Song of the Day: Big Star
Did you know that Big Star released an album in 2005? How was I not aware of this? These guys rule. For starters, pick up the amazing double re-release of #1 Record/Radio City, the best power-pop record of all time. Yes, even better than Cheap Trick's In Color (see below).
Alex Chilton, who now fronts the band after the death of former co-frontman Chris Bell in 1978, sounds as young, vulnerable and eager as he did thirty years prior. They've also added a nice music video at the above link.
