The Kinks Celebrate 60-Year Anniversary!
It’s been 60 years since the members of the Kinks first got together in North London. And the band’s planning on celebrating with a number of upcoming events and releases. First up is the release of a new anthology collection that will be released in two parts, BMG has announced. The Journey: Part 1, which is due on March 24th, will cover the Kinks’ career from 1964 through 1975 and feature remastered versions of every song, according to the label. It will also include rare photos and track-by-track notes from the band. Beyond that, BMG is promising the release of The Journey: Part 2 and “a host of global events and activities” — although dates have not yet been announced for any of them.
