Mr. Alex Chilton

Let me just say, without Alex Chilton/Big Star there would be no My Friend Autumn. The DNA of #1 Record, Radio City and Third/Sister Lovers throughout our catalog. You might have heard Mr. Chilton passed away last week, it's time you discover him. Big Star is the gateway: there are several less-than-even solo albums with even greater riches of this artist who couldn't sit still.

True to the song "Alex Chilton" by The Replacements, "what's that song? I'm in love with that song" is the way it usually goes. I'd try to suggest specific songs, but really, there are only three Big Star albums. You spent more on beer last weekend.
