Fan Asks The Kinks To "Do It Again"

What motivates a man to go on a mission? How about a mid-life crisis and possibly losing your job. A few years back, journalist Geoff Edgers was approaching 40 and faced the very real possibility of being laid-off from the financially troubled, Boston Globe. So, he did what any self-respecting music fan would do. He set out to reunite one of his all-time favorite bands, The Kinks.  Edgers documents his journey in the new film, “Do It Again.”

    We recently uncovered the Ray Davies “Storyteller” CD from our library and over the last few years, bought a ton of Kinks music. It was always great stuff, but now it almost seems better than I remembered. This was a great interview and I can’t wait to see the film.
