The Kinks are The Village Green Preservation Society by The Kinks

Hello Friends, today we're taking a lazy trip down to the village green, with The Kinks' utterly fantastic 1968 LP, "The Kinks are The Village Green Preservation Society". Released in both mono and stereo mixes at the time, this 15 track collection throws a gratuitous quantity of top quality mix differences at us, with a keen focus on the inclusion/absence of that legendary overdub - the little ol' Tambourine! To top it off, two sneaky alternate mixes leaked out on an alternate 12 Track version of the album in Europe, and of course we couldn't ignore these. So spend your afternoon Sitting By The Riverside with Johnny Thunder & Monica, and let's get in to this utterly scintillating classic.

Happy Listening,
