That’s hyperbole – not so much lost more carefully stored away in a tape archive but never previously released. This track, ‘Time Song‘ has been heard before though, it was played at a concert celebrating the UK’s entry into the European Common Market in 1973. That landmark event of course evolved into a long and fruitful association with our fellow European Union partners, a state of fraternal bliss that we’ll continue to enjoy for another seven-ish months. So it’s timely that this song should reappear now, and it’s an apt teaser for the upcoming 50th anniversary release of ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society’ which is out on BMG on October 26th. The wistful ‘Time Song‘ will be among the bonus tracks. That it could also be a teaser for a few Kinks gigs is, perhaps, too much to hope for. Stranger things have happened though.
