Sunny Afternoon is the second UK budget-priced compilation album by British rock group the The Kinks released in 1967. The album consists of some of the most popular singles and b-sides released by the Kinks from 1965 and 1966. It also includes a cover of "Louie Louie", originally from the 1964 Kinksize Session EP and the track "Such A Shame" from the 1965 Kwyet Kinks EP.
Released two months after the classic studio album Something Else by The Kinks, which itself only managed 2 weeks on the UK charts peaking at #35, this budget compilation sold much better, spending 11 weeks on the chart and reaching #9.
The album was issued on CD in 2001 as part of the Marble Arch Years boxed set.
All songs written and composed by Ray Davies except "Louie Louie".
