Travelin' CDs, North Carolina Fall 2016-- Part 5: A Soap Opera

A SOAP OPERA (Or, THE KINKS PRESENT A SOAP OPERA)  By the KINKS

This was a 1975 concept album, the 13th made by the group.

According to the Wikipedia article, the plot went like this.  A musician named Starmaker changed places with an ordinary guy and this is the story of how he found life in the regular world was like.

And, there were a lot of really great songs (none of which I had ever heard before).  Sure enjoyed it.

I especially liked "Everybody's a Star (Starmaker)," "Holiday Romance" and "You Can't Stop the Music."
