I knew two Kinks songs I loved, and both were on there (Here is it again) so it seemed to be the clear choice for me as a first album to buy...I was so happy that both songs would be on the same album. When I listened to the album, I loved all the songs, and knew the Kinks were not a band where the "best of" album would be enough...I'd need them all!
The songs I loved already were Father Christmas and Come Dancing. I knew the sound and chorus of Lola and You Really Got Me, but the first time I really heard them was on this compilation, in their high energy "One For The Road" versions!
I later bought To The Bone when it was brand new. I first learned that it existed by seeing the display for it in the music store, and that very day I bought it right from that display. I mention this so I can say how very impressed I was with that album as well, and YRGM and Lola were just as great on To The Bone as they were on One For The Road! The Kinks never lost a step!
