  1. 1. Which one should I order?



Recommended Posts

This thread has given me an idea for a band wars thread that I might come back to but that’s not why I started it...

 

Got a discount code for a vinyl from Amazon so I’m going to order either The best of The Kinks 1964-1970 or The Who hits 50. What say the GF?

 

The best of The Kinks 1964-1970. Side one mono, side two stereo.

 

Side 1

1."You Really Got Me" (2:12)

2."All Day & All Of The Night" (2:21)

3."Tired Of Waiting For You" (2:30)

4."Set Me Free" (2:11)

5."See My Friends" (2:44)

6."A Well Respected Man" (2:39)

7."Till The End Of The Day" (2:17)

8."Dedicated Follower Of Fashion" (3:00)

9."Sunny Afternoon" (3:34)

 

Side 2

 

1."Dead End Street" (3:17)

2."Mr Pleasant" (3:01)

3."Waterloo Sunset" (3:16)

4."Victoria" (3:38)

5."Lola" (album version) (3:58)

6."Apeman" (3:50)

Can’t deny the significance of either band, but I could not be less interested in them, either. Fuck them both off and buy something new instead.

Not a lot of new stuff I like. Don’t think I’ve bought a new album since the Michael Kiwanuka one.

Considering you're talking about getting vinyl, I would imagine The Kinks would sound better in that format. What little I've heard of their stuff just seems more suited to it.

Saw Ray Davies years ago, was a brilliant night, it was half story telling and half gig. 

 

He told the story of how they smashed an amp to get the sound they wanted.

Has to be The Who but I wouldn't get a Greatest Hits. Get Live at Leeds, Sell Out or Who's Next.
