Alan Price Set - Simon Smith & his amazing dancing bear 1967

This cover of a great Randy Newman song almost cuts the original, don't you think?  Alan Price obviously loves the song, and he really does it to death, with a nice band and arrangement to boot.

Alan was the musical heart of the Animals, you may recall.  This cut is from a solo album (his first?), and there are a few other Randy Newman songs on the album as well.  Alan was a fan, I would say.  Well I'm a fan myself, of the both of them.
