1979 was a banner year for U.K.superstars The Kinks with their conceptual smash album Low Budget. A precursor to a soon to be Kinks arena rock revolution,Low Budget was an extravaganza on many historic levels. As a major rock album sold to millions worldwide, the Lp soared in the pop and rock charts, thanks to the inclusion of hit singles like (Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman.
This smash single along with more radio and retail hits like Catch Me Now I'm Falling, Pressure and the amazing title track Low Budget, delievered The Kinks into gold and platinum territory and forever etched the word superstars to The Kinks.
Featuring the superstar line-up of Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Mick Avory and Jim Rodford, The Kinks Low Budget would become one of their most loved and revered albums of all time.
