The Kinks, "Days"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week it's back to London in 1968 with The Kinks for a proper single (recorded for the purpose - not an album track), "Days". As would be expected, writer Ray Davies drifts far from the 'Street Fighting Man' spirit that is usually associated with that year...
"In 1977, as I was developing my game as a publicity/promotion man, I landed a small back office in London's Old Compton St. I used to go in Saturday mornings to tidy up whatever mess had been left Friday and plot up for the following week. Next door was a pub and one sunny Saturday I was having a solo early lunchtime pint when along came Ray Davies seeking the same. We stood outside in an almost deserted street, neither one of us asking the other any questions - just some shared mutual observations. This record always reminds me of that." - KV
