Friday Night Kick Back: Ray Davies and David Bowie perform Waterloo Sunset

Time to kick off the shoes, pour a glass of wine and enjoy what is left of Friday night here at the Village Green.

And what a treat tonight, thanks to good old Youtube and a tip of the old British music hall hat to Frank Lima of the Kinks Preservation Society Email Digest for pointing it out. The actual video is provided by Nick:

"David Bowie and Ray Davies perform Waterloo Sunset live at the Tibet House Benefit, Carnegie Hall, New York, 26/02/2003.

This video comes from his David Bowie DVD collection which is listed on this page:

Speaking of the Tibet House Annual Benefit -- it is coming up very soon. If it weren't on a Monday I would be sorely tempted to see this year's concert. Details ahead, followed by an amazing duet from the Benefit four years ago.

That was fun to watch! Bowie is amazing, he continues to be challenging and fresh.
I have the Nirvana Unplugged version of The Man Who Sold The World on a tape compilation in my car and I am always anticipating hearing it.
Interesting line up at Caregie Hall.
I haven't heard any Laurie Andersen work for years.
