Three Dog Night - Mama told me not to come 1970

Three Dog Night released a longer, rock 'n roll and funk-inspired version on It Ain't Easy. This version had the same 3/4 by 2/4 time change as Eric Burdon's version and featured Cory Wells singing lead in an almost humorous vocal style, Jimmy Greenspoon playing a Wurlitzer electric piano, and Michael Allsup playing guitar.
