FEELING KINKY?

Question: Which album by rock band, The Kinks, was inspired by P&G Classic Soap, The Edge of Night?

Answer: In the 1970s, The Kinks' frontman, Ray Davies, had an actress friend on The Edge of Night. Her story of how the actors would sometimes sing their lines during rehearsal to entertain themselves, prompted Davies to release a concept album titled The Kinks Present a Soap Opera.
