Amoeba Review

The hugely well-respected and historically important Kinks seventh studio album Arthur Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire has been newly remastered and reissued for its 50th anniversary. 'Rock musical' in style and one of the most effective concept albums in rock history, the album was constructed by Kinks' frontman Ray Davies as the soundtrack to a subsequently cancelled Granada Television play. This 4CD + 4 7" singles box set features newly remastered stereo and mono versions of the original Arthur album from HD sources, and includes 5 previously unreleased tracks and 28 previously unreleased versions, along with a book of essays, new interviews, band photos, and more.
