We’re counting down the days until Ray Davies speaks at the National Concert Hall and for the past few Saturday’s we’ve been featuring a song from Ray’s band, The Kinks, in anticipation of the event. The first song we featured, “Waterloo Sunset”, is one of my favourite songs by the band and the song today, “The Village Green Preservation Society”, is my other favourite. Hope that you will enjoy it too. Follow this link for more information about Ray Davies’ upcoming appearance at the National Concert Hall. As an added bonus today we are also including a documentary about Ray Davies called Imaginary Man so that you can learn a little more about the rock legend before seeing him speaking about his life, work and new book, Americana: the Kinks, the Road and the Perfect Riff, live on May 19th.
EXTRA BONUS: Kate Rusby’s well executed cover of “The Village Green Preservation Society”
