My God, someone else who thinks this version of the old classic is superb. I didn't think the Animals version could ever be touched, but the Geordie track damn near comes close! Incredible stuff!

I think that this version is more "touching" than Animals classic version! I love gospel songs (classics like How Great Thou Art, American Trilogy, Why Me Lord etc) and this church arangement is absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Really GREAT VERSION!!!
