Hearing this single made me first realise that there was much more to The Kinks than was indicated by their previous 2 singles ( I never heard the first 2 at the time ) and Ray Davies just grew and grew into one of the great songwriters of the 60's. Glad to see he's still going strong!
Delighted to just get hold of this one in a job-lot of 15 Kinks' singles for £15.00. Also included the forgotten classic 'Sweet Lady Genevieve', along with some more common ones such as 'Waterloo Sunset', 'Lola', 'Supersonic Rocket Ship' and 'Death of a clown'. All in EX condition too. Think I've had a bargain! :)

Yes, your copy is an export - and currently without pictures on 45cat. I have seen the export copies in the Dutch picture sleeve - did you find your with the picture sleeve or just the standard company sleeve?Comment by progrocker5602:
I own a copy with "Made in England" printed on both sides of the center. Can someone tell something about this release? (English Export-copy for the Dutch market?)
Going back to the Pete vs. Ray feud, the hard feelings on Pete's part must have lingered a bit. About 15 years ago a friend visited Pete in Canada and got several Kinks LPs signed, one of which was The Kinks Greatest Hits on Reprise. He gave this LP to me. In addition to signing it Pete drew devil's horns and a beard on the picture of Ray.
While "She's Got Everything" may have its problems Deep Purple must have liked something about it since they stole its riff for "Women from Tokyo".
