iTunes Editors’ Notes

Ray Davies has always been a fantastic songwriter and the Kinks were a band that could do many different things. Quite a few of the Kinks’ best tunes were sadly overlooked upon first release, but now, in retrospect, are receiving their just due. This collection of songs, where Davies’ “friends” join him, includes both his most famous hits (“You Really Got Me” with Metallica, “Lola” with British pop singer Paloma Faith) alongside other lesser-known tunes such as “Better Things” with Bruce Springsteen, which appeared on the Kinks’ 1981 album Give the People What They Want. Alex Chilton, just before he died, pulls off an energized rendition of “This Is Where I Belong” with Davies’ touring band, The 88, supplying the firepower. Jackson Browne joins Davies for one of Ray’s most formidable tunes, “Waterloo Sunset,” and Spoon capture a brilliant mood for “See My Friends.” Davies’ originals remain the definitive versions, but many of the tributes here are very good, indeed.

Duet Rock Heaven

Ray Davies has outdone himself with a little help from friends. There are duet albums and there is 'See My Friends'. Years in the making and well worth the wait - this music is a revelation to all who know Ray's work as head honcho of the Kinks. This man should be the icon that other seem to have achieved. I have loved listening to his later solo efforts and Ray Davies has his hand on the lever of life. When you buy thus album the digital booklet will give you clues to the process that put this album together. Check out the different styles on the arrangements. See Ray surrender his songs to some of the best performers/musicians of our time. The outcome is simply a revelation that all music lovers should savor.

Ray Davies was the lead singer, chief songwriter, and rhythm guitarist in the Kinks, one of the most long-lived of the British Invasion rock groups of the 1960s. In effect, the Kinks had always been merely a backup group for Davies, who wrote and sang nearly all their songs with only the occasional contribution from his brother, Dave, who played lead guitar in the group. At various times, Ray Davies made noises about dissolving the group and going solo, but for years the closest he came to it was...
