Production[edit] The album was recorded immediately after the return of the group from an Asian tour, and was completed and released within two weeks.[1][2][3] Consequently, the production was rushed and, according to Ray Davies, the band was not completely satisfied with the final cuts.[2][3] Due to record company pressure, however, no time was available to fix certain flaws present in the mix. Ray Davies
Ray Davies
has expressed his dissatisfaction towards the production not being up to par. Commenting on this, he said: "A bit more care should have been taken with it. I think (producer) Shel Talmy went too far in trying to keep in the rough edges. Some of the double tracking on that is appalling. It had better songs on it than the first album, but it wasn't executed in the right way. It was just far too rushed."[citation needed] Releases[edit] It was released by Pye in the UK on 5 March 1965, and by Reprise in the USA on 11 August 1965. The US release had a rearranged track listing and repackaged cover. Several tracks were removed, and the single "Set Me Free", released two months after the UK issue of Kinda Kinks, was unique to the album's US release. In the UK, the album was only released in mono; no stereo mix was made. The single "Tired of Waiting for You" was a #1 hit on the UK Singles Charts.[4] The album itself hit #3 on the UK Album

Charts.[4] "Wonder Where My Baby Is Tonight" was released as a single in Norway and Sweden in 1966, backed with "I Need You", reaching 7 on the Swedish charts.[5] Legacy[edit] Bruce Eder, in a restrospective summary for AllMusic, wrote that the album was uneven, but that "...what was first-rate was also highly memorable, and what wasn't also wasn't bad." They also made note of some maturing in Ray Davies's songwriting.[2] Track listing[edit] All songs written by Ray Davies, except as indicated. UK Release[edit]
