THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME, we're talking Big Star, a band that if you're into - YOU'RE INTO. This album's a masterpiece (they have three of 'em btw), contains the finest song ever written (Thirteen) and along with The Velvet Underground essentially invented indie music (lets argue). There's not a minute on this record that isn't a pure joy, the chimes of those guitar, the charisma of Alex Chilton, the tortured soul of Chris Bell and even the 'India Song' acts as the perfect kind of throwaway album track. Drop me an email if you wanna talk Big Star. 

For those who dig: perfection.

Recorded at Ardent Studios and released in 1972, the album has gone on to become one of the most influential and iconic debut albums of all time. This 50th-anniversary indie exclusive edition is pressed on 180-gram metallic gold with purple smoke vinyl and features all-analogue mastering by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl. The album has been included in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, with the song “Thirteen” featured in its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
