Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

The Kinks & the Genius of Ray Davies

If he had just written "Waterloo Sunset" & then called it a day, the title of "genius" would still have to be applied to Raymond Douglas Davies. However, if you examine the many hit singles and albums by The Kinks, then a steadily growing number of gems become apparent. Here are two prime examples of their hit album prowess, in remastered form plus bonus tracks. "Village Green..." manages to give you both mono & stereo versions of the LP plus the mono single version of "Days" - this alone is worth the price of admission !!
