More Info:

RADIO CITY is the 1974 follow up to Big Star's debut, #1 RECORD. The critically acclaimed, Memphis-based band is often credited with creating the power pop sound, and has become a cult favorite over the years. Remastered from the analog stereo masters. Packaging includes new liner notes penned by R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, who cites Big Star as one of his biggest influences. One half of Big Star's songwriting duo, Chris Bell, made the decision to leave the band following the 1972 release of #1 RECORD, which left Alex Chilton at the helm as primary songwriter on album number two. Chilton was able to use this opportunity to shine and prove himself to be an incredible songwriter on his own. In his liner notes, Mike Mills writes, 'On RADIO CITY, Chilton confirms his place as one of the best songwriters in rock and roll. While 'September Gurls' may be the best-known song from this album, every other song here is one that I wish I'd written.'
