Title - 'The Kinks Choral Collection
Artist - Ray Davies
Telling it like it is, Ray Davies, the legendary lead singer of The Kinks has had more than a successful career within the music industry. Indeed, one that spans some 40 years, it has been filled with endless hit songs, some with lyrics that show his wit, cynicism, and sometimes inner personal joy in so many ways that they never fails to make me smile!
He has written some of the best songs ever heard down the years and here on 'The Kinks Choral Collection' we get our history re-taught thru the eyes of the master himself; and a fantastic new choral/band set of arrangements.
Overall this inspirational new album offers so much to explore and admire from fans who own the entire Kinks catalogue on vinyl or to complete newcomers.
It features all-new versions of classics such as "You Really Got Me", "All Day And All Of The Night", "Waterloo Sunset" and many more - all featuring the wonderful-sounding (65 member) Crouch End Festival Chorus.
And lest we forget such Kinks classics as "Shangri La," "See My Friends," and both "Village Green Preservation Society" and the CD opener, "Days."
