About this deal

Newman's version runs 2:12, which is about the same length as the original Animals recording. The Three Dog Night Rendition stretches out to 2:58, with longer instrumental passages and an extended outro. At this point, Randy Newman had yet to release any solo material. When he started recording his own material (starting with his 1968 debut album) many of the songs had already been recorded by others. "Mama Told Me Not to Come" was included on his second album, 12 Songs, which came out around the same time Three Dog Night issued it. Newman had little chart success as an artist in these early years, but Three Dog Night did, and their raucous rendition was the one listeners preferred. Newman at first dismissed them as a "teeny-bopper" band, but later rescinded that statement, saying he liked their version a great deal. Dave from Cardiff, WalesTom Jones and the Stereophonics' remake was not different, it was a carbon copy of the original, from the intro right up to the end. Kelly Jones and Tom Jones voices simply aren't suited to this type of song.

Ekristheh from Halath, United StatesI never saw it as an anti-drug lyric and I don't believe it was meant that way. I interpret it as being about the bad karma / paranoia that can arise from attending the wrong parties with the wrong people while on the wrong substances.Use italics (lyric) and bold (lyric) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part Eric Burdon & The Animals released the first version of this song, including it on their 1967 album Eric Is Here.
