    I just watch a documentary called Echoes of a World about The Kinks album. It was never my favorite Kinks album, that was Soap Opera. It was a very good documentary with a lot of performances I haven't seen before. I seen them once, the Low Budget tour, great show, different era. Ray Davies is a one of the great originals among songwriters. There is no mistaking a Ray Davies song.

    My favorite Kinks album is Muswell Hillbillies, but VGPS is great too. Never heard Soap Opera. I’m normally against 60s bands playing 70s music.

    I didn't know about that documentary but will definitely check it out as I'm a big fan of Village Green. Since we're talking favorite Kinks albums I've always really loved Arthur which serves as a perfect companion piece to Village Green.

    It was made in 2018. If your a big fan, you'll like it a lot. They touch on every song. With interviews with Ray and Dave and more than a couple acoustic parlor performances from them in I believe 94.
