The Kinks Present Schoolboys In Disgrace.

The following is printed on the cover backside:
Once upon a time there was a naughty little schoolboy. He and his gang were always playing tricks on the teachers and bullying other children in the school. One day he got himself into very serious trouble with a naughty schoolgirl and he was sent to the Headmaster who decided to disgrace the naughty boy and his gang in front of the whole school.

After this punishment the boy turned into a hard and bitter character. Perhaps it was not the punishment that changed him but the fact that he realized people in authority would always be there to kick him down and the Establishment would always put him in his place. He knew that he could not change the past but he vowed that in the future he would always get what he wanted. The naughty little boy grew up... into Mr. Flash.

That's the kind of Rock 'N' Roll album that keeps any Music Lovers to pursue the Quest for Great ROCK Music.
The Kinks get back to basic with Dave Davies on the forefront. Another great portrait of the English society by Ray and superb lyrics writing which help again to consider him as a real poet. Guitar oriented with enough gems from Ray Davies to rate it 5/5 even 30 years later. A Must. JX
