    Avid Geoff738, the way things look, you probably get a Dunkin’s before you get a Tim Horton’s :laugh:

    Anyway, Happy Victoria Day to you and your distaff Avid sibling Someone Else and any other Avid Canadians lurking around here. We must adhere to CanCom regulations on this day by presenting the following:

    I just realised that Saloman reminds me of the vocalist from Australia's Redgum.
    Not quite the same tone but the phrasing, considered and gentle resignation and humane delivery all have some similarity do these two mother's son's!

    Thank you very much Michael for your company in my record store visits beyond the inner-city limits. For the (vinyl) record I didn’t buy Scandi prog metal. It was a nice used copy of Allas Sak - the 2015 album by Swedish psychedelic rockers Dungen. I wonder if @StefanWq knows of them or, even better, has seen them.
    In the other store I bought a new copy of See You in the Next Life by Suede - a selection that impressed the store owner so much that he shook my hand three times! There’s a tip Michael: get even better deals on your future Stones, Hendrix and Yardbirds purchases from him by branching out into indie Britpop. :winkgrin:
    Even though it wasn’t The Kinks, I can’t fault Michael’s Stones CD selections. I concede that my bias against Hot Stuff was wrong. It sounded great in the car.

    Ray's indulging him but I don't think Damon's in the same ball park, life.

    Yes, I am familiar with Dungen. Back in 2010, I wrote a music book in which I interviewed 24 Swedish songwriters from different genres about songwriting and creativity. One of the songwriters I interviewed for the book was Gustav Ejstes of Dungen. Each songwriter included in the book has their own chapter, 15 to 20 pages long (including photos and album discography). The book was published in 2010 and is now sold out (so I now spend my days counting my royalties in my own private jet... not really, but the book being sold out probably means I just about recouped my expenses). (Vägen till sångerna : samtal om kreativitet och låtskrivande av Stefan Warnqvist (Häftad) )

    Sadly, I haven't seen Dungen live yet, but they have a gig coming up in Stockholm next week which I'd like to attend.

    Please let me know if there are any Dungen records that you are looking for for your collection.

    That's a nice song I'd not heard, the melodic guitar lines especially on the slide have me sometimes thinking of Day After Day by Badfinger.

    Thanks Steve,
    I would be surprised if Sonic Sherpa offered a discount to anyone though I don't mind a store owner congratulating me on a purchase unless it's Mary Anne with the shaky hand!

    Well few are, but the smile of thrill on Albarn's face when Ray starts playing one of his songs is pretty priceless.

    Obviously I never got to play with any of my "musical heroes", but I imagine it would be weird and daunting.

    You ain't the only one. My experience is a little complicated by the fact that my brother and I used to split the vinyl record purchases and kept them all together. When I finally moved out of my parent's house, we didn't remember who bought what for who as a birthday present, etc, and split them as best we could.

    I repurchased a few albums on single discs, and taped others, but eventually I repurchased the double CD editions of all the Pye albums. I'm pretty sure most are Sanctuary, but I don't have time to pull them all out right now. I have most of the RCA albums, including an expanded Showbiz, and triple CD Muswell. I never repurchased Schoolboys. I also never repurchased, Misfits or Low Budget, and I don't own Give The People What They Want, State of Confusion, Word of Mouth, and Think Visual, making do with Spotify for those for right now. I'm kind of holding out hope that they will be re-released as special editions at some point.

    I also have The Kinks Anthology 1964 - 1971.
    The Kink Kronikles
    All Ray's solo albums, with the exception of Return to Waterloo, and Our Country.

    More interesting to me are the albums that I acquired since the start of the thread :).

    Regarding Blur and Oasis. The first time I ever heard of them was in an audio interview with Ray Davies. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I heard it. Ray was asked about what current bands he liked, and Blur and Oasis were, I think, the only ones he mentioned. The whole Britpop had thing passed me by at the time, but when I did check out some of the albums by the two mentioned bands, I much preferred Blur. I've also liked a few of the Gorillaz songs I've heard.

    I know you said you didn't care for Pulp @mark winstanley. I have meant to check them out since I really liked a Jarvis Cocker solo album, Beyond The Pale, which I've listened to a few times. This was the track that caught my ear. It's a little goofy and over the top, but I love it. Part of the verse, since it starts at the beginning of time, makes me smile in its ridiculously broad lyrical scope :). Reminded me of Now and Then's "In the beginning of it all......" in that regard.

    Ok, my library of Kinks related stuff includes:

    Kink by Dave

    X-Ray and Americana by Ray. I believe I borrowed X-Ray from my sis decades ago and never returned. So if you’re wondering where it went sis, once you read this you’ll know.

    Kinks Kronikles by John Mendelssohn
    The Kinks the Official Biography by Jon Savage
    The story of the kinks you really got me by Nick Hasted
    Ray Davies A Complicated Life by Johnny Rogan

    I think that’s all of them.
