Ray Davies curates Kinks compilation

The Kinks’ Ray Davies has curated the tracklist for upcoming compilation album Sunny Afternoon.

Due on October 16, it features the original recordings of every song used in the acclaimed West End musical of the same name, based on the iconic band’s career.

Davies has also added a selection of works he feels to be in context, alongside interview and live session recordings.

Sunny Afternoon has won four Olivier Awards since it debuted last year, including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement In Music.

Dave Davies recently admitted the chances of a reunion with brother Ray were receding – but added: “Where there’s life, there’s hope.
