An iconic and influential band who made waves in their own era and have continued to do so, The Kinks will today (October 16th) release a 2-disc retrospective of their greatest songs, titled ‘Sunny Afternoon’. Out through the BMG label, the album track choice is based around the hit West End Musical, personal choices of front man Ray Davies plus a few added bonuses including live BBC interviews and sessions. With a total of 9 UK top 5 hit singles including 3 Number 1s, the album, unlike other Kinks compilations, also features tracks chosen by Davies that were not originally hits but over the years have become so due to TV shows, films and covers by other artists.

With a HUGE total of 48 tracks over the two discs, this really is a must have for Kinks fans and for music fans who remember their heyday.
