Arthur or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire (Bonus Track Edition)

The Kinks

The Kinks (1963–1996) were an English pop-rock group that came out of the British R&B scene of the early 1960s. Formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray Davies and Dave Davies in 1964 and categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. In 1990, their first year of eligibility, the original four members were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Later, in November 2005, they were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Among numerous other honours, they received the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Service to British Music in 2006. Formed in 1963 in Muswell Hill, North London, they first gained prominence on the heels of the well-received and highly influential single You Really Got Me (1964). The group originally consisted of lead singer/guitarist Ray Davies, his brother lead guitarist Dave Davies, drummer Mick Avory, and bassist Peter Quaife. Quaife left (twice) in the late 1960s, and Avory finally left in 1984 as the result of a long-running dispute with Dave Davies, leaving only the Davies brothers as the core of the original group. With Ray Davies' songwriting skills and unashamedly English voices, Dave Davies' impressive guitar work, and Avory's tight and steady drumming, the band became one of the best and most influential groups of British pop and the British Invasion of the U.S.A., lasting longer than any of their competitors, apart from the Rolling Stones, as they broke up in 1996. Their catalogue of songs has been covered by Van Halen, The Pretenders, The Black Keys, The Stranglers, Queens of the Stone Age , and many more. In November 2005, the Kinks were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Among numerous other honours, they received the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Service to British Music in 2006.

  • Brilliant album, however...

    I already own this album in stereo. I purchased these tracks here under the assumption that the "mono mix" tracks were actually in mono. They are the stereo versions. False advertising. Be warned, fellow Kinks nerds!

    One of the best albums of all time finally made it to ITunes. Ray's songwriting craft soars with Some Mother's Son, Yes Sir, No Sir and the power of Mr. Churchill Says and Victoria. Australia jams with electricity. Long Live the Kinks!
