The Last Assembly

The Kinks "Mister Pleasant" / "This Is Where I Belong" [Pye, 7N 17314], 4/1967.⁠

Feeling very pleasant after a nice upgrade of this Swedish PS. As usual, the record is pressed in Norway.⁠

A not entirely known but completely fantastic b-side. For those of you who have not heard "This Is Where I Belong", I am posting a video in the biography. And for you who get a sudden urge to hear it again.⁠ Play it loud!
