Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One
Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One is a concept album by British rock band The Kinks, recorded and released in 1970. The album 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.

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. Read more on Last.fm.
