· The Kinks - "Picture Book" 6 CD set - Parts 1 & 2

This is a Japanese-only 6-disc boxed set of the Kinks called "Picture Book." Apparently about a third of it is previously unreleased.
I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, so I can't say for sure.


Limited Edition Japanese-only 2008 digitally remastered six CD set, the first ever Kinks box set, chronicling the band's 40 year career over six chronologically-ordered CDs. Each disc deals with a particular chapter in the band's history, from their 1964 breakthrough onwards. Beautifully packaged in a classic, lift-lid style box, "Picture Book" features well over a hundred tracks - a third of which are previously unreleased or new to CD. These include rare demos, mono versions, alternate mixes, archived BBC Television & session material and live renditions alongside the classic originals. This collection spans the band's entire career from their early '60s beginning right up through their final studio album in 1994.
