The Kinks
Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Part One

'Lola Vs. The Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One' - what a mouthful - was the eighth album by The Kinks. It was originally released in 1970 and is a bit of a cracker, a concept album that takes aim at the music industry. The album features the singles 'Lola' and 'Apeman' along with classic tracks such as 'This Time Tomorrow', 'Strangers' and 'Rats', the latter two being penned by Dave Davies.

The Kinks
The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society

The defining statement for the Davies brothers and their rotating cast of players, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society is a precursor to all varieties of twee pop, folk rock and psychedelia, an instructive textbook in saccharine song-writing and sugar-laced guitar melodies. The Kinks had a unanimously agreed-upon classic, and this is it -- because it's the one that makes us all smile the hardest.

The Kinks
The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society

Now regarded as their finest moment, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society is now seen as the highlight of the band's long career and certainly the high water moment of the pastoral English phase of their development. Now you can get the album in an enormous box set with 2 LPs, 5 CDs, 3 7"s a book and all kinds of memorabilia. For those with smaller pockets the 2 x CD looks quite tasty with 49 tracks altogether or you can get the standard original LP as it was meant to be heard.

The Kinks
Arthur Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire

The schoolmasters of the British Invasion continue to get in our faces long after the invading is all said and done, offering a reissue of Arthur (Or The Decline And Fall of the British Empire), their brainiest and most orchestral moment in the sun. Fashioned after soft folk rock arrangements and glorious riffing, it's one of three high watermark moments for the Kinks, who couldn't shake the allure of the concept album if they tried.
