Kinks Live 1977

Here we have a couple of superb shows from the 'Sleepwalker' Tours (1977), each featuring very different setlists, mixing in some of their classics with the
excellent new Sleepwalker songs, as well as some songs from their much-maligned theatrical concept albums of the mid-70's. I include both here because, although the Rainbow Theatre show is a better recording and includes the essential tracks, the Winterland show provides a more extensive and quirkier setlist, containing many songs they no longer performed after this tour. Well worth checking out both.

Note: The Winterland show was actually 2/19, not 2/18 as indicated on many of the bootleg versions. The show on 2/18 was actually in Santa Monica, CA, and apparently an excellent tape of this show does exist (Now available here:the-kinks-1977-02-18-santa-monica-ca.html).
