Kinks Tidal Masters

These are sounding seriously good. The Kinks never had the recording resources the Beatles had which is why I thought their CDs sounded so poor. The masters on Tidal certainly are a vast improvement.

Really enjoying making an MQA Kinks Greatest Hits Playlist.



Just playing Waterloo Sunset and it does sound really fresh in MQA. S WM BO is just singing along…lol taste test…

They do sound great. I used to collect The Kinks on vinyl despite the almost always disappointing sound quality. Selling those off probably paid for a few years of Tidal, heh. No regrets.

BTW—and hoping to not start any format wars here!—these are available as 24/96 on HDTracks for any who prefer that or would like to compare.

It’s a pity there isn’t a singles collection as quite a few of their classics were not original album tracks and these seem to be the original albums not the various expanded ones Sanctuary did over the years.

Not remastered like the other albums though, which is I think what @Sloop_John_B was getting at.
