The Animals: Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

I was in an expensive shoe shop cum coffee shop in Leicester yesterday - well, it was Clarendon Park - when they played this. It sounded good,

Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood was originally recorded, at a much slower tempo, by Nina Simone. Many later covers have been inspired by The Animals' take on it.

This cracking live performance comes from the 1965 New Musical Express poll winners concert. The whole show is on Youtube.

The New Musical Express sponsored that event in the 1960s. Sponsorship here and sponsorship there.

New Musical Express is bust in 2016, so no sponsorship from NME.

New lads and lasses proclaim that they don't believe in the old model which sold bands (spplt) and they have a new model. Perhaps both models are wrong.
