MORE INFO

In its first era, Big Star's musical style drew on The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and The Byrds. They produced a style that foreshadowed the alternative rock of the 1980s and 1990s. Before it broke up, Big Star created a “seminal body of work that never stopped inspiring succeeding generations” in the words of Rolling Stone as the “quintessential American power pop band” and “one of the most mythic and influential cult acts in all of rock & roll”. During the group’s hiatus in the 1980s, the Big Star discography drew renewed attention when R.E.M. and the Replacements, as well as other popular bands, cited the group as an influence. Now for the first time ever on vinyl is this amazing tribute to Big Star. Featuring the likes of Afghan Whigs, Mathew Sweet, Juliana Hatfield, Whiskeytown and Wilco plus
many more.
