Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Pt. 1 (Deluxe CD)

[ ADA / Warner / 2 CD ]

Release Date: Friday 11 December 2020

Kinks - Lola versus Powerman and The Moneygoround, Part One, commonly abbreviated to Lola Versus Powerman, or just Lola, is the eighth studio album by British rock band the Kinks, recorded and released in 1970. A concept album, it is a satirical appraisal of the music industry, including song publishers, unions, the press, accountants, business managers, and life on the road.

Although it appeared during a transitional period for the Kinks, Lola Versus Powerman was a success both critically and commercially for the group, charting in the Top 40 in America and helping restore them in the public eye, making it a "comeback" album. It contained two hit singles: 'Lola', which reached the #9 US, #2 UK and Germany - becoming the Kinks' biggest success since 'Sunny Afternoon' in 1966 - and 'Apeman', which peaked at #5 in the UK and Germany. The track 'Lola', written by Ray Davies, allegedly details a romantic encounter between a young man and a possible trans-gender person whom he meets in a club in Soho, London.

Deluxe 2CD: Contains the original album new remaster from original HD master tapes plus alternate mono / stereo versions & mixes, new remixes, live and film tracks. Extended booklet with comprehensive notes, new band quotes, rare photos & memorabilia.
