Glen Campbell, Jim Seals and Dash Croft joined THE CHAMPS after they had a 1958 #1 hit with Tequila. Bad bad timing.
The HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN cut in 1964 by the Animals has no known author. No one knows where or when it was written. Probably a folk tale about about a New Orleans flophouse or maybe an opium den, the British invasion group growled and guitared it into a hit.
