Some press clippings from the original release of ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society’ - if you had to pick one favourite quote about the album, which would it be? Image: taken from the new VG50 box set.
The Kinks Oct 31, 2018
Walter White may not be real, but according to Ray Davies his ‘Walter’ did exist.. “Walter existed. He’s drawn from about two or three people I had in mind. They were friends I knew. When I was an art student I did a lot of caricatures of people, what I refer to as documentary art. I think that experience helped me see characters, to try to get the character across in the song.” - Extract from the VG50 box set, out now. Video: Fan upload of The Kinks - ‘Do You Remember Walter’ set to footage from TV series ‘The Breaking Bad’.

“I think the art department at Pye came up with a few ideas. I wanted a plain picture but marketing people wanted to put us in the psychedelic era. According to the art department the sleeve was psychedelic. We went with it, it looked like a sunrise or a sunset. It was one of the most-well remembered, beautifully memorable photo sessions we ever did. To me it’s The Kinks as they truly should be portrayed. What we’re wearing says so much about us as people, we’re comfortable together. We’re not wearing band suits but we look comfortable as a team. It’s more to do with what’s in our heads – not what’s on our backs.” - Ray Davies (about the VGPS album cover). Get both the UK and Swedish version of the album along with a ton of other exclusive content as part of the VG50 deluxe box set, out now https://thekinks.lnk.to/VG50FA

“The talking verses in ‘Big Sky’, in Ray’s assessment, are “like the voice of God”; the narrator describing a bigger force looking down on humble folk, powerful yet indifferent. Or was the narrator actually the Big Sky himself?” – Andy Neill (extract from the VG50 box set book notes). Available to stream and as part of the brand new box set from tomorrow!

Have a listen to a snippet of “Home Demos Medley” – another track from the VG50 deluxe release, out this Friday 26th. “These rare demos were found in the archives at Konk Studios after being locked away for decades. They represent what I sometimes refer to as a ‘stream of conscious thought’", before the lyric and often the melody, are fully formed, but are used to give the band an overview of what the track is like.” – Ray Davies
