SHARE NOW

To celebrate the album’s 50th anniversary, The Kinks are releasing a special multi-format version of Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One, or as most call it… the Lola album.

Ray Davies of The Kinks says: “The album is a celebration of artistic freedom (including my own) and the right for anyone to be gender free if one wishes. The secret is to be a good and trusting person and friend.”

Although it appeared during a transitional period for The Kinks, it contained two hit singles: “Lola”, which reached the #9 US, #2 UK and Germany – becoming the Kinks' biggest success since “Sunny Afternoon” in 1966 – and “Apeman”, which peaked at #5 in the UK and Germany.

The box set campaign also launches with a brand new Ray Davies’ remix / medley of The Kinks track “Any Time.” Available December 18.
