180g 45rpm Vinyl Double LP!
One of Rock's Most Influential Bands!

Though Big Star were only active for a handful of years in the early – mid '70s, the Memphis group has gone on to become one of the most influential bands in modern music, with a cult status that few can compete with. This new compilation celebrates the founding fathers of power pop with 16 tracks spanning all 3 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.

"The band continues to see interest bubbling up from those that have a love of music both near and far. For those that keep hearing about big Star...but were afraid to ask...this is a nice glimpse into the life cycle of our output in the '70s. While the band no longer exists, the music that Alex, Chris, Andy and I originally made together under the auspices of John Fry still calls a community of those of us with like minds to come together and have fun with it." - Jody Stephens, February 2017
