Best Tracks: I Am Free, Where Have All The Good Times Gone
Best tracks: I'm On An Island, Where Have All The Good Times Gone and I am free. The rest are nothing to remember.
Next album would be a great step and Kink's first really good album.
The Kink Kontroversy, wraps up phase one of The Kinks. Much like the two preceding albums, Kontroversy, features a couple of cracking songs and then it's padded out with filler. There are eleven originals here, ten from Ray, one from Dave, and one last rock'n'roll cover, milk cow blues. Best songs without a doubt are, til the end of the day, and, where have all the good times gone, the rest is just about ok. So, that's the first chapter over, next time the band would finally deliver on the album front.
Best Track: Where Have All The Good Times Gone
The Kinks' classic 1965 album "The Kink Kontroversy" has now also been released in a deluxe edition. The original mono album comprises CD 1 while CD 2 is an exciting mix of singles, demos, outtakes and BBC liverecordings.
The original album ought not require a detailed presentation, one can only affirm that it is one of the most important early Kinks albums; not least because of strong songs like "To the End of The Day", "I'm on an Island, "Where Have All The Good Times Gone" and "Ring the Bells"
The same raw unpolished sound that characterizes the album is present on the contemporary single-tracks "Dedicated Follwer of Fashion," "Sitting On My Sofa" and "I'm Not Like Everubody Else" - all three well-known Kinks classics which are all included on CD 2 .
"Mr. Reporter" was at a certain point considered for Dave Davies never released solo album, but here you have a fine version with Ray Davies as lead singer.
Alternative versions of "Dedicated Follwer of Fashion" and "I'm Not Like Everybody Else" are found too - especially the former is very interesting.
"Time Will Tell" is a nice out-take, which probably never got the final touch - could easily have fitted the original album.
"And I Will Love You" is an unreleased EP number, which also sounds a little unfinished and sonically more would fit into "Kinda Kinks"
"All Night Stand" is a demo of a fine little song that was never used for any release.
Second half of the CD are BBC liverecordings, of which two have not been previously released.
All in all a nice release, where the sound is definitely better than on most previously issued CD versions of the album.
Kinks were sticking with their initial sound - this is not as fresh as The Kinks, and isn't as creative as their late 60s work. An easily overlooked album.
Great album. On my wants list.
but dedicated follower of fashion don't belong here!
