10 reasons TO love KINKS COVERS

I’ll tell you what, next to The Clash, my favorite group of all time just might be The Kinks. Not because every album (or every song on a lot of albums) is a gem, because the band has sure had their clunkers. but because those albums and songs that did hit, stayed with me.

The first cassette I ever owned was “Misfits.” It was a birthday present, and at the time, “Low Budget” was a mash hit, and that was the one I’d asked for. So I was sad to see Ray Davies’ warped face on the cover, instead of the high-heeled painted-toenail of a lady’s foot. but I gave it a chance. From the opening notes of the album, the wistful rain of guitar notes before the drums kick in on the title track, I was hooked. I played it until I could hear the other side through the tape. then I gotten the CD. then the import version came available, and I gotten that.

With so much product on the market these days, it’s hard for albums to have shelf-life. but for me, there are lots of Kinks albums that I still listen to, end-to-end, on a regular basis. I even like the records from their a lot more commercial phase, in the late ‘70s to the mid ‘80s, to some of their a lot more “classic,” earlier albums. but there’s so lots of great ones. Their first, eponymous record, village green Preservation Society, Schoolboys in Disgrace, low Budget, give the people What They want . . . even their relatively recent double album, To The Bone, is great. So, the Kinks need a post.
