Big Sky


Yes, another gem from The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society—if I live long enough, I'm sure I'll record them all or at least form a Ray Davies cover band.

"Big Sky" seemed an appropriate song for the current COVID-19 global health crisis. I'd already been fiddling around with the song off-and-on with an idea of doing something that wasn't guitar-driven. Still managed to pack in plenty of guitars. The Kinks never performed this one much (when they did, by most reports, they kinda murdered it) and apparently Ray Davies was never happy with the original recording. I know the feeling.
