@bmg_us just released the 50th anniversary edition of “The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society” (@bighasslemedia), hands-down one of the best and most influential rock albums ever. Nine years ago, when @thekinksofficial main man (and MAGNET hero) Ray Davies guest edited magnetmagazine.com, he revisited the LP's title track and provided insight into its nostalgic reflection on British culture past. So for the next two weeks, we're going to revisit Davies' commentary on this classic album's centerpiece. And as always, god save the Kinks.

Here Giorgio Gomelsky started the Crawdaddy Club in 1963, naming it after a Bo Diddley's 1960 song called "Doing the Craw-Daddy". The Rolling Stones were the house band of the Crawdaddy Club in 1963, followed by The Yardbirds, but the very first house band was the Dave Hunt Rhythm & Blues Band, who for about six weeks in January-February 1963 had Ray Davies (later founder of The Kinks) as their guitarist. Other artists who played at the club include Led Zeppelin, Long John Baldry, Elton John & Rod Stewart.

It now houses the One Kew Road restaurant.

The Inspiration
By #RayDavies of #TheKinks remembering his NYC neighbor #JohnLennon
PublishedDecember 8, 2010 The NY Times
IT had just turned December on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I was on my customary morning jog, heading out of Central Park toward 72nd Street. The sun was out but it was treacherous underfoot. I’d slipped on some ice and gone tumbling, to be rescued by a group of college boys.
“Are you all right, sir?” they asked, sounding concerned in a way that indicated that I might have looked frail, fragile and quite possibly old. I felt like saying, “Of course I’m all right, man, can’t you see that I am a globe-trotting rock star?” But I saw the genuine concern in the boys’ faces and thanked them, cautiously continuing my run.
As I crossed Central Park West, I noticed a woman who looked like Yoko Ono standing alone by the traffic light on the corner. It occurred to me that I had never seen her without John Lennon at her side. It was typical to see them holding hands, or with their arms around each other in a comforting way.
I had seen them on the street many times and even though I’d met him in his days as a Beatle, I had always kept a polite distance. I value my privacy and respect the privacy of others. But on this occasion I tried to make a connection. I shouted, “Hi,” as I ran past; Yoko nodded politely. I could have been anybody.
At my apartment, I picked up a Times article about John and Yoko’s new album, and how John had declared that it shouldn’t be necessary for artists to suffer. Reviews had been positive and this reassured me. “If J. L. can do it, so can I,” I thought. He had become a hit-and-miss solo performer, but that was the joy of his solo career; he was not afraid to fail. With the Beatles he’d probably got bored with having to remain safely successful.
A few days later, I had to leave for Paris for a tour with my band, the Kinks. When I arrived, I went straight into an early-morning session of interviews. ( continued in comment section below)

Released the same day as The Beatles’ White Album in 1968 and ... slightly less popular. As in, sold well among the Davies family only. Rioting hippies weren’t much into “little shops, china cups and virginity”. Still might be their best.

#TheKinks release their fourth album, Face to Face, in the US on Reprise Records 
They were Unable to tour to promote the album, thanks to the US musicians' union ban.
This marked the turning point in #RayDavies brilliant career as the undisputed world champion of songwriters as this was first Kinks album with no covers and every Song written by Ray.  And his songs also took on a much more deeper and philosophical meaning as he observed the world and personal issues.

When I was small I believed in Santa Claus
Though I knew it was my dad
And I would hang up my stocking at Christmas
Open my presents and I'd be glad
But the last time I played Father Christmas
I stood outside a department store
A gang of kids came over and mugged me
And knocked my reindeer to the floor
They said
Father Christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys
Don't give my brother a Steve Austin outfit
Don't give my sister a cuddly toy
We don't want a jigsaw or monopoly money
We only want the real mccoy
Father Christmas, give us some money
We'll beat you up if you make us annoyed
Father Christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys
But give my daddy a job 'cause he needs one
He's got lots of mouths to feed
But if you've got one I'll have a machine gun
So I can scare all the kids on the street
Father Christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
Give all the toys to the little rich boys
Have yourself a merry merry Christmas
Have yourself a good time
But remember the kids who got nothin'
While you're drinkin' down your wine
Father Christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
Father Christmas, please hand it over
We'll beat you up so don't make us annoyed
Father Christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys. #thekinks #raydavies #davedavies

