  • ******************************************************************************* Album...............: The Kinks - Kinks are The Village Green Preservation Society ******************************************************************************* Announcement/Review/Personal Comment ******************************************************************************* ATTN:track 16 & 17 had read and sync errors during the rip,track 17 came out fine,track 16 has a Suspicious position at: 0:00:57 - 0:01:10 !!! I didn't hear anything wrong playing the original on my stand-alone CD-player and didn't either hear anything wrong playing the wav & flac-files in WinAmp.Also I burned both tracks with EAC on a CD-R played it on my stand-alone CD-player and didn't hear anything wrong. SO IT'S YOUR OWN CHOICE,WHAT TO DO WITH THIS RIP !!!(as always :-) :-) :-) ) ******************************************************************************* I certainly love the Kinks; it's been fifteen months since I've had a new Kinks album in my house, and though I've been listening to them I've missed that pleasure. Bob played The Village Green Preservation Society for me when he bought a British copy, about a month ago, and I've played it twice since it arrived here this afternoon, and already the songs are slipping into my mind, each new hearing is a combined joy of renewal and discovery. Such a joy, to make new friends! And each and every song Ray Davies has written is a different friend to me. Ray makes statements, he says the sort of stuff that makes you delighted just to know that someone would say stuff like that. "As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset I won't feel afraid." "I'll remember everything you said to me." "There's too much on my mind, and I can't sleep at night thinking about it." "There's a crack up in the ceiling." "I'm not content to be with you in the daytime." "The world keeps going 'round." "I'm on an island." "You just can't stop it, the world keeps going 'round." Oh, wonderful Kinks. They remind me of Erik Satie. "We are the Village Green Preservation Society." The vocal is under-recorded, so you turn up the volume. The bass and drums sound so easy and sure. Everyone's determined; no one's in a hurry. "What more can we do?" Such very fine vocals. The tune, the rhythm, are more of a delight with each verse. Dave Davies' lead lines are never wasted. It would be unbearable that the song's over, but here's another. "Walter, isn't it a shame our little world has changed?" Now why is it Ray's songs always sound like something else, a different something else with each song and sometimes with each hearing? Sure, he's the world's master plagiarist, but it's more than that. It's more a feeling that it's all part of the same thing, it's all music and isn't it nice to run a cross this melody again? And it is, it's never a repetition, it's always some sort of opening. Ray Davies makes you realize how much there is all around us, waiting to be explored and explored again. Boredom? Every place you've been is a new frontier, now that you're someone different. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tracklist ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.
