Live Ledge #77: The Kinks

Anybody who follows me on social media is well aware that I was beyond angry this past Sunday when NBC elected to not broadcast Ray Davies' performance of arguably the quintessential British pop hit, "Waterloo Sunset", as part of the Olympic Closing Ceremonies. What moron decided this was a good idea? Instead, they showed One Direction, George Michael, and some creature named Jesse J. Why? Explain this to me.
Tonight's Live Ledge is my revenge. Besides airing the audio of Ray's performance from that evening, the entire show consists of songs written by Ray. A few are actual Kinks originals, but the vast majority are covers of what I consider the richest library in rock history. There's some pop, power pop, a slash of country, and lots of garage and punk classics in tonight's show. This is a keeper, my friends, so grab this now from iTunes, Stitcher, or...
