The Journey - Pt. 2 (Vinyl 2LP)

BMG
Vinyl 2LP
You know, The Kinks don't often get mentioned in the same breath as some of the more deified acts whose careers began in the 60s, but jeez Louise, what an unbelievably great band they really were. The Journey - Pt. 2 is, surprise!, the second such collection of its kind, packing in the hits, but taking a bit of a different route than a typical "best of". The 27 tunes here were all hand-picked by the band members to represent moments in the journey of The Kinks, and choices are plucked from their singles, b-sides, album cuts, and - most thrillingly - some previously unheard live takes and tunes revisited and remastered from the original source by Ray Davies himself. - Flying Out

The Journey - Pt. 2 is a collection of tracks chosen by The Kinks’ Ray Davies, Dave Davies and Mick Avory that reflect the trials and tribulations of their journey through life together as a band since 1963. The albums are split into themed sections created by The Kinks.

Contains hits, key album tracks, singles, band favorites and B-sides. Features six new Ray Davies track mixes, including three previously unreleased 1975 live versions. All recordings remastered from original sources.

Hits featured are Lola, Sunny Afternoon, 20th Century Man, Dedicated Follower Of Fashion, Till The End Of The Day, A Well Respected Man, See My Friends, Everybody’s A Star (Starmaker).
