Everybody's In Showbiz

LP (Item 567712) RCA, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
An overlooked gem from The Kinks – a set that's got all the wit of their late 60s material, a bit of the rootsy currents of Muswell Hillbillies, and a lot more bite than the group would have in some of their next few albums to come! Ray Davies' pen is razor-sharp, as is his vocal approach – and the songs are maybe even more gritty than the group would have done a few years before – furthered by some of the instrumental currents that also bring in a few acoustic elements and some Americanized riffs, which are then also matched by an occasional twang in Ray's vocal presentation. Plus, the double-length set also features one album of studio material, and a second live album – almost as a "bonus" thrown in for good measure. Studio tracks include the hit "Celluloid Heroes", plus "Here Comes Yet Another Day", "Maximum Constipation", "Unreal Reality", "Hot Potatoes", "Motorway", and "Supersonic Rocket Ship" – and live cuts include "Skin & Bone", "Alcohol", "Banana Boat Song", "Lola", "Holiday", and "Mr Wonderful".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange label stereo pressing. Cover has light ringwear and some wear and fading at the spine.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Kinda Kinks
Reprise, 1965. Near Mint-
It's hard to go wrong with The Kinks at this point in their career – a time when even at their most basic, the group had something special that set them apart from most of their contemporaries! There's a definite bluesy undercurrent to most of the music here – an aspect that Ray Davies ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
One of the oddest of the 70s concept albums by The Kinks – a set of tracks that takes Ray Davies and the band back to the school days of their youth – where they revisit frustrations, anger, and the disgrace in the title! The best moments here are the ones that unlock a bit of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Educated Homegrown
RCA, 1970. Near Mint-
A record that will reward your patience, if you can make it through the mediocre blues rock and psychedelia light that pollutes the entire first side of this record, leading you to believe it won't live up to the promise of the groovy cover image. By the time you make it to the second side, you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album

Changes One
RCA, 1976. Very Good+

Matthew Fisher

I'll Be There
RCA, 1974. Near Mint-
Mighty nice solo work from Matthew Fisher – a record that really has him finding his voice as a solo act, on his own after leaving Procol Harum – still using keyboards as strongly as he did in that group, but also coming across as a strong singer too! Fisher has a surprisingly soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
