Big Star

(Conqueroo) Stax Records will be celebrating the music of the acclaimed group Big Star with the release of a new 16-track compilation album on June 16th as a 2-LP, 45 rpm album housed in a gatefold jacket, as well as on CD and digitally.

We were sent the following details: The collection spans all three of the influential band's LPs (1972's #1 Record, 1974's Radio City and Third, released after the group disbanded, in the late '70s), and features rare edits of some of their most popular songs.

Liner notes from Grammy Award-winning writer and director Robert Gordon, plus an introduction by the sole surviving Big Star member, drummer Jody Stephens, round out the package.

The vinyl edition will feature lacquers cut at Ardent Studios and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing.
