Biography

Dave Davies founded the Kinks in the early 1960s and forever changed music after he sliced up the speaker cone of a little green amp and created a revolutionary, distorted guitar tone and frenetic solo on song You Really Got Me. Musicologist Joe Harrington described the Kinks' influence: "'You Really Got Me', 'All Day and All of the Night' . . . were predecessors of ... Read more in Amazon's Dave Davies Store

23. This Man He Weeps Tonight (Mono Single B-side)
24. Mindless Child Of Motherhood (Mono Single B-side)
25. Mr Reporter (Alternate Mix)
26. Hold My Hand (Demo Version)
27. Good Luck Charm (Studio Version)

Tracks 1-4, 7, 9-12, 14-19 & 21-24 are all the same mixes as featured on the recent Deluxe editions (and the 2004 Village Green Deluxe)
(although track 23 here is superior as it does not have the mastering errors (clicks and pops) present on the Arthur Deluxe)

Tracks 5, 6 & 8 are previously unreleased songs which have only been available on bootlegs in poor quality. It's worth buying the CD just for "Crying", I'm amazed it wasn't released at the time!

Tracks 13 & 20 were left off the Deluxe editions. The stereo version (track 13) is a previously unreleased mix.

Track 25 is an alternate stereo mix from 1969.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue release 4 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you're interested in this album you're presumably already a big fan of the Kinks and have already bought the new deluxe Kinks reissues.

In keeping with the deluxe Kinks reissues this set has stunning sound quality throughout (far better and fuller than they've ever sounded before)

Most importantly this set features the first official release of Crying, Do You Wish To Be A Man and Are You Ready. These songs have only previously been available in bootleg form with appalling sound quality. This set also features the tracks that were included on the 1990s reissues but left off of the deluxe reissues and a handful of interesting (but inessential) alternate takes and mixes. The studio version of Good Luck Charm that as previously only available on the Picture Book boxset is also featured here.

This album may only attract hardcore fans but would be every bit as enjoyable to someone who had only previously heard Death Of A Clown.

Buy with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time! 29 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Thanks to Kinks fan Russell Smith for this review, first published on the Dave Davies Q&A forum:

"Dave Davies Hidden Treasures has probably taken as much work to
pulling together as the Picture Book box set did. In my humble opinion it a very
important release. Yes, strictly speaking it is a compilation - but, in reality
it is far more than that and certainty more important and should not be
considered just another arbitrary rounding-up-of-tracks that the Kinks down the
years have been victim to. Whilst it will not have quite the impact now, had it
been released back in 2002 or 2004, it is still a very important release not
least because it pieces together one of last enigmas in the Kinks catalogue, the
long overdue and eagerly awaited recordings that were considered and recorded
for Davies Davies's legendary unreleased 1969 solo album, including the
remaining unreleased tracks.

Thoughtfully compiled it includes outtakes, rarities, alternate mixes, as well
as all of Dave Davies's Pye singles (in pristine quality) from 1967 when Death
of a Clown rode high in the charts, until 1969 when the first phase of his solo
career was put on hold. The entire album is *newly* mastered by Andrew Sandoval
(the sound quality is gorgeous and makes it stands apart from what has gone
before on that point alone) an extensively researched 7000-word liner note essay
written by yours truly, along with a very detailed track and recording
annotations provided and prepared by Doug Hinman. All housed in a beautifully
designed package, containing rare images and memorabilia throughout. In my
humble opinion it is probably the best prepared and researched Kinks archive
release released to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Underestimate Dave Davies Contribution 12 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The long awaited release of "Hidden Treasures" by Kinks icon Dave Davies leaves the listener astonished that this project has taken so long from its original conception to its release. I guess we will never know the real reasons. The wonderful news is that this is nothing less than a masterwork. The remastering and remixing is of the highest order and will please those audiophiles amongst us. The stereo balance is very pleasing. The music here is (I think) all written by Dave with excellent arrangements and great vocal delivery with a range of approaches which keeps you interested throughout. I have followed both The Kinks and the Davies brothers careers from the outset and their position at the top of the sixties/seventies artists is well deserved - perhaps even a little underrated. Some of these songs have appeared elsewhere but their presentation here is the best available to date and along with the recent remastering of The Kinks back catalogue make this an important addition. On many of these songs dave's concentration is on the vocal delivery rather than his lead guitar. He demonstrates that he is just as capable as his elder brother as both a songwriter and vocalist. The individual Kinks - messrs Ray Davies, Pete Quaife, Mick Avory and then John Dalton who replaced Pete Quaife are all variously present on many of these recordings with Quaife's bass playing a standout on many tracks. The booklet is of the highest quality with some good informative text and high quality images too.

In all a most welcome (dare I say exciting!) addition to Dave Davies body of work which also adds a quality addition to your Kinks collection too! Most Highly recommended - look out for his new album this year. [[ASIN:B005GCNUQ8 Hidden Treasures]

Dave Davies was in the background in the Kinks more so than his brother Ray.
Understandable maybe as Ray was the songwriter and main vocalist in the Kinks. Read more
