The Kinks' 'Lola' and 'Percy' to Get the Deluxe Treatment...Together!

 When The Kinks' Pye albums got the deluxe treatment three years ago, there were two glaring omissions. Their commercial comeback Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround and their underrated soundtrack album Percy got passed by. At the time, reissue producer Andrew Sandoval told me that Lola was on the way but first he had to hash out some details with Ray Davies. I guess those details have finally gotten hashed, because Sanctuary/BMG is preparing to release both albums together on a double-disc deluxe edition due August 18. This is an appropriate coupling, since both records deal with gender complexities: the title track of Lola being a classic rocker about a cross dresser and Percy being a film about a man who undergoes the first penis transplant. Both discs will be souped up with bonus tracks, mostly pertaining to Lola, with a couple of unfamiliar titles, such as "Anytime" and "The Good Life".
