On June 2nd, 1996, Ray Davies appeared as the first artist to perform on VH1's new series "Storytellers".  It is, as Davies says "our little experiment, bum notes, warts and all"  This performance was taped in New York City, during an extended run at the Westbeth Theatre in late 1995. Davies discusses his early influences, the effect his five older sisters had on him, the magic of writing the Kinks breakthrough hit "You really got me", in the front room of his family's house, and the accidental discovery of the beaty of distortion.  Quality is excellent on this one hour episode, and feature the following tracks:

Lola (intro)

Sunny afternoon

Come dancing

London song

Celluloid heroes

Dead end street

A well respected man

To the bone

You really got me


Waterloo Sunset

Lola (closing)

Kinks Piece of History
What a gem! If your expecting a HD experience its not here. This was recorded on TV before HD sets were available but if your Blue Ray Player upscales then your in for a treat. Soundwise its great. I've listened to it with my pioneer headphones on and it sounds just fine. Sounds decent on my home theater but again, if your expecting Dolby 5.1 this aint it! This was recorded in the mid 90's. It sounds fine though on decent stereo or home theater equipment. The performance though is 'choice'. Ray at his finest. Working the crowd, appearing to share from the heart. 'Alt' performances of some great Kinks Klassics! Keep in mind its just him and another guitarist onstage, its true 'Storyteller' unplugged stuff. Any Kinks fan will love this, I do.
