Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the July 15th showdown.

Battle of the Bands #BOTB results, TOBACCO ROAD

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. (Please note: Effective July 2017, some of us switched to once a month on the 15th. Others may opt to continue with twice a month.) Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.

Firstly, apologies to everyone for (once again) not responding to comments on the original post. Time seems to get away from me in the summer. Hope you’re all having a good one!

Stephen sure came up with a good matchup for this battle! It was back and forth all along and at last count, WAR was ahead by one vote. WHEW! Decisions, decisions…..In the end, I had to go with my heart and choose the younger, bluesier Eric. He’s been one of my musical heroes for over 50 years!

Here’s how it went down:

ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS
Cathy, Debbie, Janie, John, Mary, Michele
Total: 6
~~~~~~~~
ERIC BURDON & WAR
Arlee, Cherdo, Chris, Corinne, Janet, Stephen
Total: 6

And the winner is:
ERIC BURDON!
😉
Well, of course, he can’t lose, but

Better than the usual blowout. Thanks again, Stephen!

  1. Debbie,

    Holy smoke – a tie! I enjoyed the bonus Eric Burdon song track. It sounds familiar but I think it was another artist. I guess I’ll ask Google who covered it to clear this mystery up. Thanks for sharing the results and for the visit today! Have a good week, my friend!

    1. Hey Debbie, I’m back! 😉 It’s Joe Cocker’s version I know. I was surprised to see this song covered by 20+ artists over the years. Now, you gotta another battle with this one, right? 😀

  2. Wow, what a great rebound with this one Debbie! It doesn’t get better than a Tie! I love how both the Animals and War came out equal. That was a really cool battle. I couldn’t predict which incarnation of Burdon would prevail…and both did. Love it!
    Fabulous battle! Congrats.
    I really like Eric Burdon. My favs are House of the Rising Sun, Spill the Wine, We Gotta Get Out of This Place, Mama Told Me Not to Come and Don’t Bring Me Down. All these really take me back…
    Good stuff!!
    Thanks for posting the EB playlist too.
    Hope you’re having a good weekend. Talk soon

  3. Well, what about that! Guess it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that two good bands with the same front man would be tough competition for each other. Of course, War was better, but that’s me (and a few others).

    1. Thanks, Mary. The credit goes to Stephen. 🙂 I’m liking this idea of using the same artist with different recordings and will search for more possibilities.
