This 1/2 studio, 1/2 live album by the Kinks shows the band in transition from their Rock/Americana/Brit period of Lola and Muswell Hillbillies to their more mid 70's rock opera stuff (of which I am not a huge fan). Showbiz finds the Kinks in top form full of wit, humor, and introspection. One could almost consider this their first rock opera album of that aforementioned period. There are lots of songs about the band's crazy uprooted lifestyle as a touring act and has a very vaudeville-type feel to it. It is chalk full of memorable new songs and great rockin' versions of early 70s Kinks with a brass band. After this album, the Kinks went off further down the rock opera rabbit hole and seemed to forget about creating albums that were actually fun to listen to. Everybody's in Showbiz marks the end of the classic 70s era for this Kinks fan. A highly recommended album.
