We’ve just acquired a rather tasty selection of super rare original pressed Kinks vinyl LPs, early Kinks albums (like the Beatles/Stones) were a mixture of amped up R&B and soul covers (hello Too Much Monkey Business and Dancing In The Street) plus some killer originals; Stop Your Sobbing, Tired Of Waiting, Come On Now (’nuff said!). Ray Davies’ inspired song-writing – quickly eschewed the Americanisms of his peers and produced a run of 7″ singles and long players that, not only were the match of Lennon/McCartney and Jagger/Richards (oh yes they were), but whose subject matter was on a different page – at turns cynical and poignant, check Dedicated Follow Of Fashion, Where Have All The Good Times Gone, Waterloo Sunset, Sunny Afternoon (need I go on?) if you need proof.
After the band were refused entry to the U.S. (due to a ‘disagreement’ with the all-powerful American Musicians Union), the Kinks produced a series of albums that whilst largely overlooked at the time are now rightfully acknowledged as outright classics, the wonderful ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Society’, the wide-screen sounding ‘Arthur, Or the Decline Of the British Empire’ and the bitter ‘Lola Versus Powerman & the Moneyground’ (what is it with the long titles?).
It’s not often we see Kinks LPs from this era in such great condition, here’s a couple to whet your Kinks whistle, you can see the full list here
