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 !

THE KINKS : Fillmore West 29/11/69

Last post for 2010, plus its my Birthday today so here's an absolute cracker - The Kinks live @ the Fillmore West in November 1969. Ray Davies is a bona fide genius & his repertoire over the years speaks for itself. Download this gem & enjoy.

For all my regular visitors & contributors, plus Kinks fan Cockney Steve.



Here's a little bonus - a version of "Days" - one of Davis' best songs for me...

  5. Thanks all. Received a copy of the Keef Richards book for me Birthday... feel a few Stones posts coming on in 2011

  6. Belated Happy Birthday and New Year mate! Looking forward to downloading this one, BIG Kinks fan.

    Agree with you on 'Days' being one of their best, but a bit difficult to listen to these days as I had it played at my little bruv's funeral a few years ago (also a huge fan), still makes me teary.

    I also got Keef's book for christmas, saving it for when I go on holiday next week. Winter sun, bring it on...
