I came across the Kindle edition of this by chance, and it deserves five stars for - if nothing else - pointing me towards Village Green Preservation Society, which had passed me (among many) by at the time, and fully deserves its "classic" reputation. Andrew Hickey is an excellent writer, clearly with a wide knowledge of music, very perceptive with a great sense of humour, and has much that is interesting and enlightening to say about one of our greatest (and enigmatic) songwriters.

I would also recommend his books on the Beatles Mono recordings and the Beach Boys.

Andrew Hickey sticks to a time period, and as such can dissect and give his thoughts in more detail to every track recorded within the period. His views could lead to hours of debate among Kinks Fans, for instance-was Top of the Pops "A tedious heavy riffer, with no real reason to exist"? was Apeman "the last truly great Kinks single"? I don't think so, do you?

I tripped over this while patrolling on my Kindle. What a super read it was. Well informed criticism and an easy erading style if you want to flip around between albums. Enthralling

Many thanks

A useful addition to books examining the Kinks recorded output during their glory days. If you like the Kinks you will probably find something new and interesting in this, a companion to similar books by Andrew on The Beach Boys, Monkees and Beatles.

A good read for Kinks' fans.

While I don't agree with the author's assessment on some of the songs within the book, I still had a few entertaining hours reading this.
And, needless to say, two people are not always going to have the same opinion on many of the songs.

I was a bit puzzled/disappointed to find that "There is No Life Without Love" was excluded, why exclude this song?
It's one of my favorites, and if other Dave songs - like "Lincoln County" - are included, why not this one?

I think too, that the book would have been even better if the entire RCA period was covered, which would mean discussing the albums "Soap Opera" and "Schooldays in Disgrace". (ie 1964-1975).

But, putting such quibbles aside, I did enjoy reading this book.
