I've been in contact with several of our less-active members and have gotten great response to the idea of having a set time when we all log on to be here together. I'd love to try it this coming Sunday, June 28th, from 9-11pm Greenwich Summer Time, which would be 4-6pm Eastern Daylight Time, 3-5pm Central Daylight Time.
Please get the word out to as many people as possible! I'll message folks on Facebook too.
And think of some fun games and threads to introduce that day to remind everyone of how much fun we can have here together!
not to be contraversal(spelling), but who else is tied of waiting for new music from ray? a new album has been threatened for a few years now with supposedly something coming in the fall. also there were supposed to be deluxe edition reissues of the kinks catalog which saw the release of lola vs powerman and the new anthology box which duplicated much of the picture box set of a few years back, but nothing since. i've been hoping for a deluxe everybodys in showbiz with the complete concert but no news or rumors anymore. every now and again the reunion talk comes up but thats is tiresome news when it pops up a few times a year. the 50th anniversary came and went with nothing to show for it but the anthology box. the grateful dead are releasing a box containing 1 concert from each year they were active, 30 shows over 80+ cds and the surviving 4 are doing shows this weekend and next.
Don, I so agree with you. The word is that Ray put off his nearly-completed new album because he was so involved with getting the musical Sunny Afternoon off the ground, and you have to hand it to him, that project came off brilliantly. Still, if the album was nearly done, how much work would it have been to finish it?
As for the reunion, it's so typical of the Kinks that they couldn't bury their differences to take advantage of that anniversary. Lost opportunity!
