Big Star "#1 Record (Remastered)" LP
The seminal debut album from the quintessential American power pop band now available on domestic vinyl for the first time in a generation. Features the classic line up of Alex Chilton, Chris Bell, Andy Hummel and Jody Stephens. LP includes faithfully restored sleeve and label art.
#1 Record is the only Big Star album which has the combined writing power of both founders, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell. Fervent Anglophiles, Chilton and Bell employed a Lennon/McCartney style of collaborative songwriting to create their debut Chilton taking a visceral approach, often laying down guitar and vocal tracks in one take, while Bell added polish with overdubs and harmonies.
#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.
