Big Star #1 Record 180g LP 

Big Star's legacy has long outlasted its short tenure as a band. Led by ex-Box Tops singer Alex Chilton and including Chris Bell (vocals, guitar), Andy Hummel (bass) and Jody Stephens (drums), the group's inspired mixture of ‘60s pop, powered interplay and irresistible melody was exciting and special: it was out of step with the mainstream rock sounds of 1972. 
 
Though Chilton had come off of a #1 blue-eyed soul hit, the Box Tops' "The Letter," Big Star's music was a glorious mesh of British-influenced pop, Byrds-esque harmonies, taut edginess and studio expertise. Traces of the Beatles, the Kinks and Badfinger pulsate through their repertoire.
 
The band's debut album, #1 Record, flew in the face of 1972's abounding folk-rock and progressive-rock sounds. The album's greatness was not lost on rock critics of the day, but in the end it did not sell particularly well, attributed in part to the piecemeal distribution network of Ardent's distributor, Stax. Still, songs like "In the Street," "Don't Lie to Me, "Feel" and "The Ballad of El Goodo" became cult classics.
 
The seminal debut album from the quintessential American power pop band is now reissued on 180 gram vinyl courtesy of 4 Men With Beards. The LP includes faithfully restored sleeve and label art including UV coating for the cover which duplicates the original Ardent album release.
