Kinks Picture Book box set

It’s amazing to think that no-one has managed to compile a Kinks’ box set in all these years – until now.

Yes Sanctuary has got round to compiling Picture Book, a six-CD box of tracks compiled by Ray Davies. It covers all of the band’s 40-year career (which could be good or bad), packing in plenty of previously unreleased tracks, rarities and live recordings, along with a 60-page, full colour booklet, which as well as telling the story of the band, also features never seen before photographs.

You can pick it up from December 8th (just in time for Christmas) – a full tracklisting is over the page.
