This CD is a true gem. There are many clever versions of their big hits-Tired of Waiting, All Day and All of Night, Victoria, Where Have All The Good Times Gone, You Really Got Me, and my personal favorite Celluloid Heroes.
Besides the big hits there are numerous super album tracks. Demolition is a spunky tune with super background vocals and pulsating keyboard embelleshments. Like the subject matter of the Real Estate scene which still sounds fresh today. Both versions of Skin and Bones and Money Talks stand strong. The Kinks really sound super doing jazz inflected tunes such as When I Turn Off The Living Room Light, Holiday, and the charming Mirror Of Love. The Dave Davies tunes are quite good as well.
This is a great CD compilation which is so rich in style that will entertain you until the end of the day.
