The Kinks To Reissue Muswell Hillbillies,’ ‘Everybody’s In Show-Biz – Everybody’s A Star’

The Kinks will reissue Muswell Hillbillies in celebration of its 50th anniversary along with the record’s 1972 part-live-album successor Everybody’s In Show-Biz – Everybody’s A Star.

The deluxe box set, which will be released on September 9, will feature newly remastered versions of both albums on both vinyl and CD, as well as 11 new remixes courtesy of co-founder Ray Davies. The expanded versions will have added bonus content such as a hardback book, a Kinks ‘London Roots map’ and printed memorabilia.

“Now with a new record company and a new image, I could bring some of the old wild western spirit into my music,” Davies said.

“These albums capture the re-emergence of the Kinks as a touring band.” Dave Davies added. “Muswell Hillbillies is one-of my favourite Kinks albums. It’s a bit of a backstory to the Davies family and the characters involved.”

Muswell Hillbillies is the tenth studio album by the Kinks. Released in November 1971, it was the band’s first album for RCA Records. The album is named after the Muswell Hill area of North London, where band leader Ray Davies and guitarist Dave Davies grew up and the band formed in the early 1960s.
