Today is Valentine’s Day. I haven’t yet done anything terribly romantic. I did buy my beautiful girlfriend roses, and to be frank I didn’t know how much roses cost until I checked out. To be even more frank I did do something pretty romantic yesterday afternoon. It was Superbowl Sunday, and I came on my own tits. I really did—it had nothing to do with the football game, but I did come like a champ. I wasn’t alone, I was with my girlfriend and somehow, I managed to miss her altogether. Of course, it was a good load, and I was a bit disappointed that I missed my face.

That brings me to today’s album, Face to Face by the Kinks.

I think this album can stand up to anything else released in 1966 and that is saying a dickload. Look at some of the other titles I will provide here, free of charge:

The Beatles—Revolver

Frank Zappa and the Mothers—Freak Out

John Coltrane—Ascension

Bob Dylan –Blonde on Blonde

The Beach Boys– Pet Sounds

Them—Them Again

The Rolling Stones–Aftermath

Sam & Dave—Hold on I’m Comin’…. pretty appropriate for yesterday.

There were several others that are worth mentioning but you get the picture. The Kinks, I think, somehow don’t get the credit they deserve in the States but then again, these colors don’t run!

The second track is amazing and as good as anything coming out in that time period.

Session man I find interesting because I have heard that Jimmy Page was exactly that and it was his guitar you can hear on the solo of you really got me. I have not verified that, but I can promise you that I really did shoot one all over my bulky chest yesterday.

Face to Face is one of the few Kinks albums I own on vinyl, it’s a 180-gram reissue and sounds amazing, I also have Lola (a tremendous album as well) and I am in the market for The Village Green Preservation Society, Something Else, and Muswell Hillbillies. If any of you want to send any of them to me, I could try and come on your chest for you, or just send a sample, in a jar, by post.

Here is a single from Face to Face that did well. I particularly like the upbeat and bright melody in juxtaposition with the lyrics:

AND one of my favorites by the Kinks didn’t even make the album:

I suggest you get this album now, or at least give it a listen despite your xenophobia.

P.S.

I have never really done anything too romantic on Valentine’s Day. I did once go on a date and saw the Bukowski documentary Born Into This, but the girl I was with didn’t dig it so that really doesn’t count.

My cousin once told me, years ago, when I asked him what he did for Valentine’s day, “Not much, me and Sara (his long-term girlfriend at the time) got a bottle of Rum and we got tremendously drunk so I buttfucked her”

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a sucker for romance.
