The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society is the sixth studio album by the English rock group the Kinks, released in November 1968. It was the last album by the original quartet (Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Pete Quaife, Mick Avory), as bassist Quaife left the group in early 1969. A collection of vignettes of English life, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society was assembled from songs written and recorded over the previous two years.

One of the Kinks' first concept albums, The Village Green Preservation Society is widely regarded today as one of the Kinks' finest albums. Though it was a commercial flop at the time (it didn’t even chart), the album was a critical success. The album was backed by the single of the same name. Like the album, it was a flop. Decades after its release, fans started revisiting it and it is now called Ray Davies' masterpiece.

The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society came out on November 22nd, 1968 - the same day as the Beatles’ White Album - in the . and a couple of months later in the . When the Kinks make a comeback it’ll be in a bar on the East Side. Joking aside, they’re all aware of their legacy and that of Village Green - now that people appreciate it. It was the most melodic of our original music, Ray says. Our early albums were obviously inspired by American R&B. Village Green was the best homespun material we’d done so far. It didn’t seem to bother me that much at the time that it wasn’t a hit, Dave says. I thought it was a hit.

Many of these outtakes were released on the vinyl-only Great Lost Kinks album of 1973 and will not be new to Kinks fans lucky enough to own that album.
