Re-releasing The Kinks At 50
To mark their 50th anniversary, The Kinks have announced details of an extensive re-release program covering their classic 1964-1970 catalog.
The first album in the series will be 1970’s Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One, which will be reissued on August 18, 2014.
This 2-CD reissue expanded edition comes with Mono and Stereo mixes as well as unreleased material and alternative versions, all re-mastered from original tapes. The booklet contains rare and unreleased images from the era plus new extensive liner notes. Disc 2 features the 1971 soundtrack album Percy which is also packed with fantastic bonus content.
Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Part One will be followed by more titles later in the year. The reissue campaign is being masterminded by BMG, who acquired The Kinks catalog when it bought Sanctuary Records in 2013. BMG has partnered with Sony Music for the release program. MORE HERE & HERE
