Come Dancing with the Kinks: The Best of 1977-1986. This single was released several months later in North America, with the A-side and B-side reversed. "A Well Respected Man" was originally released (September 1965) in the UK on the 45rpm 7" EP Kwyet Kinks which was not eligible for the UK singles chart. "You Really Got Me" was reissued for its 40th anniversary as a replica of the original Pye 2 track 7" single and a CD single which added rarity "Misty Water".

The hits that The Kinks scored in the '60s are the stuff of legend, but in America, the band's '70s-'80s stint on Arista Records was actually a bigger commercial success. This collection, named for the nostalgic 1983 hit "Come Dancing," captures highlights from that fertile period. Low Budget" and "(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman" are wry time capsules from the economic malaise of the late '70s, while early-'80s tunes like "Do It Again" and "Better Things" rim with hard-won hope for a brighter future

A scintillating remaster of a terrific collection of songs, "Come Dancing" sounds glorious ), this disc collates their later period. As you'll see, however, they manage to "cover" their earlier hits as well. They have a number of killer singles here, opening with "Come Dancing". The Kinks have always excelled in bringing witty little 'slices of life' to their tunes, in a way we didn't see until the earlier Squeeze records.
