Love Come Dancing. There was some good Kinks material in the 80's. I thought the whole Give The People What They Want record was solid.

No. I'd suggest no more than about four at a time, and no more than one post per day. Believe me, readers won't look at more than the first few. And there's no reason you can't continue to keep this thread active for months.
