Nearly 50 years on from their beginning, the Kinks are preparing to release a compilation of sessions, live recordings and unreleased material from the band’s career working with the BBC. According to Pitchfork, the set will be available two different ways: as a two-CD best-of set, or as five CDs along with a DVD box. Both sets will be available beginning Monday, August 13.
Per a press release: “The Kinks at the BBC has been assembled by trawling the BBC archives, but also by inviting contributions from fans who helped dust off rogue broadcasts which may have fallen by the wayside.”
Some of the content found with the DVD set includes performances from the Kinks’ appearances on Top of the Pops, In Concerts, and The Old Grey Whistle Test.
