I forgot about that tune. Hope to add to my iTunes library soon. Thanks. Another good one along those lines is “Get Ready,” by Rare Earth.

I was lucky enough to be in my teens during the British Invasion.So many great,great,great,GREAT songs came from Britain.Lots of great stuff coming from the States as well.The 1960’s were,without a doubt,the *best* decade on record for music.

While most bands sounded best in studio.

The Kinks, “One for the Road” is by far the best live album ever produced.

Lola at around 12 minutes

But wait there is more.

“All day and all of the night” at around 19..

And

“You Really got me” at 1:03.

Best version ever !!!!!!!

The Kinks - Catch Me Now I’m Falling

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCR83LxGKkg

I remember, when you were down
And you needed a helping hand
I came to feed you
But now that I need you
You won’t give me a second glance
Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world
This is Captain America calling
I bailed you out when you were down on your knees
So will you catch me now I’m falling

Help me now I’m calling you
Catch me now I’m falling
I’m in your hands, it’s up to you
Catch me now I’m falling

I remember when you were down
You would always come running to me
I never denied you and I would guide you
Through all of your difficulties
Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world
This is Captain America calling
I bailed you out when you were down on your knees
So will you catch me now I’m falling

Help me now I’m calling you
Catch me now I’m falling
I’m in your hands, it’s up to you
Catch me now I’m falling

When you were broke you would come to me
And I would always pull you round
Now I call your office on the telephone
And your secretary tells me that she’s sorry,
But, you’ve gone out of town.

This is Captain America calling
This is Captain America calling

Help me now I’m calling you
Catch me now I’m falling
I’m in your hands, it’s up to you
Catch me now I’m falling

Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling

I stood by you through all of your depressions
And I lifted you when you were down
Now it’s your chance to do the same for me
I call your office and your secretary tells me
That you’ve gone out of town

This is Captain America calling
This is Captain America calling

Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling

I was the one who always bailed you out
Of your depressions and your difficulties
I never thought that you would let me down
But the next time you’re in trouble
Better not come running to me

Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world
This is Captain America calling
I bailed you out when you were down on your knees
So will you catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling

Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling
Catch me now I’m falling

That and this?

Deep Purple-Made In Japan (1972)

Be careful. There are a number of imitations out there.

The real show has a riff in “Smoke on the water” that is wholly unique in their live show.

I saw them at the House of Blues in Los Angeles around 2000 if I recall correctly. They were still rocking it then.

I’ve been a HUGE Kinks fan since “You Really Got Me” was released.

The album “Lola VS Moneyman and the Power-Go-Round” is a GREAT album as is “Mudswell Hillbillies”.

My FAVORITE Kinks tune (done live BTW):
The Kinks - Acute Schizophrenia Paranoia Blues, 1972

The Kinks invented the modern pop/rock formula. Everyone copied them, including the Beatles. I place the Kinks in the same orbit as The Who, The Rolling Stones, and the Fab Four. The Kinks music is a fresh today as it was 50 years ago.

Some time ago I was in an online poker game and one of the players was “David Watts”

I sent him a message “I wish I could be like you”

He nearly lost it.

Said that I was the first to get it.

I saw them on that tour where it was recorded. Great show.

Muswell Hillbillys is one of their top LPs.

Dave Davies had a stroke some time back, don't know the extent of his recovery. I have a copy of him doing a live show at The Bottom Line before that. Very good.

Oh, these songs were all from my rock and roll formative years and bring back such memories, good ones. I love the golden era of rock music, primarily the mid-sixties through the mid-eighties. Such great music.

Agreed. My favorite cut from that album, far better than the studio version. Never mind the homemade video, the track is great.

The first concert I ever attended was The Kinks at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in 1970. For me, the best song by them is “Waterloo Sunset.” I just love that song.

I saw them in Boston circa 1970. They came out drunk and quickly got much drunker. They spilled so much beer on the stage that Dave Davies got shocked and went to the hospital.
Epochal performance! I would have liked to have seen them play but this way better.

The tax man’s taken all my dough,
And left me in my stately home,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
And I can’t sail my yacht,
Hes taken everything Ive got,
All Ive gots this sunny afternoon.

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime

My girlfriends run off with my car,
And gone back to her ma and pa,
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
Now I’m sitting here,
Sipping at my ice cold beer,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

Help me, help me, help me sail away,
Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay.
Cause I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
