Playlist: The Very Best of Big Star (1972-2005)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
Playlist: The Very Best of Big Star features 14 tracks from guitarist and singer Alex Chilton's pioneering power pop combo, from their 1972 debut album #1 Record to the 2005 reunion effort In Space. Seven of the 14 selections first appeared on Columbia: Live at Missouri University, which documents a 1993 reunion show that was Big Star's first live date in 18 years, with Chilton and drummer Jody Stephens joined by Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer from the Posies. Rehearsal tapes and songs from the albums #1 Record, Radio City, and Third/Sister Lovers fill out this idiosyncratic overview of one of the most influential cult acts of the 1970s.
