The Kinks announce box set of BBC archives
In August The Kinks will release a massive collection of their works from the BBC archives, almost 50 years since the start of the band.
According to Pitchfork, the collection will be available either as a 2xCD best-of set or a 5xCD plus DVD box. Both of which are out on August 13th.
The Kinks at the BBC box set will feature a whole host of sessions, live recordings and unreleased material spanning the band's career. Including footage of the band's performances on Top of the Pops.
As well as footage from the BBC archives, they are also "inviting contributions from fans who helped dust off rogue broadcasts which may have fallen by the wayside."
