Mono!!! Face To Face and Something Else shine as do the Beatles before Sgt. Pepper.
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:22pm clarke:

as for mono vs. stereo debate - it is kinda like the thing: what was it like growing up without a father? you don't know any different until you compare. in other words, we were all fine with our stereo versions, as andrew intimated. until you hear mono mixes, stereo is what we grew up with.

@Andrew. Thanks for answering. Such a pity he rejected the Jeannie Lamb-versions. I mean, it's history, and now we still don't know (and probably never will) how those songs sounded.

Ok, this gets my vote for the #1 song I hate to love. The Jags imitating Joe Jackson imitating Elvis Costello. It should make me shrivel up. But I can't help myself.

We, the Dutch Kinks Preservation Society, tried to get the Kinks to Utrecht in the Netherlands in 2008 to celebrate 40 years of the VGPS-album, but we didn't succeed in bringing them together that year. We had Pete Quaife as guest in 2004 and Ray in 2010, but unfortunately it wasn't to be in 2008. A missed opportunity.

I like this song better than "What I Like About You"

"Talking in Your Sleep" splits the difference?

This is an outstanding riff.

hi folks!

thanks hughie - i WILL be getting that book!! i found andy's remembrances VERY inspiring on a writing/recording level (i.e. stealing ideas!) and read most of them, for a while. but, i am sure i missed some and then i am not sure when they lapsed....
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/20/18 12:35pm Squints In Plymouth:

Just as well. The indie single version of Tell It To Carrie shreds the Nemperor LP version.
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:35pm clarke:

..or IF they have lapsed??

"Talking In Your Sleep" might be their best.

frank - did u ever figure out what was wrong with your speakers????
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/20/18 12:50pm Frank In Queens:

I'm not sure exactly. It sounded better after I switched to vinyl that day and it's been better since. But it sounds like the tweeter isn't always producing a sound in the left channel. I think it's just time for new speakers...
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:51pm clarke:

before you do that: switch wires just to see if it is NOT the speakers.
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:52pm clarke:

also, the speakers could be repaired - but, not as easy in the city, i guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/20/18 12:52pm Frank In Queens:

It better not be the wires. I paid good money for them and they're only a few years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/20/18 12:53pm Frank In Queens:

I'm not sure it's even worth repairing these. They're not very expensive or highly regarded, and I could probably upgrade cheaper than what it would cost to have them fixed.
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:54pm clarke:

i don't mean switch the KIND of wires - i mean switch the connections at the amp to the speakers to reverse the right and left and see if the sound stays the same
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:55pm clarke:

if the left speaker makes the same noise on the right side - then it may be your amp??
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:55pm dennis diken:

thanks for a gasser of a show Mikey!
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:56pm clarke:

but, you are right - there are certainly some killer deals out there on craigslist, these days. i got a FREE set of camb soundworks bookshelf speakers a few weeks ago.
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:56pm DG:

Hey, I have this single, always liked it (another example of good music from a bad film)...I think this is a bonus cut on the Blood & Chocolate CD (although it didn't have all versions). I remember EC playing this at his B'way shows in '86 (either live or over the sound system before he went on---maybe someone here remembers).
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:57pm clarke:

no, i WON the rocktobah
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:58pm DG:

Jeezus, why play the ravings of this idiot? ("We should empower the pharmaceuticals"...huh?) They should make this into one of those "A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste" PSAs.
  Sat. 10/20/18 12:59pm Cooh John:

Tell Clay Pigeon that last song had the lyric "wake and bake ".
