PBender Records wrote an excellent review of what I consider the greatest Pop-Rock album of all time. I bought a mono pressing on Reprise the day it came out and have listened to it hundreds of times since. It didn't sell, as the Kinks were entering a period where none of their records did. Try to find a mono mix on vinyl, as the "stereo" version eliminates the backing vocals on Rainy Day In June, makes the drums annoyingly loud on Holiday In Waikiki. and introduces the electric guitar too soon on Little Miss Queen of Darkness, ruining the build-up to when it's introduced after Avory's excellent drum solo on the mono version. And the "stereo" version really isn't. Just a lot of echo. Like all Kinks records up to and including this album, buy mono. And yes, it is better than Rubber Soul, Aftermath and -- although I love it -- The Who Sell out, which is pretty much a comedy album, and a very clever one. One reviewer described Face To Face as "pithy little tales of a decadent, class-crazed England". An accurate summation.

This was a revolutionary record for the time. People forget that all the artists of this era were listening to each others work and being inspired by the interesting directions each were taking. You can hear the influence this album had on many of the top recording act of the time. This record fits in nicely with Rubber Soul, Aftermath and The Who sell-out. I personally rate it as high as Rubber Soul and certainly more consistent then Aftermath. Where Ray and Dave Davies differ from their contemporaries was to start writing songs that were grounded in real people stories and understandable narratives. While the other artists were either still writing about love or trying to get "Far out" picture-scape lyrics the Kinks were singing about entitlement, ill-begotten wealth and contemplating the meaning and loss of time. The music is solid from start to finish. The songs cover a wide range of rock 'n roll styles from the straight ahead rockers "Party line" and "House in the Country" to the pensive thinkers "Too much on my mind" and "I'll remember." This may be the great album you have yet to discover.
Vinyl Note: I have listen to the U.S. Mono and Stereo vinyl and on the same receiver with a high end CD player the vinyl mix blows the CD out of the water. Not sure why they can't mix things correctly anymore, but the vinyl sounds very different and well balanced. I would give the rating an extra star for the original vinyl version.

I own this album since 1966 when it was released. Mine is a Dutch pressing by Negram.
The strange thing is that side B starts with "Sunny Afternoon" so B6 = B1 on my record.
Does anybody experience the same phenomena or am I the only one?
Also the lables on my record are mixed, so the lable of side A is on Side B and vice versa.

I don't have the time to submit a new release for this but I just wanted to clarify something about this album so my fellow record collectors do not accidentally rip each other off.

The issue of this album (and Something Else and Arthur) that came out on Record Store Day were numbered 1 - 500 in the box on the top right of the back cover. These albums have since bee re-released (also on colored vinyl, at least the copies I have are on colored vinyl) by Sanctuary, but with no numbers in that box. These re-releases are exactly the same as the RSD one only not numbered and they are readily available, your local record store should be able to order you one.

I work at a record store in Berkeley California and we have a few copies and more on the way and the guy who orders these things for us told me they are "in-print." I paid about $30 each for the copies of Face to Face and Something Else, so don't feel you need to pay top dollar for a "not-numbered" copy because your local record store should have these available or be able to order you one!

Dearest Kinks fans who have first presses, could you check your treasures and add "matrix/runout" info to the first "Face To Face" Pye presses submissions for comparing with others. I understand that this proposition is not to the orthodox sellers. But thanks for always.
