The Kinks: All Day and All of the Night
(Book). This book tells the true story of The Kinks, one of the greatest pop bands of all time, through the facts about their daily professional lives as they wrote songs, appeared on stage, signed deals, performed for TV and radio stations, and made records in the studio. Author Doug Hinman lays out The Kinks' history in fascinating chronological detail, revealing new stories and fresh insights into the band started by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. Included in its 352 fact-packed pages are hundreds of photos, gig locations and on-the-spot reviews, detailed examinations of every known recording session, and thorough information about all the band's major record releases. This book is the result of Hinman's 20 years of deep research. He has been afforded personal recognition by the band members for his grasp of their history and has had their help and assistance in reconstructing this uniquely detailed story. "(Hinman's) research ... takes popular music scholarship to a plateau of virtually unprecedented integrity." Johnny Rogan, author of noted books on The Kinks, The Byrds, Neil Young and others
