THE MODERN GENIUS OF RAY DAVIES

“I was a very quiet kid but I knew what I wanted to do,”
said Ray Davies, recalling his childhood. “I knew what I was good at. I was good at making up stories, drawing pictures and running. I could invent situations. I lived in an absolute dream world”.Born in Muswell Hill, north London, on June 21, 1944, by the mid-’60s the taciturn Davies emerged from his teenage reveries to become the most astute chronicler of Britain’s move from mono-channel, post-War drudgery into the possivilities suggested by the dawn of the rediffusion Age. This, 15-track MOJO tribute is testament to the evergreen nature of both Ray’s songs and the ongoing infulence and power of The Kinks.
