High Priest/Black List

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
1987's High Priest was Alex Chilton's first full-length studio album since the fascinatingly disastrous Like Flies on Sherbert in 1979. While it certainly wasn't the return to pure-pop form some fans were hoping for from the former leader of Big Star, it at least showed Chilton to be in firm command of his faculties again, and fronting a solid band of Memphis/New Orleans studio heavyweights. High Priest boasted only four original songs from Chilton, the best being the mildly sleazy "Thing for You" though the just-plain-weird "Dalai Lama" has a certain perverse charm, but he dug up a handful of worthwhile covers, including the good-and-greasy "Make a Little Love" and a fine,...

1987's High Priest was Alex Chilton's first full-length studio album since the fascinatingly disastrous Like Flies on Sherbert in 1979. While it certainly wasn't the return to pure-pop form some fans were hoping for from the former leader of Big Star, it at least showed Chilton to be in firm command of his faculties again, and fronting a solid band of Memphis/New Orleans studio heavyweights. High Priest boasted only four original songs from Chilton, the best being the mildly sleazy "Thing for You" though the just-plain-weird "Dalai Lama" has a certain perverse charm, but he dug up a handful of worthwhile covers, including the good-and-greasy "Make a Little Love" and a fine, obscure Carole King number, "Let Me Get Close to You." While Chilton's vocals betray a certain inscrutable irony, he's in fine voice throughout, and his wildly underrated guitar work is very much in evidence. Black List, a six-song EP Chilton released in 1989, is featured on this CD release as a bonus; it works on the same level as High Priest, only with six songs instead of 12. It does include that modern rarity, a noteworthy original Alex Chilton song "Guantanamerika," a witty meditation on right-wing politics and Tammy Faye Bakker and a solid version of the R&B chestnut "I Will Turn You Money Green." In addition, Razor and Tie have dug up unreleased tunes from the sessions for each record that, for a change, are actually worth hearing; "Magnetic Field," a leftover from Black List, is a frantic old-school rocker written by Chilton, while his superb cover of Charlie Rich's "Lonely Weekends" is an outtake from High Priest that's better than most of what made the cut.
