This is the independent critical review of The Kinks on record, on film and in concert. Drawing on rare film from the archives this powerful reassessment of the work of The Kinks features every major release from the birth of the band through the whole of the Pye and RCA years and on the beginning of the fruitful liaison with Arista. A leading team of rock critics and musicologists provide penetrating insights into why the music worked so well....and sometimes why it didn't. The 48 page full colour book includes rare photographs and a complete review of every Kinks album from 1964 to 1978 with a complete track by track analysis. This is the ultimate critical reference guide to the work of a band whose influence is still felt today.
