Ultimate Music Guide: The Kinks

Give the people what they want! The 12th Uncut Ultimate Music Guide tells the compelling story of The Kinks!

Reprinted in full in this Ultimate Music Guide, most of them have been lost for decades. Uncut's current writers, meanwhile, have produced new reviews of every single album in the Kinks' catalogue, uncovering a few long-neglected gems in the process.
