My first big exposure to The Kinks was the late 70's live album, ONE FOR THE
ROAD. I remember the version of "Celluloid Heroes" on there (including the
long instrumental intro) just blowing me away. I adored the big intro, the
clever lyrics, and Dave's big guitar solo.
Nowadays, I'd probably have to officially consider that a "guilty pleasure",
given the general feel I've had for the "common view" that the late 70's
Kinks were a shadow of the original (haven't seen that on this list, can't
remember where I've picked that up). I find that period hard to dismiss,
mainly because ONE FOR THE ROAD, SLEEPWALKER, MISFITS and LOW BUDGET were my
intro to the band.
Seems to me that in a lot of cases, with bands you come to really treasure,
that the first few things you hear kinda get looked upon with a bias because
it got you into the band. (Does that make sense?)
PS: For TV, it kinda doesn't work for me because MARQUEE MOON was the first
thing I heard, and I think it's their best work, bias aside.
