The Kinks - Everybody’s In Show-Biz (Legacy Edition) album review

Album Review

Stinking underwear and sublime uncertainty for Ray Davies’s on-the-road record.

It wasn’t so much violating groupies with seafood and “Hello, Cleveland!” on Kinks tours, it seems, as grotty pants, motorway diets and ragged country yearnings for the Hot Potatoes of home. With one eye on Tommy and the other on Ziggy Stardust, 1972’s Everybody’s In Show-Biz marked Ray Davies’s transition from Britain’s finest purveyor of vaudevillian pop whimsy to concept rock also-ran.
