Ray Davies has a way of turning simple storylines and concepts into these intricate and moving little ballads that feel simeltaneously high and low concept. However, his upcoming project, The Kinks Choral Colelction, is definitely high concept. On the album, Davies collaborates with a 65-person chorus known as the Crouch End Festival Chorus to reenvision several of The Kinks’ classics in a production much more grandiose than a simple remastering could ever provide. The project, produced by Davies’ himself, also includes a six-song suite from the classic The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society, and comes out November 10 on Decca.
