The Kinks: Preservation Act 1

Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 14 February 1974

THE KINKS traditionally stand as preservers of the eternal verities of their Village Green, fighting off the depredations of predatory capitalists in their dapper demolition derby hats. With Preservation Act I (to be followed by Act 2), Davies has developed his themes within a stage presentation that American audiences may be seeing during the group's 1974 tour.
