Ray Davies: Doggie Tricks And Bizness Licks

Andrew Tyler, New Musical Express, 13 October 1973

THIS IS THE TRUE STORY of a street dog and his best friend – an incorrigible pair who get to see each other only on Sundays when they nap together, sing in harmony and share a breakfast of raw eggs and tea. It's a strange, irregular tale and not at all easy to grasp. I'm not sure I really understand it myself.
