This is the best version yet of the Kinks' debut album. It contains both the mono and stereo versions of the album, as well as contemporary singles, outtakes and other material. The sound quality, considering the recordings are 47 years old, is superb, crisp and clean. Some people may find the stereo mix a bit gimmicky, with some strange panning of the vocals on some of the numbers. In which case the beautifully mastered mono version is just for you. If you are a Kinks completist and want the best possible sound quality, then these deluxe editions are just the ticket.
