This will always be among my favorite Kinks albums. There are simply so many great songs, and a lot of great guitar from Dave. Lots of variation style; great melodies, interesting story.
I saw the Kinks perform "Preservation Act" on Royalty Theatre in December 1974. I was "sold" right from the opening song "Preservation" which I did not know at the time, as it had only been released on an obscure single. This song can now be found on the CD release of "Preservation Act 1" which is also highly recommendable. My first Kinks album after "Golden Hour of the Kinks".
