THE KINKS 1 DVD RETURN TO WATERLOO 1985 Ray Davies of the Kinks -- one of rock's best storytellers -- makes his filmmaking debut with Return to Waterloo, a unique synthesis of music, video and cinema. Davies's haunting songs, unavailable on any Kinks album, take a middle-aged commuter (Ken Colley) on a suspenseful journey through his imagination as he confronts reality and fantasy, love and violence. Features eight Kinks music videos.

THE KINKS 1 DVD ONE FOR THE ROAD 1980 62 minutes, crystal clear... one of the all time greatest rock and roll dvds ever made, It's a no frills, genuine rock and roll concert filmed in a fairly intimate, mid-size venue. You can almost smell the sweat and smoke. "All Day And All Of The Night" gets things off to a rocking start and whips the crowd into a frenzy. "Lola" is a definite crowd pleaser; who doesn't like a love song about a transvestite? Of course, several selections were taken from their most recent album at the time, "Low Budget." On one hand, that's one of their best albums, which makes for a very enjoyable concert. On the other hand, since there's only a dozen songs, many older classics from their vast repertoire were not included. Fortunately, a moving version of "Celluloid Heroes" and a blistering "You Really Got Me" are featured.

RAY DAVIES SOLO DVD's
RAY DAVIES 1 DVD IMAGINARY MAN BBC DOCUMENTARY broadcast 12/21/10 75 mins... As the creative powerhouse behind the hugely influential band The Kinks, Ray Davies was responsible for writing some of the best loved songs of the '60's, including the pop classics "You Really Got Me", "Tired Of Waiting For You", "Dedicated Follower Of Fashion", "Sunny Afternoon" and "Waterloo Sunset". Alan Yentob meets Davies, a unique talent who describes with rare candor his troubled relationship with fame and the vicissitudes of his career. They also discuss a new album, Klassic Kinks Kollaborations, which is near completion and features musical luminaries such as Bruce Springsteen, Mumford & Sons and Metallica. Produced and directed by Julian Temple.

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS 1 DVD RAY DAVIES LIVE 2006 55 minutes from pbs digital, crystal clear... solo songs and of course classic Kinks hits
RAY DAVIES 1 DVD LIVE IN NYC 1996... this is very cool, fan shot from the first row in a very small club in nyc (maybe bb kings or tramps)... clear picture, picture angle is slightly up because the person filming is in the front row. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
STORYTELLERS 1 DVD RAY DAVIES 1996 45 minutes, great stuff... picture has red spotlight blur in spots: 7.5+ / 10, very watchable.
RAY DAVIES 1 DVD RETURN TO WATERLOO 1984 60 minutes, crystal clear... This short is essentially a concept album put to film: lyrics take the place of dialogue, and rhythm and melody set the dynamics. The tunes (unavailable on any Kinks record) are easily the strongest output of the band's '80s material. Davies ambitiously chooses a nonlinear structure, shows no fear in painting our protagonist as a possible rapist and/or pedophile, and creates a haunting mini-masterpiece. It feels like Dennis Potter blended with The Wall minus the latter's excruciating pretentiousness and bombast.
