The official video for "Ray Davies and The Kinks" The song Ray Davies and the Kinks was based on a trip our band was making to the Apollo Bay Folk Festival several years ago. We were listening to a Kinks greatest hits collection on the car stereo and reading the liner notes written by Glenn A.Baker So the song is a mashup of our trip to Apollo Bay combined with admiration for the Kink's songs and some mention of their subject matter plus a few quotes from Glenn's liner notes.
