I've just acquired The Kinks' 'Village Green Preservation Society' 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. Three CDs for a tenner. Not too bad, value wise. There's a Stereo and Mono CD (both with extras, such as 'Days' - IMHO the best song Ray Davies ever wrote) and a CD of 'rarities'. I never owned this album back in the day, although I once borrowed a copy from a friend, as you did in the last century. Such a great collection of songs. I haven't got round to the rarities CD yet, so that may or may not be the icing on the cake, who knows? Anyway, I've got it in the car CD player and I suspect it's going to be there for a while.

How this man has kept his voice, I do not know...but he has.


He's a tough old Byrd.  Grin


Many thanks for the link.  That’s a very nice version to have.

Listening to it from my phone Smiley I love David Crosby!


So do all right thinking people (apart from maybe Graham, Stephen and Neil)  Grin

Enormously enjoyed the Spotify stream British Folk Is Soo Cool this week on a dull commute very cleverly curated with old and new - recommended.

I bought this recently. My first Kinks album!

It certainly has its charms but as yet, I've not entirely made my mind up about it.

Black Crowes on the Howard Stern show (On YT)

Jealous Again and She Talks to Angels, Howard asked about the guitar on 'Angels  and Chris talked about them discovering open turnings, from 'Folk tradition and Nick Drake'.
Very nice I thought..."Open E"

Great keyboard player and drummer......how long will it last!?

Cosmic Partners: The McCabes Tapes - archive release of a 1973 show by Michael Nesmith & Red Rhodes. Great sounding recording of a very warm and good humoured gig.

Anywhere I Lay My Head by Scarlett Johansson.

Scarlett made an album of (mainly) late Eighties era Tom Waits songs...it's...interesting.
I need to listen to it more.
I managed to miss the fact that the male voice on two songs belongs to David Bowie.

You made me nervous for a second there. Was there an album by Sweet Smoke I hadn't heard of?

Alas,  no. Only a typing error. It is "Just a Poke"

The backside of the album is also very good. "Silly Sally".

This was very much part of the soundtrack for my life for some years.

Unfortunately their other albums aren't as good......

I'm fairly certain my 14 year old self was listening to that.

My favourite Tommy Vance comment (and sadly I can't remember what about) was ""Hmmmm, it's not mainstream rock, but I think I like it..."
