Kinks In Concert 1974

The Kinks
The Kinks In Concert 1974

FM Broadcast (BBC) recordings, excellent quality

New! Now upgraded and greatly expanded to include entire BBC Broadcast.
Now available in upgraded mp3 (320 kbps)

Excellent recordings (made for BBC In Concert series) of the mid-70's era Kinks. Includes probably the best available recording of 'Slum Kids', a good song from this era that was played in concert throughout the '70's, but a studio version was never released (or apparently even ever recorded). The setlist features songs from their newly released Preservation Act 2, as well as some great versions of a number of classics ('Dedicated Flower of Fashion', 'Lola', 'Celluloid Heroes', 'Here Comes Yet Another Day') from the Kinks catalog, and also includes a wonderful version of 'Skin and Bones' merging into the old standard 'Dry Bones'.

A studio version of "Slum Kids" was released as a bonus track on a CD reissue of Preservation Act 2.

Private Beach,
Yes, you are correct that 'Slum Kids' was included as a bonus track on the 1998 Preservation 2 CD Reissue (and subsequent reissues). However, it too was a 'live' version, and not a studio track, as indicated in the liner notes, and obvious when listened to (I was a bit disappointed, as I was hoping for a studio version). In fact, it is the inclusion of this live rendition rather than a studio outtake on this reissued CD that makes me suspect that a usable studio version may not exist. Otherwise, why wouldn't they have included that instead of this live version (which is presumably from sometime in 1979)? Thanks for your interest and comment.

Just a little thank you for the re-ups. Take care man.

I have not seen the 6/4/74 dates anywhere for tracks 7-9...think those dates are accurate? Not even on the new 5-CD Kinks at the BBC set?


More awesome stuff -- thanks.

And, yes, I am genetically unable to refrain from asking about a lossless link :)
