about

A front to back cover album of The Kink's "The Village Green Preservation Society" with some minor track list changes.

The concept here was to try to do the album with only three vocal parts, one guitar, one bass and one drum part, in comparison to the ample overdubs and special effects on the original album. Stripped down, basically.

"Easy Come, Easy Go" and "Mick Avory's Underpants" were Kinks instrumental tracks from the Village Green era that are used to introduce each "side" of the record. "Misty Water" and "Lavender Hill," both from the Village Green era, replace "Monica" and "All of My Friends Were There." Some of the track order has been altered as well, with "Village Green" being moved from the end of side 1 to the end of side 2. I feel it's a much better closer than "People Take Pictures of Each Other." Finally, "Rules of Love," the last song, was just a song I wanted to include on this. Not sure why. It is not a Kinks song, but is rather by The Riptides, aka The Numbers from Australia, from their first 7".
