Product Notes

Big Star was an American rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1971. In the Big Star Vinyl Bundle you get two of their classic LP's on Vinyl. You get #1 Record [LP] and Radio City [LP] both on Vinyl LP.

#1 RECORD

Originally released in 1972, #1 Record is the debut album from Big Star, a critically acclaimed, Memphis-based band which is often credited with creating the power pop sound. Remastered from the analog stereo masters, this reissue will allow fans to appreciate #1 Record as a standalone CD this is the first time in many years that the CD version of the album will be sold independently of Big Star's second album, Radio City.

#1 Record has become widely recognized as a milestone album in the history of rock 'n' roll. In 2003, Rolling Stone included it in their '500 Greatest Albums of All Time' list, while the publication included song 'Thirteen' in their '500 Greatest Songs of All Time' list the following year.

This reissue comes during a time of resurgence for Big Star, a band whose legacy has been widely recognized as of late, with a tribute record (Big Star Small World, 2006), a documentary (2012's Nothing Can Hurt Me) and a touring live show, 'Big Star's Third,' which features the sole-surviving original member of the band, Jody Stephens, on drums, guest vocalists, a chamber orchestra and a core band including Mike Mills, Chris Stamey of The dB's, The Posies' Ken Stringfellow and others.

The critically acclaimed, Memphis-based band is often credited with creating the power pop sound, and has become a cult favorite over the years. Remastered from the analog stereo masters, this reissue will allow fans to appreciate Radio City as a standalone CD—this is the first time in many years that the CD version of the album will be sold independently of #1 Record. Mike Mills cites

One half of Big Star’s songwriting duo, Chris Bell, made the decision to leave the band following the 1972 release of #1 Record, which left Alex Chilton at the helm as primary songwriter on album number two. Chilton was able to use this opportunity to shine and prove himself to be an incredible songwriter on his own. Journalists noticed: bearing a tongue-in-cheek title, Radio City garnered rave reviews and produced several cult favorites, including “September Gurls,” which has been covered by everyone from

In his liner notes, Mike Mills writes, “On Radio City, Chilton confirms his place as one of the best songwriters in rock and roll. While ‘September Gurls’ may be the best-known song from this album, every other song here is one that I wish I’d written.”
