Product Description:

Following the 1975 rock opera SOAP OPERA, Kinks leader Ray Davies continued to explore larger-than-rock themes. With SCHOOLBOYS IN DISGRACE, he examines the cruelty and superficiality of the British school system--a system Davies clearly suffered through.
From the piano-driven opening track "Schooldays" to the cheeky, Jan and Dean rave-up of "Jack the Idiot Dunce" to the gospel-influenced "The Last Assembly," SCHOOLBOYS IN DISGRACE captures The Kinks at the height of their rock opera powers. However, in 1976 The Kinks were changing direction. On the closing song "No More Looking Back," which many fans consider one of Davies' best vocal performances, the band is already showing signs of going in a new musical direction.
