Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. stereo pressing of Kinks-Size by the Kinks.
About this copy: This copy of Kinks-Size is a 1977 U.S. (rechanneled) stereo pressing on the Reprise label of an album that was originally released in 1965.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a small saw mark in the lower right hand corner of the cover.
A nice copy of a classic LP.
Background: Released in 1965, Kinks-Size was the second U.S. album by the Kinks.
The album was a U.S.-only release, containing B-sides of singles and tracks from a UK-only EP.
The album reached #13 on the U.S. album chart.
What makes this record more enjoyable than the band’s U.K. albums of the same era is that it was made up largely of singles, albeit many of them failed ones, but still all efforts at luring in millions of listeners 150 seconds or so at a time. The American label essentially distilled the best parts of the group’s work in England, thus giving albums like Kinks Size a distinct advantage. From the raw, slurred “Louie Louie” to the pounding rave-up of “Come on Now,” this record rocks, showing off the better sides of the group’s R&B output and early, formative, Beatles-influenced experiments as well. It may be a pastiche, but it’s also more fun than their accompanying U.K. long-players of the era, and it had no equivalent in England for many years, though most of the tracks have since surfaced on expanded versions of the band’s first two albums.
