Big Star | Complete Third: Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes | 180g Vinyl 2xLP

  • $ 32.99

Critically acclaimed Big Star Complete Third boxed set, Volume 2, titled Roughs To Mixes continues the journey, featuring rough mixes from producer Jim Dickinson, as well as Ardent’s John Fry, with over 15 previously unissued tracks.

Almost every song on this collection is making its vinyl debut. Included are Lesa Aldridge’s take on The Velvet Underground’s “After Hours,” and a version of “For You” with vocals from Alex Chilton (songwriter and Big Star drummer Jody Stephens sang the iconic album version.) This release is the bridge from the early demos, and the listener can feel the progression toward what would be listed as one of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time – Big Star’s Third.