«Schoolboys in Disgrace» - концептуальный альбом 1975 года от The Kinks 🎸🤘#thekinks  Критики считали его последним альбомом, в так называемом «театральном» периоде группы, и их финальным релизом для RCA Records #rcarecords 
Рей Дэвис после альбома «Soap Opera» хотел вернуться к более простому року и начал разрабатывать следующий альбом в наиболее простом и ориентированном на рок группу звучании #raydavies 
Возвращение к простому року требовало и простых тем. Дэвис, не отказавшись от своей любви к концептуальным работам, построил альбом как ностальгическую поездку по школьным временам, где лирически описал школьный путь молодого мистера Флэша, взяв за основу рок-н-ролл 50-х но сделав чуть-чуть громче #rocknroll #rock 
В целом альбом интересный, мне понравились композиции «Schooldays» «Headmaster» и «No More Looking Back» #vinyl #vinylliveshere

@bmg_us just released the 50th anniversary edition of “The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society” (@bighasslemedia), hands-down one of the best and most influential rock albums ever. Nine years ago, when @thekinksofficial main man (and MAGNET hero) Ray Davies guest edited magnetmagazine.com, he revisited the LP's title track and provided insight into its nostalgic reflection on British culture past. So for the next two weeks, we're going to revisit Davies' commentary on this classic album's centerpiece. And as always, god save the Kinks.

Me with my hero Ray Davies in The Clissold Arms #raydavies #thekinks
Haven’t found the perfect vintage tree topper yet, so we’re just going with Sir Ray Davies this year.

The Kinks “Something Else by The Kinks” [1967, Reprise] - In the middle of their run of three 60s classics (the others being “Face To Face” and “Village Green...”) is this one which showcased the incredible songwriting of Ray Davies as well as showing that brother Dave was no slouch either!  If it just had “Waterloo Sunset” it’d be a classic but of course it also has “David Watts”, “Death Of A Clown”, “Two Sisters”, etc etc.  I’ve always loved The Kinks and hope that the next generation of music lovers embraces them as much I did (looking at you Oliver...). This is an original US pressing with the classic Reprise “steamboat” labels (in shrink hence the wonky photo). #thekinks #raydavies #classicrock #60srock .

• what‘s your fav song by the kinks? • [📸 1965, NYC]
Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, rolling into the night
People so busy, make me feel dizzy, taxi light shines so bright
But I don't, need no friends
As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset, I am in paradise
Every day I look at the world from my window
Chilly chilly is the evening time, Waterloo sunset's fine
#london #raydavies

It’s not officially the Christmas season until I hear the greatest rock & roll #Christmas record ever made. ❤️😎🎸 “Have yourself a Merry Merry Christmas, have yourself a good time. But remember the kids who got nothing while you’re drinking down your wine.” #raydavies #TheKinks @thekinksofficial

Wanted to redraw a screenshot from Ray's 1970 movie, 'the long distance piano player' ! It's up on Youtube if you want to check it out. Some really heartbreaking stuff. But I love his cat smile!! #raydavies #thekinks

The great #davedavies formerly of #thekinks while being in one of the best #bands ever ever ever, Dave in his own right was a phenomenal #songwriter and #guitarplayer and as a #singer could easily hold his own with his famous brother #raydavies He released a plethora of #solorecords most of which were excellent, and with the release of brother Ray’s #americana series recorded with #thejayhawks it was high time some of Dave’s solo stuff saw the light of day or got rereleased. This #record #decade on #greenamprecords is an amalgamation of #mid1970s sessions that were kept under wraps and released recently. Excellent #rockmusic .
