3-CD box set of Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One drops Percy from the track listing and instead features the original Lola album remastered from the original tapes plus singles, B-sides, alternate mixes, session outtakes, BBC recordings, and more – including newly-recorded commentary from Ray and Dave Davies. Disc One has the album plus four mono mixes and alternate versions of “Apeman” and “The Moneygoround.”  The second disc of the box is subtitled Alternate Versions / New Medleys & Mixes / Demos / Film Soundtrack.  Its 15 tracks encompass new 2020 mixes, soundtrack selections from The Long Distance Piano Player (a television play written by Alan Sharp in which Davies starred for the BBC in 1970), a couple of live cuts, Ray’s solo “Lola” with orchestra and choir, and “Kitchen Sink” tracks featuring Ray and Dave Davies in conversation as recorded in Ray’s kitchen interspersed with music. The third and final disc, Alternate Versions / New Medleys & Mixes / Demos / Live, has another 15 tracks including new mixes, a 2006 Austin City Limits performance from Ray of “A Long Way from Home,” and more Kitchen Sink ruminations.
