"A rock opera spread over two albums (1973's Preservation Act 1 and its sequel from the following year), Preservation concerns the machinations of the evil Mr. Flash to take over the lives of the nice, ordinary people. Opposing him is the shady Mr. Black, with various characters caught in the middle." - AV Club Preservation Act 2 is a 1974 concept album by British rock band the Kinks, and their thirteenth studio album. The live performances and concert performances of this album were lauded and well-received.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
