A Little-Known Kinks Classic / 4
Apart from the hit single "Sunny Afternoon," most of the songs on this album are unknown except to diehard Kinks fans. That is unfortunate, because "Face To Face" captures Ray Davies at his satirical best. Those who enjoyed "Well Respected Man," "Dedicated Follower of Fashion, and "Young Conservatives" will find much to enjoy on this humorous but hard-hitting CD.

"Party Line" takes a satirical look at the now mostly-obsolete problems of strangers sharing common telephone lines (many people under 40 probably never heard of a party line). "Rosie Won't You Please Come Home" is a parent's lament for an estranged daughter, and "Session Man" pokes fun at the 1960's phenomenon of staid, mediocre jazz musicians making an extra buck as rock 'n' roll session men ("you're a session man, a chord pro-gress-i-an").

Some will remember "Dandy" as a single by Herman's Hermit's; this is the same song, authored by Davies, but the Kinks give it their own unique treatment. Other favorites of mine include "House In the Country" ("and he's oh so smug, oh yeah, and he's as wicked as he can be"), and "Most Exclusive Residence for Sale."

This release features a few cuts not on the original album, most notably the pre-punk anthem, "I'm Not Like Everybody Else." All in all, this is a good album for those who enjoy Ray Davies' brand of class-warfare. I dock it one star because of the production quality; in my opinion, the mixing isn't as good as on most of the early Kinks material, and the sound has a slightly primitive quality. Other than that, I recommend it highly.

Keeping it all in the family (Boston Globe)
Given their family's musical history and sheer size, it's not a shock that the three O'Malley brothers who make up the Safes -- Frankie , 33; Patrick , 30; and Michael , 29 -- formed a rock band. What is surprising is that they didn't start a marching band.
