About the album: First released in August 1972, Everybody's In Show-Biz was The Kinks' tenth studio album, arriving within a year of the acclaimed Muswell Hillbillies (the group's debut album for RCA Records). The original double-LP Everybody's In Show-Biz contained a complete studio album (which premiered the all-time Kinks classic "Celluloid Heroes" among other tracks) and a live disc chronicling The Kinks' Carnegie Hall appearance in March 1972. The new Legacy Edition of Everybody's In Show-Biz includes the original double album in its entirety alongside a third LP with previously unissued studio sessions outtakes (recorded for the album in 1972) and live material (recorded March 2-3, 1972 during The Kinks' triumphant Carnegie Hall concert run).

Girls, if you get lonely Dial 4-2-4-6-8-9 Well, girls, if you get lonely Dial 4-2-4-6-8-9 And your troubles will be over I'll even give you back you dime Oh yeah
