The Kinks - 1977-02-19 - Winterland - San Francisco

The Kinks
February 19th, 1977
Winterland, San Francisco, CA

PRE-FM Recording (KSAN Master Reel, except 3 tracks from FM broadcast), very good quality
Available in both Lossless (FLAC) and mp3 (320 kbps) versions
UPGRADE from previously offered version

Now that we're back to The Kinks in 1977, this is a good time to upgrade a couple of old posts from this period. Here is the 1977 Winterland show, which was the very next day after the Santa Monica show just featured. This show was actually one of the very first posts made on this blog 5 1/2 years ago. However, at that time I only had a lower quality version (192 kbps). Now, it is high time to upgrade this great show, so here is the full show in great quality (Pre-FM master recording), and now available in lossless and 320k mp3. The setlist is almost identical to the previous night's show, but still contains some interesting differences and new additions, as they added 'Victoria' as a 2nd encore, and also included 'The Hard Way' in the 'Schoolboys' section. In addition, Ray's voice stays strong through the whole show (his voice started giving out towards end of previous night's show) resulting in some stronger vocal performances on some of the later songs. Overall, just a great show, performance, and recording. So, if you only had the previous version, you will want this one, and if you didn't have it before, you definitely need it now.

01. You Really Got Me (intro.) *
