Ray Davies

See My Friends (Decca)

Square-peg/round-hole pairings of the Kinkster and guests seldom jell as duets (Bruce Springsteen), but covers from Lucinda Williams ("Long Way From Home") and Jackson Browne ("Waterloo Sunset") make for choice B-sides. Genuine thrills include Big Star Alex Chilton ("'Til the End of the Day") and Mumford & Sons' rolling banjo under Davies on "Days/This Time Tomorrow." Spoon-ing: "See My Friends."
