Sorry James,, her name is Iola as in Iowa, not Lola.
But thanks for the clip of one of my favourite bands doing one of my favourite songs.
Ray Davies.....coulda done better :(
Are you dismissing the Kinks entire oeuvre or just their
first single "See My Friends"? If the former, we disagree, if the latter, I agree it's not my favourite Kinks cut.
Your link relates not to an album, but to the single, hence the identification of its B side in the side bar.
I think Pete Townshend summed it up well....
....when he called Ray Davies "A f*****g genius."
He is a brilliant writer and has always been one of my favorite artists. He created the "Storytellers" concept that is still going strong on VH-1. I was fortunate enough to see him at a relatively small theater doing a Storytellers-type show. Some people were annoyed by all the talking but I loved listening to his stories.
I wish there was an Edit function!!!
I completely forgot to mention that I saw Dave Brubeck at that same theater around 15 years ago. Great show!
oops!! seems to be a Firefox/Cnet glitch
Okay, Jonah, but Wikipedia still lists it as a single.
Didn't you like any of their music? I've got vinyl of about 8 of their albums beginning with Lola ..., and I really enjoy them all. Apeman is a wonderful track, my son thought it was great at about the age of 3, and I loved Muswell Hillbillies and their renaissance in the Punk era.
see the link on the third line
For the 2010 Ray Davies album, see See My Friends (album).
loved a lot of their music (first 3 years at least) they
were so different to all rest
