Watch: The Kinks – L’Olympia – Paris (1965)

I guess this live-concert footage has been available for a while, but it is nothing short of revelatory.

If there was ever any doubt that The Kinks, long underappreciated, hit the ground running, this short show sets the record straight.

This is a rough and dirty set, mixing ‘classic’ rock and blues songs and some of the then newly-released original tracks.

The band is tight as tight can be.

And the rabid fans are quite literally insane!

‘Bye Bye Johnny B Goode’
‘Louie Louie’
‘You Really Got Me’
