It's a real funeral song isn't it? It's lovely I think.

This might be another occasion where I confuse reality with a dream I once had, but didn't they re-record Big Ship for Ships & Irons?

The Kinks = rock's second best 'brothers' act! :twisted:

Wonder when Jim's solo 45 is going to come out....

I saw Dave Davies a couple of years ago, a great big Kinks singalong, a fun evening that was! He also wrote 'Death of a Clown' and 'You're Looking Fine' for the Kinks, amongst others I'm sure.
