LP Radio City Big Star

$37.95(AUD)  inc GST

"Wistful piano songs bordering on contemptuous/tortured with aching harmonies & shimmering guitars. Chris Bell had recently been edged out & Chilton was raging defiantly. Maybe it's powerpop, maybe it's the ashes of 60s pop, but it's all melancholy & perfect for drunken wallowing. William Eggleston (who's pix generally look like a lush version of a Jandek record) did the cover."


Radio City is the second album by the American rock group Big Star. Released in 1974, Radio City was recorded during 1973 at Memphis' Ardent Studios. Though not a commercial success at the time, it is now recognized as a milestone album in the history of power pop music. The original Ardent Records LP featured record-jacket photographs by noted photographer William Eggleston, including The Red Ceiling on the cover. Eggleston was a close friend of band member Alex Chilton.
