The Kinks: Preservation Act 2

1. Product Details

PRESERVATION ACT 2 is the 1974 follow-up to THE KINKS' 1973 Preservation Act 1 RCA album, and their thirteenth studio LP. The album is a finely produced concept of story, theatre, instrumentals, announcements, guest singers and songs. A further installment of Ray Davies' musical drama, with the character sketches, wry observations and ballads seen on Preservation Act 1. Full of The Kinks' distinctive and unique charm, featuring gems such as "Money Talks," "He's Evil," "Mirror Of Love" and "Artificial Man." This is a 2LP black heavyweight 180g vinyl in gatefold sleeve, with original artwork faithfully reproduced. The first repress, apart from a limited edition 2008 US pressing, since the original release in 1974.
