Speaks his mind on music & movies!
CB was familiar with The Kinks from songs he heard on the radio, ‘You Really Got Me’, ‘Sunny Afternoon’, ‘Lola’. So when he ventured out to buy a Kinks album he was overwhelmed by the choice of titles. He grabbed ‘Greatest Hits’ it made sense to him.
What did he get? Exactly what he was looking for. More music from this band that had caught his attention. Only 10 songs but every one of them added to his already growing Kinks appreciation. He couldn’t get enough of these guys. They played and sang cool songs plus they really rocked when they wanted too.
It was the first time hearing most of these songs for CB and it made him want to get everything they ever recorded (which he eventually did). For now he immersed himself in this record. From the 1st cut ‘A Well Respected Man’ to the last cut “You Really Got Me’ CB wore this record out. Multiple plays and it just got better.
The back cover gave information on the band which was all new to Babyhead. Cool to learn where these guys came from and a little about their histories. But as cool as it was to put faces to the music, it was still the music that did it.
So you know what was next? The next album. Where to start? But first CB still had more listening to do with this album. The Kinks were becoming one of those special bands that he couldn’t shake even if he wanted to and why would he want to?
