Note: Ray Davies said at the time:   “We’d been rehearsing
‘Where Have All the Good Times Gone’ and our tour manager
at the time, who was a lot older than us, said, ‘That’s a song a
40-year-old would write. I don’t know where you get that from.
‘But I was taking inspiration from older people around me. I’d
been watching them in the pubs, talking about taxes and job
opportunities.”

Sir Raymond Douglas Davies, the former frontman of THE KINKS, one of the most
iconic bands ever, was born on 21st June 1944. Happy 75 to a brilliant singer/songwriter,
a compelling storyteller and an engrossing observer. A genuine British pop star who wrote countless gems and is still active as a bona fide solo performer! To celebrate this truly extraordinary phenomenon’s 75th birthday Turn Up The Volume selected five big ones
(not the massive obvious ones like You Really Got Me/Lola/Sunny Afternoon and Victoria
as you would expect, but five ace pearls nonetheless). Here we go…

– WHERE HAVE ALL THE GOOD TIMES GONE –

– DANDY –

– A WELL RESPECTED MAN –

– APEMAN –

– BRINGING UP BABY –
(From 2018 solo LP Our Country: Americana Act 2 )
