Preservation: Act 1 is a 1973 concept album by the English rock group the Kinks. It is their eleventh studio album. Preservation was not well received by critics and sold poorly (peaking on the Billboard 200 at No. 177), though the live performances of the material were much better received.

Overall a disappointing repress of a mixed album. The two Preservation acts were politically charged concept albums, both of which drew different opinions person to person. Some hated them, some loved them but most were nonplussed by them. The common view is that this is the stronger of the two, as the songs blend into each other and overall keeps the same pace throughout. Preservation part 2 has some good songs, but they really emphasized the political angle with spoken radio interruptions between songs which in part interrupt the flow and overall focused too much on the concept rather than the music.Anyway back to this pressing. Before buying this version I searched online to find out how it sounded, or any reviews of this pressing. However this being a Kinks album and one of their least popular my search came up with nothing. When buying this album I thought I'd go for the 180gram Velvel repress because I'd bought their "Everybody's in Showbiz" 180gram and it sounded great. However, when I played this record the first thing I noticed was the distortion, it's not overbearing but it is there and especially noticeable in the vocals. When playing the track "One of the Survivors" (a high point on the record) it skips in places. It should be noted I bought it NEW. Hopefully this was an individual issue with my copy rather than the entire pressing being this poor. One issue is that I have nothing to compare it to, no one I know owns it nor are there any videos on this pressing, so if anyone else owns it please let me know if it's a quality issue with the pressing or just me. Before buying this album on vinyl make sure you check the pressing quality because it could vary.The album I'd give a 3/5, but the pressing a 1/5.
