This month you could be in with a chance of winning one of 5 copies of  THE KINKS – SUNNY AFTERNOON, THE VERY BEST OF (2CD)

Original Kinks recordings of songs from the successful West End musical ‘Sunny Afternoon’, including the hits ‘You Really Got Me’, ‘Waterloo Sunset’, ‘Sunny Afternoon’, ‘Dedicated Follower Of Fashion’, ‘Lola’, ‘All Day And All Of The Night’ and more.

“I never heard a Kinks song that I didn’t like” – David Bowie

One of the most iconic and influential British bands of all-time, The Kinks release ‘Sunny Afternoon, The Very Best Of ’ – a must-have 2-disc retrospective – on October 16th on the BMG label.

The album features original versions of all the songs from the hit West End musical with added bonus tracks not included in the production plus some of Ray Davies’s personal picks he feels fit into the context of the release, including other Kinks hits and classics, BBC interviews and BBC session tracks.

Along with a total of 9 UK top 5 hit singles including 3 Number 1s, the album, unlike other Kinks compilations, features tracks chosen by Ray that were not originally hits but over the years have become so due to TV shows, films and covers by other artists.

The results are in!

Congratulations to our winner
Colin Taylor, Sue Howe, Belinda Fewings, Dave Jarvis & Janet Flynn
We will contact you via email to assist in claiming your prize!

Thank you to all who entered, and good luck with our other competitions!

My husband had a brain haemorrhage in 1973 just after we married. He was critical for weeks. He is a lover of pop music. By playing the likes of the Kinks to hin, bought he back to me. ❤️

My eldest brother, who sadly passed away a few years, got me into The Kinks when I was 11/12 years old. I insisted that "Days" live at Glastonbury by Ray Davis was the last song played. It was the first and only time my daughter has seen me cry.

I was 14 years old when " You really got me " was a hit in 1964 and I used to love that song so much so I think the rest of my class knew as well. I remember a few years ago bumped into an old classmate and she reminded me of how much I loved that song. Happy Days !!!!
