Bill, that was awesome! I've complimented your playing many times before, but haven't told you that I love your singing, as well! I wish *I* could sing <sigh>

Bill, that was absolutely wonderful. I'm a big Kinks fan from way back and Waterloo Station is one of my favorites. You definitely do it justice. Thanks.

thank you(se) all ...

having seen and understood the lyrics for the first time, i now see that the song - contrary to the popular perception of it being an all-embracing, english classic - is a scurrilous attack on south london from a muswell hill-william from the far-distant north! ... absolutely outrageous!!

"terry and julie cross over the river where they feel safe and sound" ... indeed! if i had understood this at the time we were living in clapham - the REAL london - i would have acquired the necessary travel documents; had my shots taken, etc., etc. and journeyed north to remonstrate with ray about this insidious southern slur.
