Within the past three years a fantastic treasure has been discovered in the dark yet beautiful French Quarter district of New Orleans.

This treasure is not that of gold . . . instead it is one of incredible cultural value. When the song "House of the Rising Sun" was originally written this famous brothel was believed to be only a mythical one.

Until one day just a couple of years ago an electrical contractor was running new wiring through the walls of an old boarding house on St. Louis St.

The "House of The Rising Sun is one of our newest limited edition releases. You do remember the song don′t you? Anyone who has ever tried to play guitar would have learned to play this piece of music. Well, when Eric Burdon of the Animals wrote this song he borrowed some of the lyrics from an old 18th century folk song. At the time that Eric′s song was released back in the 1960s no one really knew if the "House of The Rising Sun" was an actual Orlean′s brothel or if it was simply a myth.

Well, guess what? About three years ago a prominent lawyer in New Orleans was renovating an old boarding house that was left to her by her late husband. As they were running new wires through the old walls a contractor shone his flashlight into a small hole that he had made in the wall and noticed a large white fluted pillar that had been cocooned beneath the drywall. Shining his light upwards he could make out what seemed to be the glimmer of gold reflecting back to him. As they tore down more and more old walls and ceilings, artwork began to appear and it was soon very apparent what this house had once been used for.

This was the world′s most famous brothel hidden right in the middle of the Old French Quarter of New Orleans... the actual one that was legendary for its slaves, voodoo and sin.

House of the rising sun - Friends

Eric Burdon was soon invited to view the house that he had sung about so many years before and Ron was invited to visit the house because of the painting he was about to do.

Knowing that the house would never be opened to the public, Ron has been offered the privilege of showing the world things that they would otherwise never be allowed to see. In his painting Ron has portrayed the back and the front of this famous house. But the story is just beginning . . .

"The Real Voodoo Curse" is a free short story written by SUCHIU about his bizarre experience with the House of the Rising Sun ... believe it or not... it's a true story!
