Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society - 50th Anniversary Special Edition

    Kinks Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society  2CD      2CD Special Edition! The Kinks will release a 50th Anniversary Edition of one of the greatest British rock albums of all time: 'The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society!' This essential album by one of the world's best ever bands is defined by the extraordinary catalogue of Ray Davies' songs, driven by brother Dave Davies' power pop guitar and became the foundation of generations of British guitar pop. 'The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society' cemented Ray Davies reputation as one of Britain's greatest ever songwriters of his and any generation. "I think The Village Green Preservation Society is about the ending of a time personally for me in my life," says Ray. "In my imaginary village. It's the end of our innocence, our youth. Some people are quite old but in the Village Green, you're never allowed to grow up. I feel the project itself as part of a life cycle." Somewhat overlooked upon its release in November 1968, 'The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society' is now regarded as one of the best British albums ever recorded. Created in difficult circumstances by a band on the verge of disintegration and who refused to follow fashion, it is an album of timeless, perfectly crafted songs about growing up and growing old, and the decline of national culture and traditional ways. Enduring and unsurpassed, with its wit, sadness, quiet anger, regret and charm, it is generally considered the high point of The Kinks' outstanding career and Ray Davies' masterpiece. Included in this anniversary edition are many previously unreleased tracks and versions, including the previously unreleased track 'Time Song'. Despite never been included on a release, 'Time Song' was performed by The Kinks at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in January 1973, celebrating Britain's entry into the Common Market. 'When we played a concert at Drury Lane in '73 to "celebrate" us about to join what was called The Common Market, I decided to use the song as a warning that time was running out for the old British Empire.' Says Ray. 'This song was recorded a few weeks later but never made the final cut on the Preservation Act I album. Oddly enough, the song seems quite poignant and appropriate to release at this time in British history, and like Europe itself the track is a rough mix which still has to be finessed.' Ray mixed the track earlier this year and it is included on both the SuperDeluxe Box Set and Deluxe 2CD Edition.
