The Ten Best Albums of 1966

Number 7

Face to Face – The Kinks

Released on October 28, 1966

Side One:

1. Party Line
2. Rosie Won’t You Please Come Home
3. Dandy
4. Too Much on My Mind
5. Session Man
6. Rainy Day in June
7. A House in the Country

1. Holiday in Waikiki
2. Most Exclusive Residence for Sale
3. Fancy
4. Little Miss Queen of Darkness
5. You’re Lookin’ Fine
6. Sunny Afternoon
7. I’ll Remember

Ray Davies wrote all the songs on this album and it marks the beginnings of an incredibly fertile creative period for him. He told vivid stories of British life and the Kinks embodied the spirit of Britain more deeply than any of the other British invasion bands. My personal favorites from the album would be A House In The Country, Party Line, Holiday In Waikiki, and Sunny Afternoon.

Comments and opinions are encouraged and appreciated.
