Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Kinks' early singles set a new standard for raucousness. "Louie Louie" chord progressions and monosyllabic declarations of lurve (love definitely isn't a strong-enough word) drove "You Really Got Me," "All Day and All of the Night," and "I Need You." Only maniacal cackles from guitarist Dave Davies could've heightened their simple eloquence--and he provided even those before his solos on "Got Me" and "All Day." But brother Ray's observational talents quickly began to show: the optimistic "Till the End of the Day" is shadowed by an unspoken wistfulness, while "A Well Respected Man," "Dedicated Follower of Fashion," and "Sunny Afternoon" remain among the most cutting portraits of Britain's upper-class strivers. Both of the band's main impulses continue to be immensely influential, while the enraged "I'm Not Like Everybody Else" merges them in a three-and-a-half-minute burst of cold fury that few bands would match until the Sex Pistols era. --Rickey Wright

This CD is a defenite must if you don't know a lot about the Kinks, but know that you like "You Really Got Me," or "All Day And All Of The Night." Going beyond just those two songs this CD expands on the Davies genious and gives you a glimpse of why they actually are credited as helping start the punk movement nearly a decade later. Yet other songs stick to the pop ballad formula of the 60's British Invasion. If you buy this CD with the belief that this is all the Kinks had to offer you are WAY OFF WRONG. This CD is merely a stepping stone for those who are unfamiliar with the KINKS. Believe me, their music, for a period of time, got better and better. I would have given this CD 5 stars for the music, but due to the recording quality... something that was out of their control due to contracts and copyright ownership in the 80s, I gave it a 4. Not a bad recording, but their remastered stuff is far better. Sad to say this recording label hasn't done so yet. Still it's a must!

Having loved the Kinks as a young teenager in the mid nineteen sixties, I was delighted to find this CD. Even though most of the music on this album is a quarter of a century old, it is still relevant today, with its distinctive rhythms and highly stylized vocals which always let the listener know that it had to be The Kinks to whom they were listening.
While many of these songs were a part of the British invasion in the wake of the Beatles' success, there the comparison should end, because these were the bad boys of rock with their thought provoking lyrics and rage at class divisions. They were precursors for what was to come down the pike in terms of music. They set the standard for punk and techno-rock rhythms.
While some critics say that the later Kinks were much better, that may be so, but without the success of this early music by The Kinks, there would have been no later music. This is a CD well worth having.

This wonderful collection documents the most relevant years of the Kinks. While I must aggree with the other reviewer that most "Greatest Hits" projects tend to be slightly evil and the truest way to understand a song is in the format of its original album. However, in this case many of these great tracks would be overlooked as they are B-Sides to singles. For that reason, this album is essential to any sincere record collection. Fabulous obvious tracks like "You Really Got Me", "All Day And All Of The Night", and "Tired Of Waiting For You" are met by other great singles like "Everybody's Going To Be Happy" and "Dedicated Follower Of Fashion". The selling point here is B-Sides like "Who'll Be The Next In Line", "I Need You" and "I'm Not Like Everybody Else". If you have only one Kinks item in your record collection, make it this one.

For whatever reason, original Kinks LPs are increasingly hard to find. Best Of/Greatest Hits compilations are getting to be few and far between as well--grab this one and KINK KRONIKLES asap.
Some of the tunes on this CD have been played to death on oldies radio, but much of the early stuff--especially "All Day And All Of The Night"--are so great they overcome radio programmer dysfunction with flying colors.
"You Do Something To Me" is one of the catchiest things to never chart in the US. Sounds like a second single from the O-Needers. Oops--I mean the Wonders.
There's a series of singles, from what was once considered the Kinks middle period but must now be called they're late-early period (?), including "A Well Respected Man," "Stop Your Sobbing," "Dedicated Follower Of Fashion," and "Sunny Afternoon," which are among the greatest songs of their time. Too bad the Kinks were labeled "too English" by block-headed American radio programmers of the day.

This is a great cd to buy for all of the early Kinks singles (most notably "You Really Got Me"). That said, they went on to do much better things. A lot of people would say the Velvet Underground are the most underrated band of all time, but everybody knows that -- so in reality the Kinks are! - I am a huge music fan, but I just recently discovered the Kinks (I am 29 - I discovered them 2 years ago). They are brilliant!! This album collects their earliest singles and "Come Dancing...." collects the later ones. What establishes them as pure geniuses of pop music are there albums, though. Buy these now!!!!: "Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society" -- this is easily as good as Sgt. Pepper's, Highway 61 or VU + Nico.... and get "Arthur, or decline....", and "Something Else" ---- after you have those three get "Muswell Hillbillies" and "Lola..." -- then get this greatest hits comp and the "come dancing" comp. and you will have the heat of heat of kinks stuff and you will be wondering, like me and a lot of other confused people why this band wasn't huge! But it is O.K. - they will be your private band that you don't have to share with the rest of the world (unlike the equally (but not more)brilliant) Beatles. The heat kids - THE HEAT!!!!
