About The Village Green Preservation Society [3-CD Special Deluxe Edition]

The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society is the sixth studio album by the English rock group the Kinks, released in November 1968. It was the last album by the original quartet (Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Pete Quaife, Mick Avory), as bassist Quaife left the group in early 1969. A collection of vignettes of English life, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society was assembled from songs written and recorded over the previous two years. The album failed to chart upon its initial release, and Ray Davies has called it "the most successful ever flop. " The album was ranked number 258 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, and it was described by Uncut in 2014 as a "brilliantly observed concept album". In 2018, the album earned a gold disc for reaching sales of 100,000 copies.. It was voted number 141 in Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums 3rd Edition (2000).
