Vinyl LP! Includes Full Lyrics!
Sung in the Spirit of Great Radio Hits of the late Fifties, early Sixties!
Vintage Sound Appeal!


Big Station has a vintage ’60s and ’70s feel!

"The album is full of diverse musical and production notions ranging from the Clash's Sandinista! to records by Tinariwen, Rachid Taha, Lou Reed, and Mink DeVille, but bear Escovedo's own indelible signature. Visconti's predilection for enormous basslines, female backing choruses, handclaps, and tight rhythm sections is readily evident; it adds to the album's pleasure factor by ten." - Thom Jurek, allmusic.com

"...His 11th solo LP, Big Station, the followup to his 2010 album Street Songs of Love. 'Man of the World,' the album's first single, is a spunky song that explores the struggles faced by a cosmopolitan man. 'Man of the World was written in the spirit of the great radio hits of the late Fifties, early Sixties by artists like the Who, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent,' says Escovedo. 'The lyrics are a humorous take on a man of the world.'" - Rolling Stone

"The great Mexican-American roots-rocker Alejandro Escovedo is back with yet another great, hard rocking yet deeply thoughtful album, his second with veteran producer Tony Visconti. Visconti goes all the way back to David Bowie's epic The Man Who Sold the World and if you hear echoes of that album on some tracks here, like the haunting background voices on "Sally Was a Cop", the album's most powerful song, it's not a coincidence." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, Music 9/11, Sound 9/11!
