Yeah, we know, we know — “coloured” is the British spelling. But since this Record Store Day reissue is limited to 500 copies, all in the UK, the British spelling’s kind of appropriate.
So, if you’re probably never actually going to see one of these beauties in person, why are we telling you about it? Sometimes it’s worth it just knowing that something this beautiful exists somewhere in the world. If you love it, set it free, man.
Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), Face To Face and Something Else By The Kinks are here (well, there in the picture anyway) on, respectively, white, blue and red 2xLP vinyl editions — y’know, mono and stereo, along with booklet in the gatefolds designed by Phil Smee, stuffed with rare and unreleased images of our smirky lads. The discs are remastered from the original tapes by Kinks archivist Andrew Sandoval.
