More Ray Davies ...

... have I mentioned that I think the Kinks are the great rock band? Also Muswell Hillbillies is one of the best albums.


  1. Yes indeed; Kinks Kontroversy for me. And Autumn Almanack their great single together with...Waterloo Sunset. Takes me back to school and Utopian moments; reculer pour mieux sauter.

  2. Well, FACE TO FACE and SOMETHING ELSE are also quite formidable. And I have a soft spot for THE GREAT KINKS LOST ALBUM. But, yeah, John Lennon (much as I love him) didn't quite have the lyrical courage that Davies did. Even accounting for "Mother" and "Cold Turkey."
