The Kindle ebook deal of the day over at Amazon today is 10 titles in the 33 1/3 book series that focuses on specific albums from artists like David Bowie, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, and more for just $.99 each.
One of the key all-time British Invasion bands, The Kinks remain one of rock and rolls best. Their quirkiness, unapologetic style and influential and memorable musical pizzazz took their sounds lofty high and valley low for over five decades now. This collection, from the midpoint in their career and from when they were signed to Arista Records, contains great tracks such as “Destroyer,” “Come Dancing,” “(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman,” the cynical and tongue in cheek holiday classic “Father Christmas,” and live versions of two of their best known songs, the rocking “You Really Got Me” and the ambiguous “Lola.”
Browse the main sale page to see the other 99 albums on sale for only $5 each in MP3 format through the end of March 2012.
