Album Review

For his first solo disc, Dave Davies came out swinging with the great AFL1-3063, titled after the record's catalog number and also as a slap at the bar-coding that had begun to be put on nearly everything. This album rocks; from the opening "Where Did You Come From" right on through to "Run," there is a sense that Davies was out to prove that his brother, Ray, wasn't the only force in the Kinks. Chock-full of the best bits of the Kinks' guitar-rockers, AFL1-3603 also holds lots of power pop treasures, such as the very lovely "Imaginations Real" and the nice change of pace "Visionary Dreamer." Doing all the guitars, vocals, keyboards, and most of the bass and drums, as well as producing and writing all the tunes, Dave Davies proves he can out-Kink brother Ray and do it with a refreshing style. AFL1-3603 is a winner. [The Japanese release appends one bonus track: "Wild Man."]

I have 2 copies of the album - just dusted it off and was blown away by my having forgot how great the album is - how great dave davies is - wish he and ray would team up and redo some of this album - it would be interesting to hear Ray sing his brother’s songs - I realized he was a genius ack in 80-81 when I bought this record - very happy to have re-discovered it!!!!


Born: February 3, 1947 in Muswell Hill, London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Although he took a largely subordinate role to his brother Ray in the Kinks, Dave's fierce guitar work and hoarse but effective background (and occasional lead) vocals were key elements of the band's appeal. Dave also occasionally wrote songs for the Kinks that showed him to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, if not up to the same level as Ray. In the late '60s, Dave made some solo singles that met with critical success in Britain, although they were unknown in the U.S. "Death of a Clown"...
