Big Star - #1 Record (RSD Essentials) [Gold & Purple Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Regarded as one of the most influential rock albums of all time, #1 Record, the seminal debut album from Big Star features the classic line up of Alex Chilton, Chris Bell, Andy Hummel and Jody Stephens.
#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.
50th Anniversary METALLIC GOLD & PURPLE SMOKE vinyl produced by Cured Vinyl in 2023 for the 'RSD Essentials' campaign. All-analog mastering by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl.
