In 1999, "You Really Got Me" was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame

Part of a series of releases and reissues celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Kinks!

One of the most important and influential artists in rock history, The Kinks have been credited by many as the crucial '60s genesis for everything from heavy metal to garage punk to Britpop. The centerpiece of the 1964 debut album from lead singer/rhythm guitarist Ray Davies, lead guitarist and brother Dave Davies, bassist Pete Quaife and drummer Mick Avory is "You Really Got Me," with its distinctive riff to end all riffs. The follow up single "All Day And All Of The Night" also charted No. 7 in the U.S.

"The first album was done as quick as possible." Mick remembers. "Ray hadn't written many songs, so most of it was just what we did on stage." Kinks was a raw splatter of an album, with a few selections that show Ray Davies discovering himself as a songwriter along with rapid fire recordings of the R&B covers that had first got them noticed. "I'm A Lover Not A Fighter," "Beautiful Delilah," "Long Tall Shorty" and "Cadillac" had all been in their live set for a while, but most impressive was Ray's angle on "Got Love If You Want It."

Kinks was a huge commercial success, reaching No. 3 on the U.K. album charts, and it stands as an excellent polaroid of the early, pre-fame Kinks, a London R&B group scrabbling for their distinctive sound.
