DAVIES,RAY - OUR COUNTRY: AMERICANA ACT 2 Vinyl LP
Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes digital download. 2018 release from the former Kinks singer/songwriter. This release is the follow-up to his 2017 LP Americana. According to Davies, Our Country: Americana Act II "follows my journey across America; through endless tours not just to reclaim the Kinks' career, but to rediscover the country that offered me my earliest inspirations," Our Country: Americana Act II was preceded by it's first single and opening track "Our Country," a rootsy rocker about Davies' conflicted relationship with America. "This is my country/And I can't believe/That one day I'd want to leave these shores forever," Davies sings on the chorus. "The book [Americana] has got some song references in it and the songs are part of the narrative, so the trick was to get the record to stand up as a record as well as being part of a series," Davies says. "I think people that like the first album understand where it's going. [Our Country] is what happens when you get there."
