Rare Big Star Tracks on 12" Vinyl for the First Time!

Out of print since 2015, this special EP now returns...on 12" vinyl!

Originally recorded for Big Star's iconic Third, "Jesus Christ" has become a holiday staple. What better way to celebrate this time of year than to experience this classic track on vinyl - along with the gift of rare material!

This collectible 12" EP features the Three Wise Men artwork from a 1973 Big Star promo poster. In addition to the original album version of its namesake, the audio program features a demo of "Jesus Christ" which first appeared on the Grammy®-winning box set Keep an Eye on the Sky, as well as five rare tracks.

Fans have been clamoring for an official release of "Another Time Another Place & You" for decades, and it made its first-ever appearance on this EP when Omnivore first issued it as a limited 2015 Black Friday/Record Store Day 10" EP, along with a TV mix of Third's "Thank You Friends." Two more unissued instrumentals joined them. All four of these tracks were mixed in 2012 for use in the acclaimed documentary Nothing Can Hurt Me. A demo version of "Big Black Car" (the studio version also appears on Third) completes the playlist.

The legacy of Big Star continues to shine, and the Jesus Christ EP will make a glowing addition to any fan's collection and will provide them with not only what they've been searching for, but make them rejoice in what they've found.
