Here again, we have another botched re-issue of something out of the Kinks' collections that had nothing to do with the original albums. The original Kink Kronikles came out in about 1965-66 (at least in the USA), had entirely different cover art, and featured Milk Cow Blues among other songs from that era of the Kinks. What we see here is a mishmash of excerpts from The Village Green Preservation Society and several other albums coming immediately before or immediately after that. Included in this collection are several obscure songs off of the double-album Great Lost Kinks Album's vinyl version from the 1970's that are now missing from the versions being sold on here. This really adds to the confusion of collectors trying to re-establish their collections of old Kinks albums, and one has to disapprove of it. The songs are worth it, but the record company's botch compilations deserve the highest disparagement.

The label pictured in this copy is a later 70s pressing. The Warner bubble logo didn't appear until 1975.
