The Animals: Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.

Eric Burdon said, "It was never considered pop material, but it somehow got passed on to us and we fell in love with it immediately." The Animals speeded up the tempo starting off with an awesome electric guitar-and-organ doubled riff from Hilton Valentine and Alan Price, that was picked out and expanded from an element that originally appeared in the Simone recording's.

Dawn , I love this song. The band was never the same after Alan Price left, you can really hear him on this video.
Off subject a bit you might want to post the complete 1967 Who on the Smothers Brothers Show, it.s finally up at you tube, you have to see it to believe it. Classic
