      The Kinks

      The Kink Kontroversy - 2022 Reissue

        The Kinks came into their own as album artists on The Kink Kontroversy. Ray Davies fully matured as a songwriter on this title, which bridges their raw early British Invasion sound with more sophisticated lyrics and thoughtful production.

        Full of powerful ravers like the hit "Til the End of the Day" (utilizing yet another "You Really Got Me"-type riff) and the abrasive, Dave Davies-sung cover of "Milk Cow Blues," but tracks like the calypso pastiche "I'm on an Island," where Ray sings of isolation with a forlorn yet merry bite, were far more indicative of their future direction.

        Other great songs on this underrated album include the uneasy nostalgia of "Where Have All the Good Times Gone?," the plaintive, almost fatalistic ballads "Ring the Bells" and "The World Keeps Going Round," and the Dave Davies-sung declaration of independence "I Am Free."


        Milk Cow Blues
        Ring The Bells
        Gotta Get The First Plane Home
        When I See That Girl Of Mine
        I Am Free
        Till The End Of The Day
        The World Keeps Going Round
        I'm On An Island
        Where Have All The Good Times Gone
        It's Too Late
        What's In Store For Me
        You Can't Win

        The Kinks

        Face To Face - 2022 Reissue

          Face to Face is one of the finest collections of pop songs released during the '60s. Conceived as a loose concept album, Face to Face sees Ray Davies' fascination with English class and social structures flourish, as he creates a number of vivid character portraits.

          Davies' growth as a lyricist coincided with the Kinks' musical growth. Face to Face is filled with wonderful moments, whether it's the mocking Hawaiian guitars of the rocker "Holiday in Waikiki," the droning Eastern touches of "Fancy," the music hall shuffle of "Dandy," or the lazily rolling "Sunny Afternoon."

          These examples only scratches the surface of the riches of Face to Face, which offers other classics like "Rosy Won't You Please Come Home," "Party Line," "Too Much on My Mind," "Rainy Day in June," and "Most Exclusive Residence for Sale," making the record one of the most distinctive and accomplished albums of its time.


          Party Line
          Rosy Won't You Please Come Home
          Too Much On My Mind
          Session Man
          Rainy Day In June
          House In The Country
          Holiday In Waikiki
          Most Exclusive Residence For Sale
          Little Miss Queen Of Darkness
          You're Looking Fine
          Sunny Afternoon
          I'll Remember

          The Kinks

          Kinda Kinks - 2022 Reissue

            Kinda Kinks is the second album by English rock band the Kinks, released in 1965. Recorded and released within two weeks after returning from a tour in Asia.

            The album is a huge step forward in songwriting capabilities for Ray Davies and the band. They secured themselves a number one spot on the UK singles chart with "Tired of Waiting for You", the full album charted at #3.

            Originally released by Pye in the UK on 5 March 1965 and reissue now by BMG on heavy weight black vinyl in 2022. The US release had a rearranged track listing and repackaged cover. Several tracks were removed, and the single "Set Me Free", released two months after the UK issue of Kinda Kinks, was unique to the album's US release. In the UK, the album was only released in mono; no stereo mix was made.

            The album also includes cult favourite tracks ‘Look For Me Baby’, ‘Come On Now’, ‘Something Better Beginning’ as well as "Nothin' in This World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout That Girl" which put them right in the front of the British Invasion pack for seriousness and complexity, out in front of where the Beatles or almost any of the competition were in early 1965, but it didn't stop them from switching gears to the bluesy "Naggin' Woman."

            TRACK LISTING

            Look For Me Baby
            Got My Feet On The Ground
            Nothin' In The World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'bout That Girl
            Naggin' Woman
            Wonder Where My Baby Is Tonight
            Tired Of Waiting For You
            Dancing In The Street
            Don't Ever Change
            Come On Now
            So Long
            You Shouldn't Be Sad
            Something Better Beginning

            The Kinks

            Something Else By The Kinks - 2022 Reissue

              Something Else By The Kinks, expands The Kinks accomplishments, offering 13 classic British pop songs. These offerings focus on more nostalgic and sentimental themes, retreating from the psychedelic and mod posturings that had dominated the rock world. Something Else sounds like nothing else from 1967.

              The Kinks change gear on this album, preferring acoustic ballads, music hall numbers, and tempered R&B to full-out guitar attacks. Part of the album's power lies in its calm music, since it provides an elegant support for Davies' character portraits and vignettes. From the martial stomp of "David Watts" to the lovely, shimmering "Waterloo Sunset," there's not a weak song on the record.

              And just as impressive is the emergence of Dave Davies as a songwriter. His Dylanesque "Death of a Clown" and bluesy rocker "Love Me Till the Sun Shines" hold their own against Ray's masterpieces, and help make Something Else the endlessly fascinating album that it is.

              TRACK LISTING

              David Watts
              Death Of A Clown
              Two Sisters
              No Return

              Iron Fist - 40th Anniversary Edition

                Iron Fist is repositioned as a vital snapshot of Motörhead at a crucial period when they found themselves caught in the tornado ignited by success and, in true Motörhead style, careered into their next phase at such velocity it transcended logic or reason to become this trio’s final kamikaze joyride. Forty years later, with fall-out long dissipated and a proper mastering job that avoided it at the time, Iron Fist sounds like prime Motörhead with the gloves and seat-belts off. For sheer velocity, it could be fastest of them all, the ferocious title track earning such an accolade in Kerrang! in its tribute spread to Lemmy after he passed away.

                By 1982, punk had been and gone, the new wave of heavy metal sounded squeaky and cliched next to its grubby godfathers and, while still trouncing all opposition, Motörhead retained that essential ability to laugh at everything, including themselves as they made lightning raids on every sense and orifice with everything cranked to overload.

                Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Pt. 1

                  ‘Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Part One’ is the eighth studio album by The Kinks, one of the most influential rock acts of all time, and was recorded and released in 1970. A concept album, it is a satirical appraisal of the music industry, including song publishers, unions, the press, accountants, business managers, and life on the road. This classic album appeared during a transitional period for the Kinks, and was a critical and commercial success.

                  50th anniversary LP release featuring the newly remastered original stereo album on black heavyweight vinyl in a carefully restored and replicated original gatefold sleeve. Includes a 12” booklet with comprehensive notes, new band quotes, rare photos and memorabilia. Features the hit singles ‘Lola’ & ‘Apeman’. Produced in association with The Kinks, with audio & visual content curated by Ray Davies.

                  This is the first time the album has been remastered and is the first LP re-issue of it since the mid-1980s


                  Protest And Survive : The Anthology

                    Celebrating 40 years since the release of their debut single in 1980, British hardcore punk band Discharge are surviving pioneers of the subgenre they invented; D-beat. Having had a worldwide influence on both extreme metal and punk with their uncompromising, raw sound over the last 40 years, Discharge’s political message is now relevant more than ever. Still performing globally in clubs and at festivals, the quintet are heralded as one of the godfathers of the political and anarcho punk scenes. Heavily championed by John Peel in their early years, they clocked up several chart singles and albums. They went on to influence metal bands like Metallica and Celtic Frost, as well as punk acts like Rancid.
