The Kinks reissue more classic albums in brand new deluxe format

| On 18, May 2011

Legendary British guitar group the Kinks are to re-release three classic albums in a brand new double CD deluxe format on June 13th, following the re-issue of their first three albums in March.

Featuring rarities, outtakes, demos, session tracks and in depth liner notes ‘Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)’ (1969), ‘Face to Face’ (1966) and ‘Something’ Else’ (1967) will be released on June 13th, while Ray Davies’ Meltdown is in full swing on London’s South Bank.

This 2-CD expanded edition comes with deluxe packaging containing Mono and Stereo mixes as well as BBC sessions and short interviews, all re-mastered from original tapes by well-known Kinks archivist Andrew Sandoval. The CD booklets were designed by award winning art director Phil Smee and comes packed with rare and unreleased images.
These releases follow March’s re-issue of ‘Kinks’ (1964), ‘Kinda Kinks’ (1965) and ‘The Kink Kontroversey’ (1965).

Forming over 45 years ago in North London, the Kinks have long been regarded as one of the truly great British bands. Members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, at the core of the band were brothers Ray and Dave Davies. The band released 25 acclaimed studio albums during their prolific career, which finally came to an end in 1996.
