The Kinks were active for over three decades between 1964 and 1996, releasing 28 regular albums in the UK (24 studio, four live), and 30 in the USA (24 studio, four live, two compilation), where the early albums were slightly different from the British albums partly due to the method that publishing royalties were calculated in the two countries, partly due to difference in popularity of the extended play format (the UK market liked it, the US market didn't, so US albums had the EP releases bundled.
The Kinks are an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s. The band emerged during the height of British rhythm and blues and Merseybeat, and were briefly part of the British Invasion of the United States until their touring ban in 1965 (as a result of constant fighting between the brothers)
The Kinks’ story is a messy one, because they’ve been so many different bands: British Invasion mods, art-school jesters, Seventies stadium hounds. But over the years, Ray Davies built his legend as one of rock’s great eccentric wits, the poet laureate of England’s dead-end streets, rooting for the losers and outsiders, always feuding with his kid brother Dave on guitar. Not exactly a cozy family relationship: the Kinks had a infamous history of onstage fisticuffs. The band had no idea this album got released until they noticed it was in the Billboard charts and sued to get it pulled. Typical Kinks-even when they fluked into a hit, it meant something was wrong.

The Kinks scored their best-charting . album with 'Low Budget,' released on July 10, 1979. In 1965, the American Federation of Musicians issued a ban on the Kinks from touring America for four years time. So while their English cohorts like the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds and Cream performed, cavorted and raked in the cash across the pond, the Kinks were left on the outside looking in. Nevertheless, they decided to press on and ultimately became regarded one of the quintessential English bands of the '60s. As the ‘70s dawned, the group kicked things into overdrive.
