商品の説明

内容紹介

Ray Davies: Not Like Everybody Else is a critical biography of Ray Davies, with a focus on his music and his times. The book studies Davies’ work from the Kinks’ first singles through his 2006 solo album, from his rock musicals in the early 1970s to his one-man stage show in the 1990s, and from his films to his autobiography. Based on interviews with his closest associates, as well as studies of the recordings themselves, this book creates the most thorough picture of Davies’ work to date. Kitts situates Davies’ work in the context of the British Invasion and the growth of rock in the '60s and '70s, and in the larger context of English cultural history. For fans of rock music and the music of the Kinks, this book is a must have. It will finally place this legendary innovator in the pantheon of the great rock artists of the past half-century.

Thomas M. Kitts, Professor of English and Chair of the Division of English/Speech at St. John’s University, NY, is the co-editor of Living on a Thin Line: Crossing Aesthetic Borders with The Kinks, the author of The Theatrical Life of George Henry Boker, articles on American literature and popular culture, reviews of books, CDs, and performances, and a play Gypsies. He is the book review editor of Popular Music and Society and the editor of The Mid-Atlantic Almanack.

レビュー

"Thomas Kitts has done a great job...[his] book is highly recommended for Kinks and Ray Davies Fans, and everybody else!" --New York Waste

5つ星のうち 4.0 4 stars for just being able to put it in one book! 2008/1/9

When a big DOG gets up and dances: people applaud...not because the dog dances well, but because he can get up and dance at all!

Like the "dancing dog", I'm not applauding the book because it was so well written, (it's better than fair)I applaud it because someone was able to do it at all!

At the moment it's the only book of it's kind. So, until something better comes along shedding light on the way Ray writes songs; and shares the specifics of Ray's private life (warts and all), NOT LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE is the only game in town. I give the author much credit for the extensive research. Writting this book must have been a daunting, frustrating task for many reasons, including the mecurial behavior, egotistical whims and attitudes of Ray. This book does contain lots of good, little known, stories-insights into every Ray Davies project: records, musicals, films, etc.. This, for me, made the best reading: ESPECIALLY insights into Ray's musical composition/lyric writing techniques, satirical or otherwise.

There is an analysis, and quotes from R. Davies, of how the original inspiration for "Village Green" LP came from "Under Milk Wood" (the Dylan Thomas radio play). It even contains a sort of "draft" of the proposed song/scene line-up, and which different character(s) would have sung each song, if "ARTHUR" had been made into the musical cartoon. Bravo! That is the stuff I love to read about. Mr. Kitts did an intelligent job analzing each record, film ("Return To Waterloo) and "rock musical"(e.g Soap Opera)
It wasn't the most exciting read, but the fact that it has finally been done is AWESOME!
Thank you and Congrats Mr. Kitts. You have gone where few people dare to go.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Getting to know Ray Davies 2010/8/12
投稿者 The Maestro - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
This is a great book obviously written with little input from Ray Davies which is a pity. However, the depth of detail is great and you learn about the artist at work and realise that yes, he is not like everybody else and why would you want to be? I found this difficult to put down and was disappointed that it ended when it did. You get to understand more about what makes Ray Davies tick. Helpful too is the index and bibliography. Interesting about his clash with John Lennon and the rivalry that existed between the two.

Read in conjuction with X-Ray (by Ray Davies) this makes for a great understanding of one of the all time greats. This is a well written book but some day someone will get all the main players down to give a fully developed account of The Kinks and Ray Davies. Until that happens this is the best book I've read on Ray Davies.

i bought this book with the intention of reading it but somehow i always fall asleep before i get very far. i think i'm on page 2 or 3. wish it were out on cd so i could listen in the car. i'm not very good at the printed word unless it's a REAL PAGE TURNER and this is NOT one of those. also, i do better with autobiographies than biographies. i really prefer a first person voice of things they actually felt or experienced.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Long-Needed Perspective of a Difficult Genius 2007/12/24
投稿者 Paul Carpenter - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Kitt does a wonderful job of evaluating Davies' fascinating life and brilliant career, which is not an easy task. As Kitt illustrates in the book, Davies has for decades been a notoriously maddening and mercurial figure to the world and to himself, with his ongoing personal quest for self-understanding being the engine fueling his amazing musical legacy. Although his body of work has always stood for itself, Kitt's synthesis of Davies' personal life and a smart analysis of his songs transcends many of the limitations found in previous works, and finally provides a satisfying and comprehensive (to 2007) perspective of this amazing career. Highly recommended for fans of Davies and the Kinks.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Admirable job of expounding on the Kinks/Ray Davies!! 2008/8/17
投稿者 alabhaois - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I absolutely recommend this book to Kinks/Ray Davies fans. Prof. Kitts does a creditable job of putting together a superb book of a difficult subject. This is the most detailed, up-to-date book on the Kinks that I've seen and I felt right at home having Prof. Kitts expound on the many details behind the scenes. There are still gaps to this history, and probably will always be, but that's irrelevant. The bottom line is that it parched my deep curiosity about the brilliant Davies and the Kinks.
