Two LP set of 21 tracks of this classic early Kinks album, Everybody's In Showbiz. From the opening track of Here Comes Yet Another Day till the legendary closer of Lola, the long time fans will reminiscence about past Kinks shows worthy of revival on stage with their props and antics and new listeners will be hooked with the Brits' twist on life through their music. The Kinks were an English Pop /Rock group formed in 1963, and categorised in the US as a British Invasion band. Despite being less commercially successful than their contemporaries, the Kinks are sometimes cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.

"At least the the live half of the CD At Carnegie Hall has feeling...It is pretty clear the Kinks were having a ball and so were the audience listening to the classics of the highly regarded Muswell Hillbilly album whose songs were an insightful view of mental stability in the 20th century...Alcohol,Paranooia etc. all included..The Muswell studio CD is indeed a classic and worth it's weight in gold,these live performances were originally the 2nd LP of the album and the CD presented here is one great long affair, half studio half live and it all flows together well.
The opening half is a collection of top rate songs chronicling Life and it's problems on and off the road.Celluloid Heroes,Sitting In My Hotel,Supersonic Rocket Ship all rate as some of the Kinks most finese moments laid down in the studio..An added bonus are the bonus tracks, additional live songs of the same performance not on the vinyl release."
First Kinks album I ever bought...

"Thirty years ago this was the first Kinks album I ever bought. It was love at first listen. A 2-record set, one live and one studio. It's great that it can all fit onto one CD. The studio album includes the classic "Celluloid Heroes" and my favorite "Sitting In My Hotel" in which Ray reflects about what all his friends would think he was trying to prove "riding in his chauffeur driven jam jar dressed in satin strides and two-tone daisy roots". Every other song is fantastic with much of Ray's sardonic wit and his keen insights into, well, mostly food. Then it gets even better. The live album is a blast. It includes great versions of "Top Of The Pops, Acute Schizohenia Paranoia Blues, Muswell Hillbilly, Alcohol, Lola and Till The End Of The Day" plus covers of the "Banana Boat Song and Baby Face". 23 songs in all. In addition you get great liner notes and quotes from each of the band members (separately of course). Plus two bonus tracks that weren't on the album. I am willing to bet that huge amounts of alcohol and junk food were consumed in the making of this gem."
