Description

If the short-lived but fondly remembered Big Star could have experienced popular success in direct proportion to its posthumous influence, the rangy Memphis rock quartet would have lived up to its ambitious name, and then some. With the possible exception of the Velvet Underground, no other underground pop band has left such a lasting and indelible legacy. Taking the gritty soul of Memphis rhythm and blues and fusing it with the artful melodies and vocal harmonies of British power pop, and injecting it all with a flailing, pre-punk, garage-band energy, Big Star created a unique sound with a potentially universal appeal. Pressed on 45RPM 2LP, this new 'Best Of' compilation celebrates the founding fathers of power pop with 16 tracks spanning all three of their LPs (1972's #1 Record, 1974's Radio City and Third, released after the group disbanded). Includes rare single versions of some of their most popular songs, plus new liner notes.
