The Kinks recently released a new Ray Davies mix of their 1974 studio track “Money Talks” and an accompanying video.
The new digital version will be featured on the second part of the British rock group’s career-defining anthology, The Journey Part 2, due out on November 17th via BMG.
“Money Talks” featured on The Kinks’ 1974 studio concept album Preservation Act 2. Davies and Matt Jaggar did the reimagined version of the song at Konk Studios in London.
Davies says the track is about “Moral decline.” Dave Davies comments, “Always amused me when we did it live. An exceptional song I think.” Drummer Mick Avory fondly recalls, “I have memories of playing this song on the US tours in the 70s. It’s a good old stomper for the stage.”
The Journey – Part 2, compiled by the band, will be available on 2 CD, 2 LP, Digital and HD Digital formats. The physical formats contain a booklet with band photos and track-by-track notes written by original members Ray Davies, Dave Davies and Mick Avory, sharing their memories of the time and weaving them into The Kinks’ incredible story.
