The version by The Animals is apparently credited everywhere to Fats Domino/Dave Bartholomew.


The problem is, it's not the Fats Domino song.


Does anyone know the songwriter of the song done by The Animals and/or any other performer earlier than The Animals?

Ahlert and Turk were professional songwriters who sold their songs to whoever wanted them. They are definitely credited on the 78 - scan included with release. The Ben Bernie version has been added and set as first recording. The table still displays Ruth Etting as first. I don't know how the Ruth Etting version was determined to be first release, so it's been left as that, though I find that doubtful.
