The Kinks box set includes 25 unreleased tracks

A five-disc compilation marking the Kinks’ 50th anniversary includes 25 unreleased tracks, label BMG have confirmed.

The Anthology 1964-1971 will be released on November 18, featuring a total of 139 songs.

It follows a previously-announced 48-track set with sleeve notes by David Bowie, who writes: “I love ‘em. The world loves ‘em. I’ve never heard a Kinks song that I didn’t like.”

Plans for siblings Ray and Dave Davies to reunited for an anniversary tour are still in the air, even though their strained relationship appeared to have smoothed when the pair met and played music together earlier this year.

Now guitarist Dave tells Rolling Stone: “A year ago I might have said, ‘Fuck Ray, he’s such an asshole. Why should I bother doing that? I’ve got my own career.’ But now I’m starting to feel like it would be a shame if we didn’t try and do something.”
