Synopsis

Amazon.com
If you haven't had a chance to catch Kinks leader Ray Davies' recent autobiographical music-and-spoken-word show, this disc will make a dandy substitute. If you have seen it already, here's your chance to enjoy a judiciously edited version, with the added bonus of not having anyone sitting behind you and singing along into your ear. Vibrant acoustic interpretations of Kinks klassics like "Victoria," "20th Century Man" and "Autumn Almanac" alternate with strong new Davies compositions like "London Song" and "The Ballad of Julie Finkle," as well as a charming interpretation of "That Old Black Magic." Of course, you also get the man himself, musing wittily on life before and after "You Really Got Me." --Dan Epstein

The Whole Story Via A Legendary Frontman
Jay Lefkowitz | LAS VEGAS, NV USA | 03/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THE STORYTELLER is a most endearing Album and a Must for any KINKS fan or newfound Rock and Roll historian in the making. I must recommend Reading X Ray the Book upon which Ray recites in between Musical interludes.
The Green Amplifier will be forever in your Brain!.
I have been lucky enough to have seen THE KINKS at least 15 times in my lifetime and the Shining of Ray's personality as well Tribute to Family and His Awesome Brother Dave.
One note, I myself parallel this whole x ray experience to Pete Townshends "PSYCHODERELICT" project.
A History lesson in Rock and Roll and super entertaining.
The question...is Julie Finkle the Greyhound Girl on PT's "Scoop"?."
