The Kinks' 12th Studio Album on Vinyl!
Mastered for Vinyl by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!

Preservation Act 1 is a concept album and the 12th studio LP by The Kinks, originally released on RCA on 16 November 1973.

Preservation is the band's most ambitious project - a rock opera that uses the charming, small-town nostalgia of Village Green as a template to draw the entirety of society and how it works.

Epic opener "Morning Song" sets the scene and mood for the record, followed by a classic-sounding Dave Davies' riff, "Daylight," which echoes themes and sounds tones of one their most recognizable and highly acclaimed albums, The Village Green Preservation Society.

Standout tracks are the endearingly lazy "Sitting in the Midday Sun" and the beautiful "Sweet Lady Genevieve" - both strong contenders for overlooked Ray Davies masterpieces.

A critically acclaimed album, reviewed by Rolling Stone at the time as "a highly listenable, enjoyable album."

This release is a faithful reproduction of the original 1973 album, on heavyweight 180g vinyl. A must-have for any Kinks fan and its first vinyl re-press since the limited edition 2008 U.S. pressing.
