Here's one more early '70's Kinks show, as the Kinks return to the Fillmore West just about a year after their highly successful stint there in 1969 (great concert boot from that show posted previously). This one is a bit of an oddity, however. Ray and the band are very loose and deliver a rambling eclectic set that seems more like a rehearsal session than an actual performance. It does have it's moments, though, such as a 10-1/2 minute extended jam version of 'Last of the Steam-Powered Trains' and a rockin 'Brainwashed'. Overall, not really one of their best shows, but, as always, still interesting and great to hear them at this stage in their career. I picked this up from 'Viva Les Bootlegs' awhile back, so thanks to them.

Tracklist:
1. Opening (Mr. Wonderful)
2. Till The End Of The Day
3. Last of the Steam-Powered Trains
4. Big Sky
5. Brainwashed
