Additional info1972 UK Pressed RCA label 21-track 2LP Set - conceptually set up as an album circling the dilemmas of the everyday rock star life and the tedious monotony of being on the road... and an album taken from the road... recorded during a two night stand at Carnegie Hall, New York City, NY, 2 - 3 March 1972.

'Everybody's In Show-Biz...' has been labelled '...a charmingly loose, rowdy, silly record.', and 'the drunkest album ever made" by Allmusics Stephen T. Erlewine. The album wears towards more eccentric and 'theatrical, campy and vaudevillian work, as evidenced by the rock-opera concept albums that followed it.'*
'Everybody's In Show-Biz...' features the 1972 singles 'Supersonic Rocket Ship' and 'Celluloid Heroes'.

Vinyl has the generic orange company labels - with vertical outline 'RCA' and horizontal solid 'Victor' texts to the far left and right of centre hole respectively.

Vinyl has machine stamped (ms) and handetched (he) matrix information:
Side 1: BGBS 1024 - 1E A1AK
Side 2: BGBS 1025 - 1E A2M
Side 3: BGBS 1026 - 1E A2B
Side 4: BGBS 1027 - 1E AIX
