Earlier this year, Hip-O-Select/Sanctuary reissued the first three albums from British Invasion greats the Kinks. On June 13, we’ll get another set of three reissues, as the same labels will release expanded double-disc editions of 1966’s Face to Face, 1967’s Something Else, and 1969’s Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire).
The reissues include mono and stereo mixes, BBC sessions, and interviews, remastered by Kinks historian Andrew Sandoval. The packages also include rare photos. We’ve got all the tracklists below, as well as footage of the Kinks playing the Arthur track “Victoria” live.
In other Kinks news, frontman Ray Davies serves as curator of this year’s Meltdown Festival, which comes to the Southbank Centre in London June 10-19. Davies will perform, as will people like Yo La Tengo, Wire, the Sonics, Nick Lowe, Madness, Anna Calvi, Current 93, and Lydia Lunch.
