The Kinks To Re-Issue Classic 1964-1970 Run

To celebrate fifty years in music...
'Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One'

While their much speculated upon re-union hasn't quite manifested itself, The Kinks still intend to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

The legendary British group are set to re-issue their classic 1964-1970 studio run, incorporating rare and unreleased material along the way.

The re-issue campaign will be steered by BMG in partnership with Sony Music, launching with 'Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One' on August 18th.

Initially released in 1970, the album will be expanded across two discs with award winning art director Phil Smee preparing a lavish booklet.

Essentially a music industry satire, 'Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One' comes equipped with demos, instrumentals and more. Intriguingly, the second disc is given over to The Kinks' 'Percey' soundtrack.

A film about a man who receives a penis transplant, it's schlock nature sits at odds with the score itself which includes some of the band's most tender songwriting.

'Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One' will be released on August 18th. Tracklisting:
