The Kinks' have revealed the tracklisting for the reissue of their classic album 'Muswell Hillbillies'.

The special edition version of the LP, which is set for release on October 7, will feature five previously unreleased songs as well as a smattering of alternate recordings and tracks taken from John Peel radio sessions on the BBC. Unreleased tracks include 'Lavender Lane', 'Mountain Woman', 'Kentucky Moon' and 'Queenie', in addition to a demo recording of the song 'Nobody's Fool'.

'Muswell Hillbillies' was originally released in 1971 and was The Kinks' ninth studio album. The LP failed to match the commercial performance of the band's previous studio album, 1970's 'Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One', and failed to chart in the UK.

Disc One

'20th Century Man'
'Acute Schizophrenia Paranoia Blues'
'Holiday'
'Skin And Bone'

In 2011, The Kinks' Dave Davies played down any chance of the band reuniting in the near future as his relationship with brother Ray is too fraught and difficult. Speaking about their relationship, he said: "How could I not love my own brother? I just can’t stand to be with him. About an hour with Ray’s my limit, so it would be a very short reunion." The band released their 23rd and final studio album 'Phobia' in 1993, before splitting up in 1996.
