The Kinks / Everybody’s In Show-Biz deluxe 2CD and 3LP reissue


The Kinks‘ tenth studio album, Everybody’s In Show-Biz, will be reissued as a two-CD ‘Legacy Edition’ in June this year.

The 1972 follow-up to Muswell Hillbillies was originally issued as a double-LP with the first record featuring a new studio album and the second LP documenting the band’s two nights at Carnegie Hall in March 1972.

The new double-disc Legacy Edition of Everybody’s In Show-Biz includes this double album in its entirety, alongside a bonus CD featuring previously unissued studio sessions outtakes (recorded for the album in 1972) and more live material recorded during the Carnegie Hall concert run. A 3LP vinyl reissue will include some of this unheard material on a third bonus LP.

The Everybody’s In Show-Biz Legacy Edition will be issued on 3 June 2016.

No prices on the Amazon overseas links for the vinyl version?

Robert Fitzpatrick

just pre-ordered it from American Amazon. can’t wait for another add on to the Kinks Collection


Love the Kinks but the live tracks are really rough to hear, sounds like Ray just wanted to irritate his fans. Not sure I would really listen to an additional CD of them. But “Hot Potatoes” is glorious.


One of the many great Kinks albums, they don’t get the respect they deserve here in North America.


Amazon U.S. is selling the 2 cd set for $16. Compared to £25.00 in the U.K. that is a bargain.


Very good. My favorite Kinks song is Celluloid Heroes – one of the best of the 1970’s. Im looking forward to hearing all the live recordings.

It’s amazing that wasn’t actually a hit.

Paul Murphy

Nothing to do with the release, but don’t you think ‘Waterloo Sunset’ would make a great National Anthem? “And I don’t feel afraid… As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset I am in paradise…” – imagine 60,o00 voices singing that to the All Blacks, or the Brazil football team. Just a thought. Also, why no Sir Ray yet?


Not really, very good song but not living in or anywhere near London I never gaze on a Waterloo sunset. Stick with the Pistols and you won’t go far wrong (wouldn’t even have to change the title of the National Anthem either)!

Paul Murphy

Ah, but the devil is in the detail Stevie – Waterloo [Battle Of], one of England’s greatest victory’s.
