The _#1 Record/Radio City_ CD contains, 1970s Power-Poppers, Big Star first two vinyl albums on one CD. Outside the Beatles, nobody has ever made better Power-Pop than Big Star. If you love the Beatles, you will love this guaranteed! Big Star's sound is kind of like a mix of Rubber Soul-era Beatles and Hard Days Night-era Beatles with the Who's Keith Moon drumming. The songs _September Gurls_, _Back Of A Car_, She's A Mover_, _Feel_, _In The Street, and _Don't Lie To Me_ are excellent rockers. The more gentle _You Get What You Deserve_, _Ballad Of El Goodo_, _Thirteen_, _Give Me Another Chance_, and _Try Again_ are beautiful ballads. These albums were released in 1973 and 1974, though I didn't discover them until 1994 which made me wonder why they are never publicized given how great they are? Get it; you'll be hooked!

C.D.'s given on Christmas can give you either: a) great music you've never directly heard, or b)one fantastic song distilled into twelve. I've only gotten one of b (Will Smith's 'Willenium.' Uhhhh.) Big Star are definately A. If you've seen That 70's Show, you'll recognize "In the Street." Cheap Trick covered the song better in my opinion. But to think such a great song is the worst on these 24 tracks is incredible. Any band can find something to cover here. Blisful, heartfelt...just buy it and feel like a teen in a garage band again.
