This is where I belong

My sister and I went to a great concert on July 19th: Ray Davies at the Showbox in Seattle.

I used to really be part of the Kinks Kult and had seen the band plenty of times in the 70s and 80s, but I didn't know if I would cross Ray's path again.

The show was absolutely fantastic. I won't bore you with the details -- I've got the Kinks Preservation Society mailing list to do that -- but I can tell you the concert sure made me want to get back in the Kinks/Ray Davies fan line.

And I've just been thinking that Waterloo Sunset may be my favorite song ever.

Here's wishing you the bluest skies, Ray. I've missed you.

Discover The Kinks!

Man, too often are The Kinks underrated. What a great band.

It's been years since I've heard this...
What a fun concert!
Oh, and thanks for the tip on evernotes!

Randal, that was the story of the Kinks' career - - so underrated that they made it part of their identity in the end.

Katie -- Unfortunately, Ray didn't play this song even though I saw later that he had been doing it in some of the concerts. Oh well, the rest was great.
