Dated but not in a 'commercial style sell-out of the season' way and musically joyous. I voted for the first one. Freshest of the three.

I already have a couple of compilations by the Honeybus. Out of these 3 I like Girl of Independant Means

I still like the Kinks

I think all three are exceptional. But by the same token - not quite in the same league as a handful of lesser-known tracks by a lot of middle the pack 60s bands like the Turtles, Rascals and Hollies.

"Fresher Than The Sweetness In Water" sounds like Emitt Rhodes

"Girl Of Independant Means" has the "Jean Genie" riff with a bit of a Simon & Garfunkel thing thrown in
