In 1977, the superstar Kinks embarked on an incredible musical journey which surely was developing into the most successful era of their four decade career. Thanks in part to their first Arista Records smash album Sleepwalker, Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Mick Avory and John Dalton expanded their early 70's sound into a unique brand of album oriented rock and storytelling like no other legacy band at the time. With nine solid new rockers like the autobiographical Life On The Road and smash singles like Juke Box Music and the stellar title track Sleepwalker, the entire Lp seemed like a greatest hits album at the time due to the way rock radio was so receptive to this tremendous new masterwork from The Kinks. Filled with even more favorites like Mr. Big Man, Sleepless Night and Life Goes On, the Rock Hall Of Famers' The Kinks truly delivered one of the most important albums of the classic rock era with the brilliant Sleepwalker. Therefore it is with much pleasure to announce the first in a lengthy reissue program with our first installment in The Kinks/ Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their 1977 groundbreaking hit Lp Sleepwalker.
