Freakin’ Weekend: The Kinks – Where Have All The Good Times Gone – New England Record Show in Somerville
I just got back from the from the New England Record Show in Somerville and it was, per always with these events, Heaven on Earth. I walked out with fourteen 7″ 45’s and fifteen LP’s all for about $100 US dollars. The $20 entry fee was too steep, but to be in a room with that variety of knowledge and music makes the price arbitrary. I talked with oldtimers about rare Kinks albums, waxed poetic about Silkworm, and scored some Funkadelic and Parliment records I’ve been chasing for awhile. I got a great UK release of Lola, which I’m listening to as I type, and “Where Have All The Good Times Gone” is SUCH an underrated song by them, so damn good. Gob Bless Records. God Bless Vinyl Heads. God Bless The Freakin’ Weekend.
