Hij was erg lekker. Het enige dilemma dat ik tegenwoordig altijd heb is of ik de orginele plaat op zet, of de Amerikaanse versie met Days en Mr. Songbird erop.quote:Op vrijdag 29 april 2011 13:05 schreef cafca het volgende:

2 nieuwe BBC-programma's, gevolgd door 2 herhalingen.quote:Dave Davies: Kinkdom Come
Dave Davies, the legendary guitarist of the Kinks, relives his tumultuous life and times amidst the serenity of his Exmoor sanctuary. Walking across the moors that have fascinated him since childhood, Dave takes us back to life with Brother Ray in an extended working class family amidst the austerity of postwar London. Bringing to life its deprivations and triumphs, he reveals the profound sense of community and family bonds which underpins the extraordinary story of the Kinks. From their formation at a North London Secondary Modern, through time spent as backing band to an upper class crooner at debutante balls, Dave tells how the Kinks career as Searchers sound alikes was almost over before it began.
That all changed though when Dave attacked his amp with a rusty Gillette razor blade in the front room of their semi detached house in Muswell Hill. Slashing the speaker, he produced the distorted, barking dog guitar riffs which powered their first hit, You Really Got Me, catapulted the Kinks to worldwide fame and in the process rearranged the sonic architecture of the 1960s. Finding himself at the unlikely age of 15 enshrined along with Brian Jones and Keith Moon as one of the three undisputed Kings of Swinging London, Dave trailblazed the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. As he puts it, Dave did the partying and Ray wrote about it. In America Dave's shoulder length hair and subversive sexuality on stage drove teenage TV audiences wild whilst scandalising the Rat Pack generation.
Dave explains why The Kinks' refusal to compromise who they were resulted in them being banned from America at the height of their fame. For the next four years, while the Beatles, Stones and Who went onto global megastardom, the Kinks re-invented themselves as the quintessential English group with timeless hits such as Sunny Afternoon, Waterloo Sunset and Days. With disarming honesty, Dave reveals how the burning glass of fame caused the sibling rivalry between him and Ray to explode into violence on stage and mental cruelty off it. He tells how, by the end of 60s, the breakdown of the relationship between the warring brothers and his own surfeit of girls, drink and pills led to the mother of all rock 'n' roll meltdowns. Following the failure of his briefly successful solo career, Dave finds himself locked in a New York hotel room, listening to voices telling him to jump.
The Kinks at the BBC
The story of The Kinks, one of the UK's most important and influential bands, as told from the vaults of the BBC archive. From their humble beginnings in north London, brothers Ray and Dave Davies, school friend Pete Quaife and local drummer Mick Avory exploded onto the music scene of early 1960s London.
From this series of unique archive performances we learn that blues was their first love and Dave's signature guitar sound would go on to influence a generation of guitar players. As Ray's uniquely English songwriting style developed, the spectre of Ray and Dave's rocky fraternal relationship continually loomed in the background through concerts for the Old Grey Whistle Test in the 1970s to appearances on Top of the Pops in the 1980s.
The inevitable band split came in 1996 and the BBC archive continues with Ray's reinvention as a solo artist with performances on the Electric Proms and up to the present day on Later with Jools Holland. All the while the brothers continue to tease and goad the press - and one another - with talk of a Kinks reunion.
Brothers In Arms

They say that blood is thicker than water, and this documentary puts that to the test by examining the brothers who have formed and fronted rock bands. From the Everlys to the Gallaghers via the Kinks and Spandau Ballet, it tells the stories of the bands of brothers who went from their bedrooms to become household names - often with a price to pay. With contributions from Martin Kemp, Matt Goss, Dave Davies, Phil Everly, David Knopfler and the Campbell brothers of UB40.
Ray Davies - Imaginary Man
01:15, BBC4, herhaling
As the creative powerhouse behind hugely influential band The Kinks, Ray Davies was responsible for writing some of the best-loved songs of the 60s, including pop classics You Really Got Me, Tired of Waiting For You, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, Sunny Afternoon and Waterloo Sunset. Alan Yentob meets Davies, a unique talent who describes with rare candour his troubled relationship with fame and the vicissitudes of his career. They also discuss a new album of Klassic Kinks Kollaborations which is near completion and features musical luminaries such as Bruce Springsteen, Mumford and Sons and Metallica.
Nog even een reviewtje.quote:Op maandag 23 januari 2012 15:13 schreef belsen het volgende:
Ik heb mij voorgenomen de komende tijd wat nieuwere albums van The Kinks te beluisteren. The Kinks staan, ook bij mij, natuurlijk vooral bekend om een aantal geweldige jaren 60 platen, maar laten we niet vergeten dat de band, officieel tot 1997 (!!!) bestaan heeft.

Het ruime merendeel van die deluxe-edities had ik al. Wat houdt die monobox in?quote:Op zondag 29 januari 2012 19:11 schreef Aisumasen het volgende:
Verrassend genoeg had ik hier blijkbaar nog niets gepost over de in 2011 uitgebrachte deluxe-edities van de albums uit de jaren '60 en de mono-boxset. Kort gezegd: een must-have. Het is een mooie tijd voor Kinks-fans, wat een stortvloed aan materiaal is er uitgebracht de afgelopen tijd.
