|The Kinks American chronology|
Kinks-Size is the second US-only album by the English band The Kinks, released in 1965. Differences in record company practice between the UK and US in the early 1960s, such as the US tending to issue shorter LPs, featuring less original material and the comparative unpopularity of EPs in the US all left US record companies with extra LPs worth of material (see also The Beatles and The Rolling Stones). In 1965, this meant, as well as versions of the two UK Kinks albums from that year, Reprise issued another two complete LPs - Kinks-Size and Kinkdom.
This was the Kinks' most successful album of the 1960s in the US (discounting Greatest Hits!), reaching #13.
The album takes its name and all four tracks from the UK Kinksize Session EP, adding two tracks left off the US version of their debut LP ("I'm a Lover Not a Fighter" and the instrumental "Revenge") and their two recent hit singles ("All Day and All of the Night" and "Tired of Waiting for You") and respective B-sides ("I Gotta Move" and "Come On Now").
