How Music Changed

    Like an band suddenly thrust into the limelight, the Kinks found themselves overwhelmed by the sudden rush of attention. Each ember dealt with it in distinctly different ways.

    The brothers, Ray and Dave Davies had particularly opposed perspectives. Dave acted as though he needed to ‘get in’ as much of the rock and roll style as he possibly could, probably presuming that it would not last, while Ray remained aloof and distrustful of the whirlwind that surrounded him.

    The band was rushed through an international tour, and then thrust into the studio to bash out a second album. Ray in particular was less than happy with the final product, believing it deserved more attention than the label and his managers allowed. A perspective was starting to form in Ray’s mind that would eventually color not only his attitude but also his songwriting.
