
