Detroit 1979 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Cobo Arena, Detroit, MI; August 10, 1979. Very good soundboard.
Over the years, even as the show (during the Low Budget tour) had been shared in various versions, it has managed to garner a good following. Unfortunately, the opening track, Sleepwalker, is missing and the end to You Really Got Me is cut (tape flip?).
Thanks to lwilkers who shared the tracks in 2006.

This is a cool companion to The Kinks’ One For The Road [live album recorded between 1979 and 1980]… The Davies’ brothers are in top form here on this SBD recording! Usually, Ray is the star of the show, but, Dave kinda steals the spotlight from him on this one… but, really, they worked well together, even when they weren’t workin’ well together… Ray’s sort of soft singing style compliments and offsets Dave’s dirty and gritty guitar… Listen to Dave Davies’ guitar on this one - it’s awesome, and when he kicks it in - damn! Do yourself a favor and give this one a listen… and really tune in to Dave’s guitar tone and style, and you’re guaranteed to get a real earful of six string fun!
