I agree.....I have the Castle releases and from what I can tell from viewing the new releases, the added bonus material I already have. But thankfully, and hopefully, the trend will continue with re-releasing the albums on vinyl like has been done with the first 3 albums.....

I bought the Deluxe 'Kinda Kinks'
In the booklet the credits include: "Mitch Mitchell : drums (possibly Disc1: 12-14)
Puzzling credit, it seems unlikely, and disc one only has twelve tracks anyway. Mick Avory was the sole drummer for this LP , except for 'Tired of Waiting for You'. ( I know Avory only played on some of the first album's tracks, and "Kontroversy's" as well).
Any one have any comments on this?

"Got My Feet On the Ground" was credited to Ray only, but didn't Dave co-write it?
For all the care put into this re-issue, does the booklet still have some silly, careless mistakes?

"There Is a New World Just Opening For Me" sounds different to the song that appears on the "Picture Book" box set.
The version on the box set may have been sped up . It sounds better than the version included here.
Does anyone feel the same way?

I always thought "Kinda Kinks" to be an underrated album, better than people gave it credit for .
Interesting to see Davies quote "...the album is probably better than I gave it credit for and has stood the test of time".

Anyone who thinks The Kinks ended in the late 60s early 70s just hasn't been paying attention! Beautiful song!

"Scattered" -- another one I really like... :D

I'm also partial to this one from 'Word Of Mouth' -- "Summer's Gone":

You're not a Kinks fan(atic) are you?

I don't think Fogerty will ever forget his grudge. If he was going to do it, it would have been at their R&R Hall of Fame induction.

It would be great to see either band reunite. I think The Kinks have a better chance.

Why does John Fogerty hate the other two surviving CCR members so much? I know they sided with the record label, against John Fogerty years ago, but even Pink Floyd buried the hatchet for a couple of days to do Live 8 in 2005.

I like 'Long Distance'.
I remember it being on the cassette release of the album, but not the vinyl release.

Hinch says:
Other than what you said, I really don't know. I do know even his brother sided against him on his death bed. That may have something to do with it.

Did you see the R&RHF induction? They stood there together on stage and even thanked each other. John said he couldn't have done it without his band members.

Doug and Stu said later, they sat at their table after the presentation, waiting to be called up to perform, but when John performed with some other artists, they felt insulted and got up and left.

I agree. Some of their best work was later. In fact, I never was fortunate to see them until the late 70s and early 80s. I never can remember if I saw them twice or three times.

I saw them about 20 times. My favorite time was a surprise one. I was with my wife, pre-kids, on vacation in England and we decided to take a trip to Oxford. We're doing a tour of Oxford University and we see a notice on the wall that The Kinks are playing there that night. We ran to the box office, bought the tickets and saw The Kinks in England! This was during the US stadium period and to see them in a small auditorium in England blew us away. They also put on a completely different type of show and played some amazing obscure Kinks songs. It was awesome to say the least. (Next time I'll tell you about the XMas show at Brooklyn College where Ray came out as Santa Claus and sang Father Christmas)

Sounds cool!

I saw them once at the Grand Ole Opry House. They allow other concerts besides country. I also saw them at The Tennessee Theater, which used to be a movie theater, but was renovated for concerts. For some reason I keep thinking I saw them a third time, but I can't remember where. If I did it was probably at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium.

Are you in Tennessee? I'll send you my Re-Instate Hank The Opry Has Sinned T-Shirt to wear around there for awhile!

It is a crime. I do want to visit Nashville and Memphis one of these days. I'll probably kick the Hank Williams Impersonator at the Opry in the shin!
