LOLA VS POWERMAN

LOLA VS POWERMAN (HK)
Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One is the eighth studio album by British rock band The Kinks, recorded and released in 1970. a concept album, it is a satirical look at the various facets of the music industry, including song publishers, unions, the press, accountants, business managers, and the road. Musically Lola Versus Powerman is varied, drawing on the genres of folk, hard rock, and traditional British music hall. This 2-CD expanded edition comes with deluxe packaging containing Mono and Stereo mixes as well as unreleased material, and alternative versions all re-mastered from original tapes by well-known Kinks archivist Andrew Sandoval. The booklet was designed by award winning art director Phil Smee and comes packed with rare and unreleased images from the era. Includes previously unreleased content on Disc One, tracks 14-20 and disc two tracks 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, and 23. 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 Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround a "comeback" album. It contained two hit singles: "Lola", which reached the top 10 in the US and UK, and "Apeman", which peaked at number five in the UK. Lola Versus Powerman was well-received throughout the British music press. a review in New Musical Express called "[Ray] Davies... one of the finest writers in contemporary rock, " and praised the record's British styles and originality. Melody Maker's interpretation of Lola Versus Powerman was Davies "taking a cheeky nibble" at the pop music business; they continued that "The music's pure Kinks simplicity-but it works."
