Editorial Reviews

This DVD contains some of the Kinks finest moments and is full of rarely seen performances from the '60s right through to the '90s and also contains comments from the various members of the band including Ray Davies, Dave Davies and Mick Avory. Some of the performances featured here include 'You Really Got Me', ''Til The End Of The Day', 'Waterloo Sunset', 'Days', 'Celluloid Heroes' and many more including the Dave Davies hit single 'Death Of A Clown'. Footage comes from live concerts and television performances in America, the UK, Germany and Japan and will merely reinforce what many people already know: The Kinks were one of the most important and most loved bands of the last 40 plus years. A unique insight into the Kinks on record, on film and in concert, this DVD draws on archive concert film of The Kinks in performance and documentary footage from television archives from around the world.

2.0 out of 5 stars im so disappointed May 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
when i saw this months ago i couldnt wait. i thought, finally on dvd, the kinks story will be told by the band. it is sort of. it would have been better if sound quality was better. come to think of it, the picture quality was very poor as well. most of the music videos were from the One for the Road dvd which you can get here in 5.1. the price was too high as well. it should be a bargain bin dvd. so dont waste your money. im hoping a better quality dvd will be released someday.

1.0 out of 5 stars You Really Got Screwed May 31, 2010
"You Really Got Screwed" is what your inner voice will tell you about 30 seconds into this dreadful mess. OK, I lied. It doesn't even take 30 seconds. It starts with a quote from "Celluloid Heroes" that reads, "Everybody is a dreamer and everybody is a star" so you know immediately that the producers were not aware that an apostrophe can be used to indicated the omission of one or more letters. The horrendous audio begins with loud screams and applause just dumped onto the track...no fade up...no music. That's just one example. The entire project looks like it was edited with a reciprocating saw and you can tell the editor has a great grasp of the subject matter when "Til the End of the Day" is credited to the album "Kintroversy" (sic) And this is the first five minutes. I couldn't watch much more.

The narration is intrusive. The content and delivery are equally insulting. I want my money back...now!

This thing is so awful it makes those cheesy E! Hollywood stories look like Edward R Murrow's "Harvest of Shame." Come to think of it, Harvest of Shame would be a great title if one were to produce a documentary about the parents of the producers of this train wreck. If I could ask one question of those responsible for "You Really Got Me" it would be: What did the Kinks ever do to you?

Now, if you're a Kinks fan with some inexplicable need to feel simultaneously sad and angry for 87 minutes, this doc should fill the bill nicely. It's just beyond comprehension that a band as vital as the Beatles or the Stones should suffer this treatment. "You Really Got Me" is so hapless, it makes you want to ignore the Kinks. And they've been ignored long enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars pass on this - too much overtalk by the narrator May 26, 2010
Will the people who make these things ever learn how to do it properly? Although there are few complete performances here, the DVD is marred by the frequent and all too predictible overtalk by the punter who narrates the DVD, riuning the said performances. In addition to the annoyance of such narration, the people who do it usually don't know as much about the band in question as those viewing the DVD. Bottom line. Pass on this. If you want high quality Kinks performances, I'm certain you will be able to find plenty of "alternative" DVDs out there.Don't buy this garbage or anything like it. Send a message to video producers: "IT IS NOT ABOUT THEM OR THE NARRATOR, IT IS ABOUT THE MUSIC, STUPID!!"

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time May 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
I hate to give less than 4 stars to anything Kinks related, but this DVD does not even begin to do the Kinks story justice. I am a die-hard Kinks fan and I couldn't even make it half way through. . . the video quality and sound quality are dreadful, and to be honest, it just seems like they pieced together various clips together with no rhyme or reason to it. If you want to watch a high quality documentary on the history of the Kinks I recommend going to iTunes and downloading The Biography Channel's fantastic Kinks documentary for $1.99!! It is cheaper and 100000000x better than this waste of money and time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother!! May 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
I too also waited for this release...and was very very disappointed! Everything here has been released before as previous reviewers have stated. A lot of footage comes from "One for Road'. The audio is uneven at best and the historical info/footage jumps around and lot of stuff is used several times...I think you get the hint to stay away from this! As a life long Kink's fan I think its really about time that Ray Davies sits down and takes the time to put together a proper anthology disc!! One that is done with major input from all of the band. Thank God all of these guys are still around so that should not be a problem. The Stones put together the brilliant 25X5 twenty years ago (still not available on disc..they should update it when that is ever done). The Who have two incredible discs "The Kids Are Alright (which they re-did several years ago with lots of bonus stuff)& last years "The Amazing Journey". The Beach Boys have "Endless Summer" and of course the excellent Beatles Anthology (you can throw in Lennon's Imagine, McCartneys "WingSpan" and Harrison's "Dark Horse Years" to cover life after the Beatles. So you get the picture! C'mon Ray get it done!!
