The Kinks and the BBC are celebrated on “The Kinks At The BBC”. The release will be available as a 2CD ‘Best Of’ collection & limited edition collectors’ 5 CD + DVD complete set.

This release is collated from all of the BBC owned Kinks recordings that still exist in the archive and charts the inexorable rise of the band: from the first steps on the Pye label, to the glory days as one of the greatest acts of all time. The BBC gave the band a platform and support at crucial stages in their career and “The Kinks at the BBC” could be seen essentially as an alternate Greatest Hits, a musical growing up in public.

This incredible archive represents a great set of previously unreleased recordings in the Kinks catalogue. This collection brings together a raft of sessions and live recordings from throughout the band’s career including the rare concert and unheard session recordings. Included also is a DVD of the bands sought after appearances on Top of the Pops and the Old Grey Whistle Test a well as concerts from throughout the band’s career. This is a first for the band as these recordings have never been available in one place before.

Fully supported and endorsed by the band – The Kinks at the BBC” is a triumphant collection of the defining moments of a truly seminal British band, as witnessed, broadcast and archived by the voice of the nation, the BBC.
