#926: 1967, The Kinks, Autumn Almanac

by George_East on August 29, 2014

The leaves are already beginning to turn, the days are noticeably shorter and there is a chill in the air.

I’ve been lucky enough to be off work for pretty  much the whole ofAugust but will be back at my desk on Monday.   It is the first time in many many years that I am feeling the end of the summer in the way that I felt it as a school boy – as what seemed like the endless holiday days ahead finally and inevitably came to their end and school returned.

This is The Kinks at their late 1960s peak, recorded and released as a single between their two greatest albums, Something Else and The Village Green Preservation Society. It was also the first song that came to mind when today I was pondering the sad end of a long summer break.
