Cleverly, the music is a blend of American and British roots music, veering from rowdy blues to boozy vaudeville.
Muswell Hillbillies was about real people, real characters in the Davies family, Dave remembered to Express in 2014. Acoustic instruments, slide guitar, country beats and outdated equipment became the hallmarks of the Kinks’ new album
Muswell Hillbillies came out in 1971, and it was the Kinks' first release on RCA. This explains why you haven't been able to find the little bastard for years, but the good kids at Velvel know what's up; They've reissued this 1971 album (and are filling in the gaps for everything up until 1984). Muswell Hillbillies may very well be the best Kinks album you never heard, a scathing but witty take on urban renewal. No, it's not quite a concept album, more like an idea album- a buncha songs that are a bit downbeat in theme but lively in execution
Lyrics to "Muswell Hillbilly" song by The Kinks: Well I said goodbye to Rosie Rooke this morning I'm gonna miss her bloodshot alcoholic eyes She wore. They'll move me up to Muswell Hill tomorrow Photographs and souvenirs are all I've got They're gonna try and make me change my way of living But they'll never make me something that I'm not. Cos I'm a Muswell Hillbilly boy But my heart lies in old West Virginia Never seen New Orleans, Oklahoma, Tennessee Still I dream of the Black Hills that I ain't never seen
And reading between the lines of Muswell Hillbillies, they didn’t even want to live there in the first place. Despite its affectionate title, Muswell Hillbillies is anything but a tender tribute to the north London suburb that Ray and Dave Davies knew as home.
Muswell Hillbillies is a very bittersweet album for me. The bitterness arises from the fact that it’s the end of an era. It all started in around ’67 with the release of Something Else by the Kinks (or with ‘66’s Face to Face if you’re a huge Kinks fans), and for about a half decade, Ray Davies could do no wrong.
