Ray Davies’s songs, written for the second-best British band of the decade, the Kinks, were not so fortunate. This is a pity because, with their tight construction and literate lyrics, they are arguably superior. This fun album by the British bass guitarist Ben Crosland corrects that oversight. It would have been easy to take the blues, music hall or Tin Pan Alley roots of these songs and turn them into swing novelties.
