Kinks Lola (rare Coca Cola version)

Written by on May 25, 2018



On May 25, 1970, Ray Davies had to briefly leave The Kinks North American tour to fly back to London to re-record the vocal track of their new single, “Lola.” The original version had the words “Coca-Cola” in it and the BBC decided they would not play the record as they considered it a commercial. Ray re-did it with “cherry cola” to get the airplay.

Do you remember when the song was first on the radio in the US and it had ‘Coca-Cola’ in it, or our you more familiar with the ‘cherry cola’ version? And, which was your favorite version, or didn’t you even know they did it?
