I kind of feel like that fly reading such great post.


Hey Kara,

Nice to hear from you.  I don't even know about this band!  I guess I should 
get out more often.

As for the Kinks, I agree with Mark about Ray and Dave Davies. They are just 
superb songwriters.  Their catalogue is a bit confusing to choose from at the 
record bin, so maybe the experts (Mark and Lew) could give us a hand in 
choosing which way to approach exploring this important band.

I love their BBC disk. It gives a nice overview. Except Bones, and they put 
it on there twice for some reason. Death of a Clown live is better than the 
studio version. I just adore that cd.  My daughter went out and bought it too.

I am very grateful to Ray for writing "Catch Me Now I'm Falling" at the end 
of the seventies.  As a young American then, I didn't know what it was like to 
have a reason to love my country at that time, even though I did anyhow.  We 
were being mocked on every front it seemed and the future looked dim.  It was 
good to hear a European say something nice about us.  Now the Clash? Well, they 
mattered, but they still got a load of boos from us dummies at the 
Silverdome.  Thank you, Ray.

Jon in Mi.
