Happy Thanksgiving from a Kink!


There really are not a lot of Rock N' Roll Thanksgiving tunes, so how fortunate am I that one of my particular artists of obsession, Ray Davies of the Kinks, wrote one of them? Backed by the Max Weinberg 7 and a choral group like the one he's traveling with now, here's Ray singing "Thanksgiving Day" from Late Night with Conan O'Brien back in 2005! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

  1. Unfortunately, after posting this yesterday and checking Ray's Facebook page, I saw the announcement that on Monday Ray was forced had to cancel his US tour due to doctor's orders.

    It has been suggested by Ray's Super Fan, Frank Lima, that everyone call their local classic rock station and request "Thanksgiving Day" in Ray's honor!

    Please do so as the studio version is simply brilliant, almost Motownish! Here's to a speedy recovery for a man who has brought so much music and magic to so many people. Get better soon, Brother Ray!
