Label: Decca/London
Ray Davies, one of rock's finest songwriters, redoes selections from his songbook with a classical choir. While aging rockers will probably recoil at this, the results are quite charming actually, especially when the heavenly voices champion "china cups and virginity" or simply offer a pillowy cushion for Davies to relax on. Things get a bit silly on some of his most famous rockers, but just as often, as with "Shangri-La," the Kinks' celebration/defamation of a fast-fading English way of life shines through. A bonus: Davies' voice hasn't aged a day.
