iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Kinks first came to light as an important part of the British Invasion of 1964. Their single “You Really Got Me” was an instant rock ‘n’ roll classic, introducing one of the nastiest rhythm guitar sounds of the time. The Kinks' early albums weren't as carefully assembled as those by The Beatles or even The Rolling Stones, and Shel Talmy was a rough and tough record producer (whose own compositions “Bald Headed Woman” and “I’ve Been Driving on Bald Mountain” are flat-out weird). This is the U.K. version of The Kinks’ debut album (the U.S. version skimmed three tracks). It's presented in a deluxe edition that features the original "hard stereo" mixes and the preferable mono mixes of the album. The Kinksize Sessions and Kinksize Hits EPs are added, meaning the single “All Day and All of the Night” is also appended to a decent, if rudimentary, LP. “Stop Your Sobbing” would later become a hit for The Pretenders, and The Kinks' covers of Chuck Berry’s “Beautiful Delilah” and “Too Much Monkey Business” are typical covers for the era.
