Legendary British guitar group the Kinks are to reissue their first three albums in a double-CD deluxe format on March 28 2011.

Kinks (1964), Kinda Kinks (1965) and The Kink Kontroversey (1965) will each be backed with an exhilarating selection of rarities, outtakes, demos, session tracks and in-depth liner notes detailing the album’s creation.

A hefty, 28-track version of their debut album Kinks, comes alongside a disc packed full of bonus material, including alternative takes of Too Much Monkey Business and Got Love If You Want It as well as BBC interviews with Ray Davies and BBC session tracks. These include the band’s interpretation of Bo Diddley’s Cadillac, the number one hit You Really Got Me and number two single All Day and All of the Night.

The bonus material included on the Kinda Kinks re-issue is just as fascinating, with demo versions of I Go To Sleep, When I See That Girl Of Mine and A Little Bit of Sunlight in addition to alternative takes of See My Friends and Come On Now. BBC sessions of Tired of Waiting For You, This Strange Effect and Hide and Seek are also included.

The Kink Kontroversy’s deluxe material will feature the mono single versions of Dedicated Follower of Fashion and I’m Not Like Everybody Else as well as album outtake Mr. Reporter and Time Will Tell and BBC session versions of Where Have All The Good Times Gone and Never Met A Girl Like You Before.
