The Kinks rate two Post 71 Extras!
First up is the spring 72 double-lp annotated by that Konsumate Kinks Konnoisseur, John Mendelsohn (full liner notes at the Kinda Kinks website listed below). Besides some familiar hits, there are B-sides galore. This was followed a year later by The Great Lost Kinks Album (more rarities and a copy of which you should have on your shelf, too).

Next up is a half live/half studio release. The live stuff (from March 72 at Carnegie Hall) is pretty good, and the studio side contains songs about life on the road. It also features the classic Celluloid Heroes (the prime reason for its being here).
