My buddy Leonard recently wrote a typically brilliant introduction to dub that covers the differences between King Tubby and Perry at length. I can't improve on that, so read it. Both of these are phenomenal albums.
The Singles Collection (1964 - 1970). I regard the Kinks as one of my favorite bands and yet I only have eight of their 23 studio albums. This collection helps make things a little better by including a number of early singles I didn't otherwise have. And while this compilation covers only their Pye Records period, the quick growth of Ray Davies's songwriting is nothing short of astonishing. I mean, in 1964 alone there's only six months between their slopshod cover of "Long Tall Sally" and "You Really Got Me." Just over a year later, there's "A Well Respected Man," Davies's first foray into social satire. A few months later is "Dedicated Follower of Fashion." And just over three years into their career, they dropped "Waterloo Sunset." MAN.
Kinda Kinks (1965). The second Kinks full-length album, featuring the killer "Tired Of Waiting For You."
"Father Christmas" and "Young Conservatives." I wrote about "Father Christmas" back in December. "Young Conservatives" is from the 1983 album State of Confusion, and it sounds quite a bit like Queen (with Ray Davies instead of Freddie Mercury, natch).
