Kinks live at the Fillmore 1969, (From Ian S.)



1969 soundboard quality.

The Kinks - Live at Fillmore West 1969


This gem is one of the few available shows from this time period, probably the most productive of their career (coming on the heels of arguably their best albums, Village Green Preservation Society and Arthur, both of which were complete failures in the U.S.). This show was one of their first in the states after the ban barring them from appearing in the U.S. was lifted (after almost 4 years!). The exact reason for the ban by the American Federation of Musicians was never made quite clear (even to this day), but Ray and the boys did not perform in the U.S from 1966 through most of 1969. Anyway, here in their appearance at the Fillmore West, the band was in fine form, and they delivered a very eclectic set that scattered some of their hits (Tired of Waiting, You Really Got me, Till the End of the Day, Well-Respected Man) with numerous relatively obscure album tracks (Your Looking Fine, Big Sky, Mr. Churchill Says, Brainwashed, etc), that were virtually unknown in the U.S., and were not often performed in concert in subsequent years. So enjoy this unique taste of '60's-era Kinks.
