Product Details

180gm vinyl LP pressing. Although the original members of the Memphis quartet Big Star recorded only the album, #1 Record together and were dissolving rapidly by the time the second, Radio City, was completed, those records have influenced countless '80s and '90s rockers on both sides of the Atlantic, from the Replacements and R.E.M. to England's Primal Scream and Scotland's Teenage Fanclub. That Big Star's impact should extend so far afield is less surprising in light of the band's own inspirations. Taking the gritty soul of Memphis rhythm and blues and fusing it with the artful melodies and vocal harmonies of British power pop, and injecting it all with a flailing, pre-punk, garage-band energy, Big Star created a unique sound with a universal appeal. Originally released in 1972, Big Star's legendary debut, #1 Record was the second release for the newly formed Ardent Records. Their simple, light pop and jangly guitars mixed with sweet harmonies was ahead of it's time, garnering a die-hard cult following and receiving widespread critical acclaim. A remarkable document of innovative craft and content!
