The Kinks are continuing their 60th anniversary with the tracklisting of ‘The Journey Part 2’ unveiled.

Sir Ray Davies, lead singer and principal songwriter of The Kinks, has remixed six tracks for the release. He says, “I thought I knew everything about my songs until I was given the opportunity to put this record together. The new sequencing has enabled us to show the ‘big picture’ and give a more insightful back story about how our music evolved. I learned a lot about myself in putting this together.”

The album also features unreleased live performances from the New Victoria Theatre, London in 1975.

Dave Davies says this is “Another chance to listen to some of my favourite Kinks releases over the years. A perfect example of our diverse and creative musical legacy.”

All songs on The Journey Part Two were hand-picked by Ray Davies, Dave Davies and Mick Avory. Mick says it is a “A strong selection of Kinks songs across the years, that should give the listener some nice surprises.”

The tracks are taken from the classic original Kinks albums including: Face To Face, The Kink Kontroversy, Something Else, The Village Green Preservation Society, Lola Versus Powerman and The Moneygoround, Muswell Hillbillies, Everybody’s In Show-Biz, Preservation Acts 1 & 2 and A Soap Opera.

All tracks have been carefully remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Studios in LA, overseen by Andrew Sandoval.

The Journey Part 2 will be released on 17 November, 2023 through BMG Records.
