The Kinks
November 13, 1970
Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA

'Top of the Rocks'
Audience recording, Good Quality
mp3 @ 320 kbps

Here's one more early '70's Kinks show, as the Kinks return to the Fillmore West just about a year after their highly successful stint there in 1969 (great concert boot from that show was posted previously). This one is a bit of an oddity, however. Ray and the band are very loose and deliver a rambling eclectic set that seems more like a rehearsal session than an actual performance. It does have it's moments, though, such as a 10-1/2 minute extended jam version of 'Last of the Steam-Powered Trains' and a rockin 'Brainwashed'. Overall, not really one of their best shows, but, as always, still interesting and great to hear them at this stage in their career.
