The next reissue for The Kinks is ‘Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneyground’ to mark the 50th anniversary of the release.

‘Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneyground’ was originally released on 27 November 1970. The new expanded release is coming on December 18.

‘Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneyground’ featured two of The Kinks greatest hits ‘Lola’ and ‘Apeman’.

‘Lola Verses Powerman’ was the eighth studio album for The Kinks. The context of the album was to send-up the music industry.

Despite the two big hits the album failed to chart in the UK but reached no 24 in Australia and no 35 in the USA.
