Liner Notes:

The Kinks played a leading part of the British Invasion of America. With Ray Davies' song-writing talent at the helm, they soon became one of popular music's most significant bands, influencing a plethora of styles from hard rock to Britpop.

The DVD draws on rare footage of the Kinks performing their greatest hits live from television and film archives, and also features the views of a leading team of experts, including Kinks' biographer Johnny Rogan and Keith Altham who was Ray Davies' publicist in the 1980s.

The 72-page, full colour book features many rare photographs and includes a biography of the band during the sixties, and a complete track-by-track analysis of every studio album the Kinks released up to 1978.
