Matt cooked up this cover and remixed it for me to sing. On this recording, all instruments played by Matt, vocals by me. Originally written and recorded by Ray Davies and The Kinks, it was released in 1966 on the album, "Face to Face". I met Ray Davies, once. Cool dude (had on his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame jacket--well-deserved, I might add). He was telling stories about his first tour of America when the band was being driven around in a Cadillac by music industry mafiosos, heheh...and about making music with his brother, Dave--and their "green amp" in the living room. I asked if he'd listen to my songs and he said, "Yeah, I'll listen," but I never delivered a disc to him (chickened out). This one's for you, Ray smiley

Thanks for the comments everyone! I am stuck in PA on vacation w/a computer that has no audio capability, but was sure Babs would hit this puppy outta the park, and by all your comments I see I was right. Yes, you are all listening to this before I do. I'll hear it next week. I'm looking forward to it!

Hm, I was sceptical, 'cos I love the original... but I like it. Could be either faster (due to the guitars) or more "rhythmic". In my opinion smiley
