What's your favorite rendition of "Fox On the Run?" So far, I'm enjoying the ones by The Country Gentlemen and the Blue Grass Alliance.

The Good Brothers 1973 version was the first bluegrass style version I heard. It's still my favourite.
Fox On The Run - Good Brothers

The first time I ever heard it was the original by Manfred Mann.
Fox On The Run - Manfred Mann

This is my favorite, most likely because it was the version I heard first, at a small club, long ago and far away. Seldom Scene - Fox On The Run

Was the Manfred Mann recording really the original?

Nevermind. I should have searched Mudcat first. Question answered, and the answer appears to be yes.

My favorite version? That would be the parody, Boxers and Socks by Peter and Kristina Cady.

Here's a recording of the song by The Country Gentlemen:

And here's the original version, by (believe it or not) Manfred Mann:

I was unaware of the Manfred Mann version - it's excellent, but is it really the original?

There is, of course, a completely different song with the same title, which is pretty good too.

Yes, it is the original. It was written by Tony Hazzard who wrote a few tunes for Manfred Mann and some other British pop groups like Lulu, The Yardbirds and Herman's Hermits.

Since you cannot copyright a title, it sometimes happens that they get used over again. The title of the old chestnut "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" was re-used by Van Morrison and that song got Rod Stewart a Grammy.

Todd Snider's "Beer Run" was re-used by Garth Brooks, as was the line, "B, double E, double R, U, N." A little too close to be coincidence. Todd often introduces the song by saying, "I wrote this song and then a few years later some other guys wrote it again."
