Can you believe that #thekinks breakthrough album #somethingelse turns 50 this September? It truly sounds like something else for it's time. It opens with rocking mod classic #davidwatts still sounding like a pre-punk warning shot. I prefer this version to the Jam's cover. It ends with perhaps their enduring composition, the wistful and lush #waterloosunset . The songs in between are also well sequenced making this in my opinion the Kinks pinnacle, just about perfect from start to finish. I am holding a 1967 Dutch Pye original that was discovered during a layover in Amsterdam. The sound on this NM recording is outstanding with #raydavies vocals seemingly jumping from the vinyl! 😉 What is your favorite Kinks record?
#MayVinylChallenge playing catch up again (skipping day 17 because I haven't found anything written in a sleeve) so Day 18 - Favourite marble/splatter. I was going to do Flume - Skin purple marble but my stupid phone camera couldn't seem to catch the colour and it just looked grey, so second best is Frank Ocean - Endless!
