Geez, a lot of great pop musicians were born in June...today's BSBdG is for Raymond Douglas Davies of the Kinks. He turns 59 today.
Although I can't say that I've liked a single Kinks album after 1975, the ones I do like (basically, any I've heard pre-'76...well, I wasn't too crazy about Preservation Act II) keep Ray and his band in my list of favorites. Their 1973 contractual obligation LP The Great Lost Kinks Album is definitely one of top 10 favorite albums. Maybe I should list my top ten here sometime for posterity.
