Ray Davies Meltdown
"I'm doing the Village Green in its entirety," he said. "It's the first time I've played most of the songs since they were recorded. I had to read the liner notes to the original record to remember why I made it."
Davies also discussed some of his early hits, often marked by a sense of weariness in his vocal performance. "I recorded "You Really Got Me" when I was 19 and I was weary. Maybe I watched too much Perry Como. I remember watching when I was a kid. He said, 'The reason I'm so relaxed is I'm so tired all the time.' There were elements of that maybe. A 19-year-old world-weary person." more on this story
