Seven Kinks Albums to Receive Deluxe Treatment

Sanctuary/Universal is set to release deluxe editions of seven classic Kinks albums in the UK in 2011. While all of these albums have already been reissued on either Velvel or Castle within the past 15 years, these deluxe editions are 2-CD sets that will include even more outtakes and rarities than previous releases. They have also been newly remastered and feature expanded liner notes. As of yet, it appears these will only be available in the US as imports.

The first three albums, ‘Kinks,’ ‘Kinda Kinks,’ and ‘The Kink Kontroversy,’ will come out on March 28. ‘Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)’ and ‘Muswell Hillbillies’ are scheduled to come out in May, followed by ‘Face to Face’ and ‘Something Else by The Kinks’ in July. ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society’ was already reissued as a 3-disc deluxe edition by Sanctuary in 2009; a ‘Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Part One’ deluxe edition remains conspicuously absent.

Here are the tracklistings for the first three reissues:
