A Listmania! list by David Tomlinson "chinese_bookie" (Chicago)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Kinks
1.  Kinks by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "The first LP, with the first hard rocking, invention of heavy metal, raving, totally unique monster: You Really Got Me. You had to experience the early/mid 60's to understand how unique this song was!"
5.75   Used & New from: 4.46
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

The Village Green Preservation Society
2.  The Village Green Preservation Society by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "The Village Green is what the Kinks represent to me. A forelorn, whistful look back at what England used to be. With VGPS, Picture Book, Phenomenal Cat, Days and Mr Songbird. Just wonderful."
29.88   Used & New from: 5.90
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Something Else By The Kinks
3.  Something Else By The Kinks by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "Comsidered by Many to be one of the best ever Kinks albums, and it's hard to disagree. The Kinks are really coming into their own on this one, with David Watts, Waterloo Sunset, Two Sisters (great!)"
6.92   Used & New from: 4.44
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Face To Face

Arthur - Or The Decline and Fall Of The British Empire
5.  Arthur - Or The Decline and Fall Of The British Empire by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "Arthur was the 2nd Rock Opera ever created. Pretty Things S.F. Sorrow was the 1st, Who's Tommy was the 3rd. You decide which was best."

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Lola Versus Powerman and The Moneygoround, Part One
6.  Lola Versus Powerman and The Moneygoround, Part One by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "Lola, what can I say about Lola? A mjor hit for the Kinkls, and unfortunately, what everybody remembers about the Kinks. I am so sick of the song, but the LP is great, with Apeman (bananas man!), etc."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Preservation: Act 1
7.  Preservation: Act 1 by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "Preservation Act 1 was a totally radical departure for the Kinks. Ray was getting into politics, art, stage plays, etc. This one is a total departure from their Pye days, and one of my favorites."
12.99   Used & New from: 6.74
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Preservation Act 2 [European Import]
8.  Preservation Act 2 [European Import] by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "Act 2. Preservation was originally conceived as a three act play. This is is the 2nd Act, the 3rd never saw the light of day, as the record company saw dismal sales and abandoned it. Another favorite."
16.41   Used & New from: 4.50
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Soap Opera
9.  Soap Opera by The Kinks

Low Budget
12.  Low Budget by The Kinks
