Thanks a lot for your informative review and bringing this one to our attention again, Rick.

I remembering seeing The Kinks live in the early 80s. Great show. Enjoying this one a lot! (^o^)/

Hi Lute,

Muswell Hillbillies always has a special place in my musical mind. Ray Davies wrote some great songs about the working class of England and people he cared about deeply. I am sure it did not please the record company, RCA, who would be looking for those hit singles. A very special album.

I mentioned in the review reading about Muswell Hillbillies in Stereo Review magazine. I remember Steve Simels wrote this great review of the album. It was one of my best musical decisions in purchasing this album prior to hearing any of the songs and remains one of my favourites.

This SACD stereo version does have outstanding audio quality. However, knowing your affinity for multichannel, I am sure Muswell Hillbillies would sound wonderful in 5.1, 4.1 or 4.0.
