David Russell Gordon Davies (born 3 February 1947) is an English guitarist, singer and songwriter. He was the lead guitarist and backing vocalist for the English rock band the Kinks, which also featured his elder brother Ray Davies. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 as a member of the Kinks.
Davies is prolific with his innovative nature on the electric guitar, specifically in being one of the first to utilize electric guitar distortion and exposing the effect to the mainstream. His signature distorted power chord riffs on songs would heavily influence future heavy metal and punk rock acts. In 2003, Davies was ranked 91st in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. (wikipedia)
The brother of Ray Davies is less known but he is nevertheless a great guitarist and a good singer.
This is an excellent (ex) sound quality FM radio broadcast.
It is also an incomplete concert, however this is the entire radio broadcast.
A nice little CDr made from a German local radio broadcast. Around 400 or 500 copies were produced and sold to Kinks fans during a Kinks Meeting in Utrecht for a reduced price.The tracks 1-12 were broadcasted live on German FM Radio. The sound quality is excellent and Dave and his band are in good spirits. (nlkink)
