The Kinks- "Village Green Preservation Society" (1973) Live, TV

What's more cool than early Kinks? This is the title track of their vastly underrated classic 1968 album of the same name:


  1. YES!! I was listening to this yesterday with my family for Christmas. Protecting the old ways from being abused. It's such a tender, gentle, heartfelt and nostalgic trip. "People often change...but memories of people can remain" :)

  2. Vinnie, thanks for the thoughtful comment and thanks for following the blog. I agree; it's interesting how memories are what we hold onto for a sense of stability in ours lives. Just imagine life without the ability to remember- seems impossible.What's ironic though is that like people, memories often change too, and at least in my case, the older I get, the more they seem to change. Let me know if you have anything you'd like to request for a future post/download.

  3. Great band and one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

    I had the privilege to see them a lot around this time frame and it was truly amazing.

    Thank you for posting this.

  4. Hi stinky.steve, yes, it's insane how underrated this band is. Must have been pretty amazing to see them live in their heyday. Thanks for the comment!

  5. Ray is a true showman, every tour he would take great command of the stage like few other rock acts could.

    Thank you for the great blog.

    I found your place the other night and I really like your collection of things.

    You have the top spot in my book marks list.

    Thanks again, ....s.
