Super Hot Stamper

The Kinks
Kinda Kinks

  (Item #: kinkskinda_1811_1901) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • This superb copy of The Kinks' sophomore release earned Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER on both sides, and the vinyl is about as quiet as we can find for a 53 year old Kinks title
  • This Pink and Green Reprise original MONO pressing is lively, balanced and vibrant, with a healthy dose of the Tubey Magical Richness the Kinks' recordings need in order to sound the way we like
  • 4 1/2 stars: "...this album showcased a much more sophisticated sound... it also put them right in the front of the British Invasion pack for seriousness and complexity, out in front of where the Beatles or almost any of the competition were in early 1965..."

Sleepwalker

  (Item #: kinkssleep_1802_1901) 

Our Price: $119.99
Sale Price: $99.00 (You save $20.99 / 17%)


  • A superb copy of the Kinks triumphant return to the charts, with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound on side two and a solid Double Plus (A++) side one
  • It's the first copy to hit the site in a year, and plays on relatively quiet vinyl, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • The sound is full-bodied, lively and smooth - RL's mastering contributes the big bottom end you want for this music
  • Juke Box Music, representing Ray Davies' fun and engaging pop sensibilities at their best
  • Rolling Stone raved that "The Kinks' playing on Sleepwalker is easily their most powerful since 'Lola.'"

Hot Stamper

The Kinks
Kinda Kinks

  (Item #: kinkskinda_1804_1810) 

Our Price: $89.99

  • Very good Hot Stamper sound on both sides of this original STEREO copy of The Kinks' sophomore release
  • There's a healthy dose of the Tubey Magical Richness these recordings need in order to work on this copy
  • The monos win the shootouts but the better original stereo pressings can sound quite good on their own terms
  • "...this album showcased a much more sophisticated sound... it also put them right in the front of the British Invasion pack for seriousness and complexity, out in front of where the Beatles or almost any of the competition were in early 1965..."

Super Hot Stamper

The Kinks
Misfits

  (Item #: kinksmisfi_1802_1812) 

Our Price: $49.99

  • With seriously good Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on both sides, this was one of the better copies we heard in our recent Misfits shootout
  • Quite a bit richer and tubier than most of what we auditioned, qualities that helped the acoustic-guitar-based tracks work their magic
  • The big hit here was Rock and Roll Fantasy and it sounds every bit as good as you hope it would
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The Kinks became arena rockers with Sleepwalker, and its follow-up, Misfits, follows in the same vein, but it's a considerable improvement on its predecessor...Misfits is a moving record that manages to convey deep emotions while rocking hard. The Kinks hadn't made a record this good since Muswell Hillbillies."

The Kinks - Lola Versus Powerman...

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: kinkslolav_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

EXCELLENT SOUND ON BOTH SIDES, A+++ for the first and A++ for the second -- I don't remember ever hearing a better copy! This is the first copy to make it to the site in over three years, and there were only a small handful to hit the site before that. It's hard to find clean early Kinks pressings, and it's much tougher to find ones like this that actually sound good!

Now this obviously ain't the best sounding album in the world, but this copy sure sounds better than the ones we played it against. The sound is lively, clean, transparent and natural. Most importantly, it sounds CORRECT.

The Kinks - Something Else

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: kinkssomet_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Original Reprise Tri-Color Steamboat Label pressing is one of the best sounding Kinks records we’ve ever had the pleasure of playing here at Better Records. It sounds nothing like the typically dull and smeary domestic Kinks LPs we are used to hearing. The overall sound is lively, musical, and natural. Drop the needle on No Return for wonderful sound and music -- it’s got a bit of a Jobim vibe.

The Kinks

Get Back Heavy Vinyl Debunked

  (Item #: kinks_get_back) 



Sonic Grade: F

HALL OF SHAME PRESSINGS, EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM

Some of the worst sound I have ever heard on Heavy Vinyl. The average cassette sounds better than these vinyl pieces of crap.
