    RSD is in a week. So what is the scoop on this disc? Is it done by Kevin Grey? Anybody heard anything?

    I really want this - hope I won't have to pay scalper prices.
    (2,500 copies, I believe - at $40 a pop, I doubt it'll sell out too quick)

    Kinks Kronikles is such a great comp only let down by sound quality. If the RSD improves on this I'm all over it.

    $30 in the US. Pretty average price for RSD.

    That’s what I’m trying to find out before Saturday.

    I messaged Andrew Sandoval a few months back and he had nothing to do with it....

    As the original isn't easy to pick up in the UK, I'm down for this. Hopefully there's still a few on Banquet at 6pm, though £25.99 is pretty steep... but this is vinyl in 2020 sadly. Hopefully we get true stereo for all the simulated stereo tracks... or even the original mono.

    Unfortunately as the coronavirus is still a huge problem where I live, I guess I’m gonna have to get this one online. Let’s just hope the prices aren’t too bad afterwards.

    This was my first introduction to the Kinks.....what a great comp. Way ahead of it's time in that regard.

    This is what I'm hoping as well. I've not been able to find out anything as yet.

    There's a review here - The Kinks • The Kink Kronikles [2LP] although it's slim on details, as to what mixes are used. There were 3 or 4 fake stereo tracks on the original vinyl. The CD corrected these for the most part, everything was mono or stereo, except for "Mindless Child Of Motherhood", which was a fold.

    I think "This Is Where I Belong", "Wonderboy", "Dead End Street" and "King Kong" were fake stereo on the original LP.

    He could’ve at least told us what’s written in the dead wax.

    I was going to buy this. I used to have the original vinyl and then the CD but neither had great sonics.
    However, the fact that they coupled sides 1 with 4 and 2 with 3 kind of puts me off. Some might see this as authentically following the original release but I feel it's lazy and sloppy production.

    I wouldn't expect much in the way of using proper/correct mixes then. Still, it'll be a nice place to find the stereo "Autumn Almanac" on vinyl (unless they screw that up).

    So what’s the verdict? I didn’t go and the local Bull Moose sold out. Wasn’t willing to take a gamble for myself.

    $30 at my retailer this am. For a 2LP set? That seems like a relative bargain to me.

    Jack It’s alright, in fact it’s a gas

    As a long time Kinks Kompletist, I was going to get this until I realized that I haven’t played the original in over 10 years. I passed.
