About this item
Classic Kinks catalogue on vinyl. The original albums on their finest format, with the original UK tracklistings.
‘Something Else’ is the fifth UK studio album by The Kinks, released in September 1967. The album marks the final involvement of American producer Shel Talmy in The Kinks’ 1960s studio recordings; henceforth Ray Davies would assume recording production. Many of the recordings feature the keyboard work of session player Nicky Hopkins and the backing vocals of Ray Davies’ wife, Rasa.
Songs on the album composed by Ray Davies followed his affinity for strongly English-inspired subject matter, including the harpsichord-laden ‘Two Sisters’, the lazy shuffle of ‘End Of The Season’ and the sardonic ‘David Watts’. The album includes the UK No. 2 hit single ‘Waterloo Sunset’.
