Chasing the Rising Sun ~ Ted Anthony

chasing_rising_sun.gifRaise your hand if you thought that The Animals were the only ones to record “House of the Rising Sun”?

Even if you knew better, you just might be surprised to find out how rich the history of this song truly is. Anthony traces its origin as far back as he can, managing to sweep the reader up in his obsession during the course of his journey.

Typically I’m not a non-fiction reader, but I found Chasing the Rising Sun to be completely absorbing. If you enjoy music, if you’re curious about the route a song takes to popularity, check this book out. It’s well worth the ride.
