Reviews and Tweets


from Pittsburgh, PA said on Goodreads:

Well put together history of the record! Great stuff here!



from Longmont, CO said on Goodreads:

A great take on the makings of one of the best albums of the 60's.



from Philadelphia, PA said on Goodreads:

A great behind-the-scenes of a great band's great flop of an album.



from Claremont, CA said on Goodreads:

An illuminating look at what is, for many of us, the most illuminating Kinks album. For fans only, of course. I'm one.



from Cambridge, MA said on Goodreads:

For huge Kinks fans only.



from Los Angeles, CA said on Goodreads:

And in contrast to the 33 1/3 book on Sign O' The Times, we have an account of a brilliant album that reduces it to a strictly clinical affair. Learning about the Kinks from this book is like learning about sex from a Physicist.



from Austin, TX said on Goodreads:

How can I dislike a book about the Kinks. This series continues to amaze me with clever insight and delightful stories.

Summary

Ignored by virtually everyone upon its release in November 1968, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society is now seen as one of the best British albums ever recorded. Here, Andy Miller traces the perilous circumstances surrounding its creation, and celebrates the timeless, perfectly crafted songs pieced together by a band who were on the verge of disintegration and who refused to follow fashion.

Andy Miller is a writer living in London. His first book, Tilting at Windmills, was published in the UK by Viking in 2002.

33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have chosen.
