Continuing Retro Week with a 1965 session from The Kinks. Another band that shaped the future of Rock in the 1960s with some of the most memorable and influential songs of the British Invasion period (and well into the 70s with the iconic Lola), The Kinks exemplified the craft of excellent song writing, and were one of the primary forces turning Rock n’ Roll into music with a head on its shoulders.

This session, recorded by the BBC on December 13, 1965 turned out three numbers; A Well Respected Man, Till The End Of The Day and Where Have All The Good Times Gone. All three songs part of the endless run of hits the group had during the early period.

And like most of the material in the Kinks catalog, it’s maintained a timeless quality, in all these almost 50 years.

If you’ve never heard them before – pretend they just got together.
