How is it that this tightly-packed Ronco LP sounds so bloody good ?

On my version of this the labels for side 1 and side 2 are the same, both are the label for side 1.?

Pictures in the Sand is backing track only but is still the same take as you can hear Dave yelling in the background.

Song LOLA is CHERRY COLA version.
From Wiki: The song was released in the United Kingdom on June 12, 1970, while in the United States it was released on June 28, 1970. Commercially, the single reached number two on the UK Singles Chart[2] and number nine on the Billboard Hot 100.[3] However, due to its controversial subject matter and use of the brand name Coca-Cola, the single received backlash and even bans in Britain and Australia. Despite this, the track has since become one of The Kinks' most iconic and popular songs...

This set is of interest for fans because of the extra mini album containing some unreleased material:
C1 Misty Water (This one we know from The Great Lost Kinks Album, but it is a diffrerent mix!)
C2 Pictures In The Sand (Also known from The Great Lost Kinks Album)
C3 Spotty Grotty Anna (This was something entirely new in 1983. A 1968 rehearsal)
D1 Groovy Movies (A Dave Davies track from his then unreleased solo album; also a slightly different mix)
D2 Time Will Tell (Like 'Spotty Grotty Anna' something entirely new in 1983: An outtake from ca 1965)
D3 Rosemary Rose (Also known from The Great Lost Kinks Album)

Ray and Dave Davies immediately took action and the album was pulled from the shops. This makes the album very rare, although all of the abovementioned tracks have turned up on reissued albums as bonus tracks and on boxed sets.

For those who care. Sound quality is very good. The drawback - this CD is a 'sticky nimbus'.
