Fighting? Oh yes.
As Ray says "Once I get started, I go to town"  with his brother Dave in famous circumstances, which pretty well did away with the Kink's chances of staying in the same league as the Stones and even the Beatles.

Breakthrough for the Davies. True rock'n roll, and an icon of a song for an icon of a band.   {#Notworthy}.

Nice live version. Dave's guitar and background vocals are really great, as usual.

Who is doing all the "rating" I keep seeing referenced here? Substitute "esteemed" or "admired" or something that does not sound like an advertising agency thought it up. Just a thought.

A poor version of an OK song by one of the most overrated bands in history. All this adds up to a 2.

SO-much different from their first release.... Teen awareness of being clever and wonderful then are now angry and refusing to compromise based on experience... Very-good...

I saw the Kinks one time... They almost got in a fight with Bill Graham before they came on. Almost literally fighting. That show was pretty awesome.

Wow, I can't believe this is out of print!  The Kinks must be one of the most ill-served bands in history by their various record labels.

Two from Chrissie's band, one from her one-time man Ray's band.  What's next - gotta be Jim Kerr and Simple Minds.

I wish their damn record label would finally rerelease this. It's only available as an expensive, out of print collectors item. Or at least get me this damn song as an MP3. Please!

Wow that little Pretenders>Pretenders>Kinks run was nice.  Chrissie & Ray were a couple (had a child together).  I remember how sad it was Chrissie's guitarists ODed.  I always reckoned that "Something Better" was written by Ray for Chrissie.  Big fan of both bands.

When this first started playing, I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not. I thought it was missing some of the urgency and rawness of the studio version. But I listened to the entire song, and it really grew on me. It's an amazing live performance. Good stuff. 8.
