The KinksThe Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society (Special Deluxe Edition) (Reissue)Sanctuary Midline import
The album that fellow Brit-rock elder Pete Townshend called Ray Davies’Sgt. Pepper’s was slept on due to heavy competition when it came out in1968. But its back-to-the-English-garden pop, full of harpsichords andfaintly ironic la-la-las, is rife with more shiny hooks than a HomeDepot hardware aisle. This import inflates it to three discs, withpreviously unreleased cuts and alternate versions of nearly everytrack. Which is fine, since you’ll want to play most on repeat anyway.
