THE KINKS – Kinks / Face To Face [Stereo Vinyl Rips!]

 

The Kinks are one of the most important Brit invasion bands that influenced 60’s garage rock sound. Here you got their ’64 debut, rockin’ r&b/beat slab with covers of Chuck Berry, Bo diddley, Slim Harpo, Lazy Lester, and some classic R.Davies tunes So Mystifying, Just Can’t Go To Sleep, I Took My Baby Home, You Really Got Me, Stop Your Sobbing. ”Face To Face” is their 4th studio album released in October 1966. The album marked the band’s shift from the hard-driving style of beat music, catapulting them to international acclaim. Being their first album consisting entirely of Ray Davies compositions, it has also been regarded by critics as rock’s first concept album.” Bought these stereo reissues in 1989., they still sound nice today. I know you know but then again… Vinyl rip by Mr.Eliminator. Dig!!!

THE KINKS vs THE 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS vs KENNY AND THE KASUALS

Cool Intro riff for COME ON NOW, B-side of classic Kinks ’65 single Tired of… is a point of collision between these 60’s garage legends. 
As you know, borrow & steal is a common practice in Rock’n’Roll history, so this is a luscious example of how “the same” instro theme can be used in three different tunes with terrific results. 
KENNY AND THE KASUALS used it for their classic ’66 garage nugget Journey To Tyme, THE 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS psychedelizied it in great Tried to Hide. Come on now, Check it out!
