The Kinks - Schoolboys In Disgrace mp3 flac download
Schoolboys in Disgrace or The Kinks Present Schoolboys in Disgrace is a 1975 concept album by the Kinks. It was considered to be the last album by critics in what they dubbed the group's "theatrical" period, and their final release for RCA Records. According to the back cover liner notes, the story which the album presents is as follows: 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
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 never more so than on Schoolboys in Disgrace, probably their best LP since Everybody’s in Showbiz and a welcome relief from the ambitious but tired Preservation Act opus. Since Davies seems curiously committed to the concept album (the disappointing Soap Opera was the last), the least one can ask is that he pull it off without having to shore up his exposition by using aesthetically weak material. Because it does not really try very hard to hit a seriocomic home run, Schoolboys in Disgrace isn’t one of the Kinks’ great albums.

The Kinks took the album on the road as a theatrical presentation - even sporting schoolboy outfits - but by the time the tour wrapped up in 1976, Davies and the band were ready to move on. Schoolboys in Disgrace was the last record they made for RCA Records, and the last in their long run of themed albums. In 1977, they got even more on track with a new label and a new album (Sleepwalker) that would be the start of a rise in fame and fortune for the band.

The Kinks Present Schoolboys In Disgrace
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 punishent the boy turned into a hard and bitter character. Perhaps it was not the punishment that changed him but the fact that he realised 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.
Amongst those in disgrace are:
Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Mick Avory, John Dalton, John Gosling (The Kinks), and others too naughty to mention including J. Beacham (trombone) and A. Holmes and N. Newell (saxophones)
Recorded at Konk Studios, London, during school holidays
