My heart belongs to the Village Green, but as of late, I’ve been waking up with the rhythmic quips of Arthur dancing merrily throughout my head.
Yes sir, no Sir. Where do I go Sir? What do I do Sir? What do I say?
Not to sound like a blemished disc, but in my humble opinion, it really doesn’t get any better than the Kinks. 1968 gave us The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, and the world was forever grateful. 1969 brought us Arthur (or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), and we were once again reminded of how fortunate our helpless souls really are. GOD SAVE THE KINKS!
Ray Davies was incredibly productive in his golden era with a stellar classic/hit average. Regards … Thom
Arthur like Sleepwalker were two fantastic albums that I felt never got the respect that they deserve. Ray Davies is one talented songwriter who has went through so many changes musically it’s hard to believe that it is the same band.
