Ray Davies @ Commodore Ballroom, 9-July-2006

Ray Davies CD

While in Vancouver I was able to catch Ray Davies & Band at the Commodore Ballroom on Granville St. It’s a nice upscale venue, with a big floor and plenty of tables and chairs to the sides. Ray played a combination of old Kinks favorites and tunes from his solo CD “Other People’s Lives”. I found the band sounded pretty muddy, and it was not always easy to make out what Ray was saying, but in any case I enjoyed the show. The old songs like “So Tired” and “Set Me Free” were great to hear, and the new material held up pretty well. I’ve only listened to the CD once so far, but I’d say it’s good.
