A Song At Sunset
Thinking further about music (I play music all day while I’m working), I suppose the third huge band in the sixties after The Beatles and the Rolling Stones was The Kinks. But Ray Davies didn’t create psychedelic, pulse-raising sounds. A humanist, he wrote about working lives with an unfashionable nostalgia that cost him a certain amount of fame. Not long ago he led this charmingly shambolic rendering of Waterloo Sunset at Waterloo, at sunset. The final result can be heard on the delicious choral Kinks album.
