The Kinks: Good Luck Charm, featuring Dave Davies (for collectors only, rare boot)

The big breakthrough came with their third single, the Louie LouieYou Really Got Me. It's insistent riff powered what was a classic single to No. 1 in the UK in the Summer of 1964 and it also got to No. 7 in the US. Its style very much set the tone for all their singles in this early period. To cash in on this success they were pressured to put out an album which at the time rose to No. 3. In retrospect, though, it contained little of interest other than Ray Davies' Stop Your Sobbing and the instrumental Revenge (which session guitarist Jimmy Page would later re-record with lyrics added). The remaining material was mostly covers of R&B classics by the like of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, though another rehash of Slim Harpo's Got Love If You Want It had originally been on their five track demo.

Tv cuts, radio promos, raw versions. Ok, the quality is not the best but I can promise that you would feel a whole lotta better after listening this rare treasure. 25 killer songs, plus the full artwork, thanks to my friend Santiago that let me use his scanner. Hope you enjoy this one, this one goes to Henry and Aldo, two special visitors from the house.

certainly some rare stuff here. The Kinks always had power and energy in their live performances, and this is no exception. you are right, the sound is a "bit raw". i don't know if it's a real keeper, but it certainly good enough for a listen or two. Long Live the Kinks! And thanks for thinking of Henry when you posted this one. Smiles and good vibes to you and yours.

thanks a lot, being a big fan of the kinks i really appreciate to find these records here!
unfortunately the file seems to be broken or whatever, winrar tells me that it is corrupt and i can only extract the first 13 tracks from it.
is there any chance for a re-up?

Una joya de los Kinks, con sus canciones más embleticas de su primera época(para mi la mejor)y con toque de naturalidad...en fin perfecto este disco.Mucha gracias Pablo.

i don't recall how many tracks i got when i extracted it, as i gave it a listen, and then instead of moving it to "listen again" folder, i deleted it. Duh ... but i do not recall there being 30+ tracks, so maybe my download was cut short or something as well.

Pablo "Pochola" Cazorla said...
