The Kinks reissue first three albums in deluxe format

Kinks, Kinda Kinks and The Kink Kontroversey out March 28th – Universal Music

Legendary British guitar group The Kinks are to reissue their first three albums in a double CD deluxe format on March 28th. Kinks (1964), Kinda Kinks(1965) and The Kink Kontroversey (1965) will each be backed with an exhilarating selection of rarities, outtakes, demos, session tracks and in depth liner notes detailing the album’s creation.

A hefty, 28 track version of their debut album Kinks, comes alongside a disc packed full of bonus material, including alternative takes of ‘Too Much Monkey Business’ and ‘Got Love If You Want It’ as well as BBC interviews with Ray Davies and BBC session tracks. These include the band’s interpretation of Bo Diddley’s ‘Cadillac’, the Number One hit ‘You Really Got Me’ and Number Two single ‘All Day and All of the Night’.

The bonus material included on the Kinda Kinks re-issue is just as fascinating, with demo versions of ‘I Go To Sleep’, ‘When I See That Girl Of Mine’ and ‘A Little Bit of Sunlight’ in addition to alternative takes of ‘See My Friends’ and ‘Come On Now’. BBC sessions of ‘Tired of Waiting For You’, ‘This Strange Effect’ and ‘Hide and Seek’ are also included.

The Kink Kontroversey's deluxe material will feature the mono single versions of ‘Dedicated Follower of Fashion’ and ‘I’m Not Like Everybody Else’ as well as album outtake ‘Mr. Reporter’ and ‘Time Will Tell’ and BBC session versions of ‘Where Have All The Good Times Gone’ and ‘Never Met A Girl Like You Before’.
