About Everybody's in Show-Biz [Bonus Tracks]

Everybody's in Show-Biz is the tenth studio album released by English rock group The Kinks, released in 1972. A double album, the first disc features studio recordings, while the second disc documents a two-night Carnegie Hall stand. Everybody's in Show-Biz is often seen by fans as a transition album for The Kinks, marking the change in Ray Davies' songwriting style toward more theatrical, campy and vaudevillian work, as evidenced by the rock-opera concept albums that followed it. This album marks Davies' explorations of the trials of rock-star life and the monotony of touring, themes that would reappear in future releases like The Kinks Present A Soap Opera and the 1987 live album Live: The Road. On 3 June 2016, a Legacy Edition was released, with disc 1 containing the original stereo album (studio and live tracks) and disc 2 containing bonus tracks including previously unreleased live tracks from the Carnegie Hall concerts, alternate mixes and studio outtakes. (Disc 2 tracks 6-10 were recorded on the other night of the two-night Carnegie Hall stand; Disc 2 track 14 is a previously-unreleased outtake; and Disc 2 tracks 1 and 12 are the same as those bonus tracks on the 1998 reissue.
