Editors' Notes On this 1980 live album, the first power chords of “The Hard Way” resume the full-on guitar pummel that first announced The Kinks with “You Really Got Me.” Their '70s hit “Catch Me Now I’m Falling” includes the riff from The Rolling Stones’ “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” The Pretenders covered “Stop Your Sobbing”. The Jam nailed “David Watts.” “Lola” was again becoming a minor hit. As per usual, The Kinks admit what other bands won’t. They did careful overdubs on this live album to make it sound even better. While there are greatest-hits albums that collect the group’s highlights, this live set is a great reintroduction for old fans.
