‘The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society’ was both ahead of and behind the times when the British rockers released the album in November 1968. A critical success, but commercial disappointment at the time, the ‘Village Green’ LP eventually became the Kinks’ bestselling studio album, prompting frontman Ray Davies to once refer to it as “the most successful flop of all time.”
‘With the Beatles’ was a hit before it was even released. By November 1963, Beatlemania was raging across the U.K.. On the heels of the Fab Four’s debut LP, ‘Please Please Me,’ and the smash singles ‘From Me to You’ and ‘She Loves You,’ ‘With the Beatles’ could have featured 33 minutes of Ringo Starr performing Shakespeare and it still would have topped the charts.
In 1983, “the only band that matters” was poised to become the biggest band in the world. Over the course of a few years, the Clash had gone from punk upstarts to a passionately eclectic band capable of rocking stadiums.
'Street-Legal,' Bob Dylan’s 18th album, was created during a period of personal and artistic strife. The year before the record's release, Dylan finalized the divorce of his 11-year marriage to Sara, underwent a custody battle for his kids and continued to edit his ill-fated, four-hour movie ‘Renaldo and Clara,’ which had been shot in 1975.
