The Kinks will re-issue three classic albums on vinyl as part of this year’s Record Store Day initiative.
The band will release ‘Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)’, ‘Face To Face’ and ‘Something Else’ on April 21st, and join the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Noel Gallagher, the Sex Pistols and Bloc Party in confirming special vinyl releases for Record Store Day.
‘Arthur…’ will be a 2-LP edition on white coloured vinyl, 1966′s ‘Face To Face’ will also be a 2-LP edition and will come on blue coloured vinyl, while ‘Something Else’ will be available on red coloured vinyl.
The three vinyl reissues come with deluxe packaging in both Mono and Stereo mixes, and will be released with booklets designed by award winning art director Phil Smee, packed with rare and unreleased images from the era.
Each reissue was re-mastered from original tapes by Kinks archivist Andrew Sandoval and is limited to 500 copies in the UK, all of which are individually numbered.Just Published:
