Kinks arthur or the decline and fall of the british empire

The Kinks were never as commercially successful as their mid-1960's peers, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, or The Who. Nevertheless, the band is frequently cited as one of the most important, influential acts of the 1960s, and the quality of their finest material remains unquestionable. The Kinks early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll that reverberated for decades. Their best albums, such as ''Face to Face'', ''Something Else'', ''Arthur'', ''Village Green'', ''Lola'' and ''Muswell Hillbillies'' are unique, ...

The US version is missing three tracks. "I Took My Baby Home" had already been licensed to Cameo in the US as the B-side to " Long Tall Sally " and so could not be included. "I'm a Lover Not a Fighter" and the instrumental "Revenge" were held over for the US-only Kinks-Size album.

" You Really Got Me ", a Ray Davies song, influenced by American blues and the Kingsmen 's version of " Louie Louie ", [26] [27] was recorded on 15 June 1964 at Pye studios with a slower and more produced feel than the final single. [28] [29] [30] Ray Davies wanted to rerecord the song with a lean, raw sound, but Pye refused to fund another session; Davies took an adamant stand, so the producer, Shel Talmy, broke the stalemate by underwriting the session himself. [31] The band used an independent studio, IBC , and went in on 15 July, getting it done in two takes. [28] The single was released on August 1964, and, supported by a performance on the television show Ready Steady Go! and extensive pirate radio coverage, it entered the UK charts on 15 August, reaching number one on 19 September. [32] [33] Hastily imported by the American label Reprise Records , it also made the Top 10 in the United States. [4] The loud, distorted guitar riff and solo on "You Really Got Me" was played by Dave Davies and achieved by a slice Dave Davies made in the speaker cone of his Elpico amplifier (referred to by the band as the "little green amp")— helped with the song's signature, gritty guitar sound. [34] "You Really Got Me" has been described as "a blueprint song in the hard rock and heavy metal arsenal", [34] and as an influence on the approach of some American garage rock bands. [35] After its release, the group recorded most of the tracks for their debut LP, simply titled Kinks . Consisting largely of covers and revamped traditional songs, it was released on 2 October 1964, reaching number four on the UK chart. [36] The group's fourth single, " All Day and All of the Night ", another Ray Davies hard rock tune, was released three weeks later, reaching number two in the United Kingdom, and number seven in the United States. [4] [34] [37] The next singles, "Set Me Free " and " Tired of Waiting for You ", were also commercially successful, the latter topping the UK singles chart. [7] [37]
