Living in the Material World by George Harrison

12/11/2020
One could argue, as I have, that this track as well as the album that bears its name is the greatest assemblage of musicians on any solo Beatles album.

Duration:00:10:13

Too Hot by The Kinks

12/10/2020
This is a solid mid '80s rocker that probably should have appeared as the A side of the single instead of the B side.

I'll Cry Instead by The Beatles

Duration:00:12:16

Moments by The Kinks

Of all the great lost Kinks gems, this one may be the gemiest. It's a word, trust us.

Louisiana Sky by Ray Davies

This song captures the relaxed, loose, American roots music feel that Ray Davies has been searching for for 50 years.

Duration:00:08:25

Greece by George Harrison

12/1/2020
It's practically an instrumental -- and a pretty poppy one at that -- with some strange chord changes.

Duration:00:10:25

When You Were a Child by The Kinks

11/30/2020
This Dave Davies rocker is a solid album closer and probably deserves more attention than it received in the latter years of The Kinks.

20th Century Man by The Kinks

Michelle by The Beatles

11/23/2020
You know you're good when a song you threw together in an attempt to flirt with girls at parties becomes one of the most beloved ballads of all time.

Duration:00:17:23

Here Comes Flash by The Kinks

9/25/2020
This rocker delivers a lot of exposition but does it hold up out of context to the rest of Preservation Act 1?

Duration:00:09:17

Woman Don't You Cry For Me by George Harrison

George Harrison was never funkier than he was on this album opener.

Duration:00:09:43

The Way Love Used to Be by The Kinks

9/23/2020
The Kinks at their most baroque, this short track from the Percy soundtrack is a true hidden gem of the band's early 70s era.

Duration:00:10:47

Come Together by The Beatles

9/22/2020
John was tasked with writing a political campaign anthem and his inability to do so resulted in one of his most iconic songs ever.

Duration:00:16:12

I Gotta Go Now by The Kinks

9/21/2020
Probably one of the most obscure Kinks tracks from their early days and, maybe, rightfully so but this little blues track is pleasant enough.
