After a string of great albums from Face to Face to Lola Vs Powerman The Kinks went into terminal decline. I remember buying this album at the time and thinking they had sold out to America. If songs about old west Virginia and Oklahoma weren't bad enough, Ray's constant whinging about modern life began to increasingly jar. Although the production was crisp, it lacked that density of sound that made listening to the old records such a delight. There were a lot of struggles in Ray Davies' life at the time and a change of labels which no doubt contributed to his vanishing muse. However, no matter how great any group is they all seem to have a purple patch that defines their career and the rest is pretty much disposable. Even The Beatles White Album was patchy and they finally tripped up on Let It Be and The Rolling Stones records became irrelevant after Exile on Main St. Still, The Kinks are one of the great enduring groups of sixties who produced much great stuff in their prime.

I reckon this is the Kinks at their very best. Not their best known work, but full of keen observation and social comment, and brilliant sing-along tunes.

I've had the original muswell hillbillies for years and thought this might have been more but as much as I have enjoyed the Kinks since (you really got me) really the original is all you need. God bless the Davies brothers.

Great Country and Western song - the song of the album title. I have always liked it and it's a classic. Good strong songs on the rest of the album.

This may be better quality, being an SACD, but it's only 2.0. Sony will be pleased, but not me. If you like the Kinks and it's missing from your collection, but it.
