Two albums to add to your list would be Arthur and Low Budget.

Seen them 4 or 5 times over the years. Never, ever a bad show.

These vids are from the last time I saw them.  Them and the Allman Bros were the highlights of this 7 hour long nonstop concert.  3 separate stages for continuous music.
 
Arthur is  the peak Kinks album imo.

After that, it's a bit of a toss-up. I't probably go with Muswell Hillbillies or Soap Opera. Lot's of great individual tracks on other albums though.

 
I actually spent the last 2 days listening to virtually the whole Kinks catalog and after Lola this is where most of the good stuff is:
 
  and I agree with you on this one:
 
Which tells us they were at the peak of their creativity late 60s early 70s.  What a time for music in general from say 68-72.  Peak of album oriented rock. {#Notworthy}

I was good.

It was good.
But I thought the original version was even gooder.
How can you beat that?

I agree with you, c -  last election, he seemed genuinely shocked that he didn't win (there's that ego again).  Of course, we've also got Marc Katz running for Lt. Gov.  Not sure what I think of that either, especially because, in Texas, the Gov is just a figurehead - all the power rests with the Lt. Gov.

 
Yeah, Marc makes a mean reuben, but that's hardly a qualification for the most powerful Executive position in the State.

Honestly, while I don't really think either one is qualified, I'm not sure they would be any worse than the folks who are in there now. They would at least be entertaining.

He is a great entertainer. Period. His plans as Governor include casino gambling, since he loves going to casinos. THAT is responsible leadership?

I like Kinky: he is smart and funny. But he has an outsized ego that, among other things, makes him utterly unsuitable for the job as Governor. Which is not to say our last two Governors have been wild successes, or even merely minor failures, just that Kinky is not the answer.

His work to rescue animals has been outstanding, no doubt. And he injected some life into a moribund Governor's race, where the Democratic candidate hardly even bothered to show up. But neither of those qualify him for the Office.

Didn't mean to indicate he would be a good Governor just that he was running. 

But seeing as how you brought it up - his reason for casino's makes as much sense as most politicians opinions (and at least he is honest about it).  The fact that he has an outsized ego makes him perfect to run for office and serve IMO.  No one will ever win office that doesn't have a huge ego and it helps in getting things done.

I for one think we need more people in that vein running for office.  An honest, outspoken idosycratic guy with different ideas, doesn't pull any punches and the ability to shock the populous into paying attention beats heck out of anything we have in ANY office now. 

If I were a Texan he'd get my vote.  (but then again I did vote for Obama, what do I know?)

In other news, Kinky Friedman is pretty cool too, and writes some decent hard boiled detective books. He should probably be the next President of the United States.

I have kept up with his career for a while.  He is also best friends with Don Imus and is often a guest on his show.  ( I know - let the Imus bashing begin)
