The long-hidden talent of the youngest Kink

Advantages: Very comprehensive collection; several previously unreleased tracks
Disadvantages: Unless you're not a Kinks fan, surely none

Dave Davies The Kinks would certainly never have existed without the brilliance of Ray Davies as front man and main songwriter. But let us not underestimate the other constant element in the group and their three decades together, the presence of ...

The Monkees Listen To The Band

Advantages: A compact, easily accessible collection of great 60's tunes.
