Legendary Big Star Performance on 2LP!

The gig poster read: "BIG STAR IN THEIR FAREWELL U.S. PERFORMANCE." Luckily, this iconic Memphis band's homecoming show was nothing of the kind. As Jody Stephens points out in his liner notes, "We played Los Angeles three days later and went on to play together for another 16 years. No one ever said anything about the poster."

Omnivore Recordings is proud to present Big Star's only known professionally filmed show in its entirety. Live In Memphis chronicles that October 29, 1994 performance on a 2-LP set. You will be in the New Daisy Theatre experiencing Big Star Live In Memphis!

The album contains Big Star classics like "Thank You Friends," "September Gurls," and "The Ballad Of El Goodo," Chris Bell's "I Am The Cosmos," and covers of T.Rex, The Kinks, Todd Rundgren and more, performed by Big Star: Alex Chilton, Jody Stephens, and Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow from The Posies..

...the band is tighter, stronger, better than they were on the somewhat tentative Columbia. Here, it's possible to hear the band gel--Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens found a balance with Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow, something that's obvious by the group's subsequent history, but on this spirited show you can hear the gears fall into place and that's worth the price of admission, perhaps more than once.
