Skin and Bone Decades ago when I first got the album, I really liked this song. Since I wasn't really an Americana guy and I actively disliked country, this cut stood out in a good way and by the way, it was just a fun song. But this song hasn't really stuck with me. If I'm honest, it's really not that far this side of a novelty song. Certainly a good break from more serious treatments in a concept album, but really not that great as a stand alone. Through the years, I have come to really appreciate most Kinks songs I initially overlooked. I guess this is the one example of the opposite happening.
