Nostalgia - It Ain't What it Used to Be
Another keeper from my recent windfall is The Ultimate Collection by the Kinks.
I've posted some of their 60's stuff before from a vinyl compilation to great acclaim.
It was released however before 1982's Come Dancing their first UK top 20 hit in 11 years.
Written by Ray Davis in memory of his sister Rene who died of a heart attack while dancing at a dance hall.
On the back of this hit the followed up with Don't Forget to Dance which was not nearly so successful.
Ray has recently been knighted so arise Sir Ray. This begs the question. What about the rest of Muswell Hill's finest. Why not Sir Dave and indeed Sir Pete and Sir Mick?
