The Kinks "Autumn Almanac" (Bonus Video Friday)

In the humble opinion of your author, The Kinks are the Undisputed Kings of Autumn Rock & Roll.  (Fairport Convention are second.  And Southern California's favorite sons, The Leaves, are, kinda predictably & inevitably, third.)  "Autumn Almanac," "Waterloo Sunset," "Death Of A Clown," "Days," and "Sweet Lady Genevieve," are all Autumn Song classics to me.  (And who dressed cooler than The Kinks in 1967?  Dave Davies' tie alone in this clip is worth the price of admission.)

inspirational verse; "From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar /
Well, the dawn begins to crack / It's all part of my autumn almanac" - Ray Davies, 1967
