This deluxe edition supervised and remastered (with Dan Hersh)by Andrew Sandoval features both the mono and stereo versions of this classic album as well as single tracks, bonus outtakes and previously unreleased BBC sessions recorded by the band in support of this terrific album.
The sound is exceptionally good--yes, it is louder than the previous version but the album still sounds quite dynamic and Sandoval was able to locate the best sounding tapes for these reissues. The mono sounds particularly good--very punchy with a lot of presence.
Disc one features the entire mono album as well as the single tracks "Act Nice and Gentle", "Mr. Pleasant", "Susannah's Still Alive", "Autumn Almanac". The remainder of the album is fleshed out by the following BBC tracks; "Sunny Afternoon", "Autumn Almanac", "Mr. Pleasant", "Susannah's Still Alive" (duplicating the singles included), "David Watts". We also get previously unreleased alternate mixes/versions of "David Watts", "Harry Rag" and the rare "Afternoon Tea" from the Canadian mono mix of the album.
The previously released BBC tracks also appear--"Love Me Till The Sun Shines", "Death of a Clown", "Good Luck Charm" and "Harry Rag".
Disc two consists of the entire album in stereo as well as the single tracks "Susannah's Still Live", "Autumn Almanac". "Sand in My Shoe" an early working version with completely different lyrics and a different musical performance of "Tin Soldier Man" as well as alternate mixes of "Afternoon Tea", "Mr.Read more ›

On to this particular edition; well, like all the others in this Kinks Deluxe Edition range, SOMETHING ELSE BY THE KINKS is yet another well-researched and thoughtfully packaged set. The mono mix is suitably beefy, but the stereo mix is a real treat, offering a nice balance of sound and some notable differences with its mono equivalent, such as the more prominent organ during the close of 'Situation Vacant'. Overall, though, the stereo mix makes it sound as though The Kinks were working with a much higher recording budget than they were actually able to during their years at Pye Records, and it blesses SOMETHING ELSE BY THE KINKS with the kind of polish associated with The Beatles' albums.
The bonus material is once again a mixture of the familiar (the 'Autumn Almanac' single and fine b-sides like 'Mr.Read more ›
