5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and pure Klassic Kinks, 10 Jan. 2002
This superb double cd opens with a description of the Kinks by the BBC presenter as `the shaggy set'. The boys (and Ray's first wife Rasa) then kick into a slightly warmer version of YRGM which is upbeat and bassy. The BBC sesssions really emphasise the youth of the Kinks when the first started and amusing interviews with the band throughout the cds create a fabulous piece of history as well as music. Great versions of Waterloo sunset and the Village Green Preservation Society stand out as does this Strange Effect a song written by Davies for Dave Berry. Disc 2 also has some gems especially in Celluloid Heroes `their biggest non-hit'. If you've bought the singles collection this is a superb follow up and a must for all Kinks fans. God Save The Kinks and we all await a new album in 2002!!

5.0 out of 5 stars We want the finest wines available to humanity,, 9 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Withnail And I [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Absolute perfection, I can safely say Withnail and I is the best film I have ever seen. Set in the 60s `Withnail'and his friend `I' play 2 unemployed actors living in abject poverty. Richard E Grant plays the ex public school Withnail and has an aura similar to John Cleese with electric body movements and superb speeches. Paul Mcgann plays `I' the narrator and co-star of the story. The 2 set off for a week in the countryside during which they encounter Withnail's homosexual uncle and a mad poacher!!! If your a fan of 60s culture this film has to be watched it is poignant and funny and quintessentially English. Epic interludes of Jimmi Hendrix and the Beatles heighten the superb atmosphere of the film-It must be watched by all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential to a Kinks fan., 25 Dec. 2000
Written when the Beatles released Pepper `Something Else' certainly had its work cut out. While SGT Pepper was probably the greatest album ever written, the most influential band came up with an interesting collection of songs. The album cover sold it to me but there are some great songs including Waterloo Sunset, Tin soldier man and the catchy Harry Rag.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good overview, 25 Dec. 2000
This is an interesting summary of the Kinks' musical highs and lows. Unfortunately rather than just going on fact the author's opinion becomes too prominent and on a book of this nature fact is much more useful as it is a reference guide not a biography. Anyway listings of their major albums are included and there are some classic pictures of Ray at his best!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated yet arguably the best 60s album they made, 14 Sept. 2000
The end of the 60's saw a difficult time for the kinks. Pete Quaife the bassist was looking to leave the group making VGPS his his final album. It was the title track that did it for me. Superb song writing from Davies as he provides a social commentary of English life with talk of old pubs and English novels. The strong riff backed up well with the rock organ is truly something else not to mention the wailing harmonies and Ray's prominent majestic voice particulalry at the end. Also this song almost predicts the future for English culture with the mention of American stars such as Donald Duck. In a way its almost as though Davies' sensed the move towards America. Other great songs are Big Sky, Walter, Animal farm and Mr Songbird. Although on sales the album did not score it has been said by many that it was their greatest album! I think as fans the appropriate word would be `if only' but despite lack of success its a great album! Spread the word. Enjoy!
