  • Limited Edition Gatefold Vinyl
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Sunstone Records are proud to present a limited vinyl press of the second album ‘The Greatest Show on Earth‘ by our favourite, North Lakes troubadours Kontiki Suite.

    After initially approaching the band as fans this is the realisation of something incredibly special - their 2012 debut ‘On Sunset Lake’ was and still is a favourite and to be involved in the follow up is a majestic feeling – musically and lyrically it feels like a follow up to the debut with
    added colour and swagger: think Byrds / Emitt Rhodes / Brewer and Shipley / Beachwood Sparks / Teenage Fanclub

    The LP will be housed in a wonderful Luke Insect designed gatefold with a free digital download. This is the sound of deep Northern England and the bands love of melody, harmony, country rock and psychedelia takes us to the next level of their trip.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Greatest Show On Earth via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Can't sleep tonight
Too much for my eyes and ears
From the night before
Had a front row seat
To the greatest show on earth
I've been here before

'Cause all that we need is around

We were racing against time
But it was close across the line
Call it a draw
From me to you, I love you too
My empire of good fortune grows
All down to you

'Cause all that we need is around
There's nothing you can say to bring us down
'Cause all that we need is around
They're never gonna bring our empire down

A sight you can't get tired of
The beautiful adventure
Can I take you there
Take my hand, come with me
See the sun rise up completely
Breathe that country air

'Cause all that we need is around
There's nothing you can say to bring us down
'Cause all that we need is around
They're never gonna bring our empire down

Please don't save me 'cause
Who'll watch over me then
If you think I'm saved you might move on from here
Failed to remember but I did not forget
The smoke was rising from those embers
Those years ago
When I first met you
You stole my soul
